With decorated trees, twinkling lights and holiday murals, the Country Club was transformed Sunday into the perfect home away from home for Santa and Mrs. Claus. Resplendent in red, the couple welcomed families attending the club’s annual Santa Brunch with children turned out in their holiday best. While some little ones needed coaxing, others could hardly wait to have their annual chat with Santa and receive a candy cane from Mrs. Claus. The holiday decorating magic was supplied by club employee Keleigh Sandifer.

Story: New fishing rules go to community

Holiday lights

Two groups of homeowners were honored by the Rancho Murieta Association for having the best holiday lights in Rancho Murieta.  This group is the multi-year winners.

[News brief published Dec. 16] The Rancho Murieta Association board was urged at its monthly meeting Tuesday night to take action against those who break the rules when fishing in community lakes, threatening to damage the lakes for years to come.  The board honored the winners of the RMA’s holiday lights contest and declined to relocate the “Alah” holiday decoration to a spot where it can be monitored around the clock. Read more »

Murieta Memories: North Gate, 1974

North Gate 1974

As we face a winter of work on a new North Gate, here's a look at the original North entrance work in May 1974. By then the North Course had been open for 2½ years, and that month the community's first retail home sales started, with the sales operation sharing space with the Country Club's pro shop. (Eventually, the sales operation would move to what we know as the Rancho Murieta Association building.) At lower right you can see chain-link fences at Jackson Road and the community sign that came down in the late 1990s -- a twin to one across Jackson Road that stood, sad and crumbling, until this year.  Click the photo to see a larger version.

Donating coats to help the needy

Coat Dinner

It may have been damp and rainy outside, but it was warm and friendly inside for the annual Coat Dinner held at St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church Friday night. Organizers said this was the 14th year that coats, jackets and sleeping bags were exchanged for a chili dinner among friends and neighbors. This year’s donations help families in Weed, Ore., where 100 homes were lost in a wildfire, and the homeless population served by Loaves and Fishes in Sacramento.
