History

The Dobson Ranch Retirees' Club was organized in 1999 when several retired residents decided to meet and find ways to make new friends, stay active and become involved in Dobson Ranch activities together.  From its inception, the Retirees' Club has fostered the spirit of good fellowship, volunteerism and social activities on Dobson Ranch.  It has been a place to meet new friends and enjoy age-appropriate activities of common interest to the group.  General Meetings of the Retirees' Club are held at La Casita Recreation Center. Each year the membership of the club has grown as Dobson Ranch residents enjoy the camaraderie and functions offered by club members. There is a Board of Directors for the club and the Board meets on the third Monday of each month to plan events for future months, nominate new officers, suggest chairpersons and coordinate the activities of the club.

Coordination

Dobson Ranch Retirees' Club stays in touch with its members in a number of ways.  The monthly General Meeting brings members together to socialize and also to share information about happenings on the Ranch and within the club, such as the health and welfare of its members. At the General Meeting, an agenda is distributed about coming events and things of interest to members. The Retirees' Club maintains a database of members and email addresses. Members are notified by telephone or email of special events or items of interest. Announcements of coming events and a calendar of functions are available in the Retirees' Club Section of the monthly Ranchers' RoundUp magazine.

Committees

Committees include: Day Trippers, Dinner Night Out, Happy Hour, Men's Breakfast, Movie Day, Fun & Game Day, Ladies Lunch, Hiking, Cycling, and Picnics.
