A Very Special Santa Day Celebration
Santa Claus is coming to town and to Willow Creek in a fire truck!  Join your Willow Creek community for its first Santa Day on Saturday, December 14 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Together, WC1, WC2 and WC3 HOAs, along with Derek Gilbert of The Gilbert Group, are co-sponsoring Santa Day!  Beginning at 12:30 p.m., thanks to the elves at South Metro Fire Rescue, fireman Santa will travel down East Mineral Drive on a fire truck and around the corner past Willow Creek Park to the Willow Creek 3 clubhouse.

Inside the clubhouse, you will have the opportunity to take pictures with Santa. Please bring your own camera.  Kids crafts, cookie decorating, music and snacks will be available. All of Willow Creek is invited to attend.  Enjoy this community-wide event!

If you are able to help volunteer, please email fiona_emeraldisle@yahoo.com.


Burning Calories Thanksgiving Morning
Snow on the ground, patches of ice along the route and the temperature hovering around 18 degrees didn’t deter an estimated 55 to 75 runners, walkers, strollers and family pets from participating Thanksgiving morning in the Willow Creek Turkey Trot/Hobble ‘til You Gobble. 
The free, low-key 5K (3.1-mile) event was actually two races merged into one – the Turkey Trot and the Hobble ‘til You Gobble.  Both races have a history of getting Willow Creek residents out and active on Thanksgiving morning, so organizers combined their time, energy and organizational skills into one event this year.  The race started and finished in the area between the two baseball fields in Willow Creek Park.  

Thank you to Fiona Maguire-O’Shea and Randy Rodman for their work on this family-friendly activity and to all who participated.  And thank you to Christine Justino with Your Castle Real Estate for providing sponsorship.


News Notes

Willow Creek 3 clubhouse

In case you are wondering when our Willow Creek 3 residential streets qualify for city snowplowing following a winter snow storm, here’s the scoop: The city prioritizes its streets into Priority 1, Priority 2 and Priority 3. Our WC3 streets are considered Priority 3.  According to the city’s website, “Priority 3 streets are maintained only when authorized by the City Manager or his designee. The City Manager will consider the following guidelines in determining when to authorize Priority 3 snow route plowing:  Forecasted street snow accumulation is six (6) or more inches;  Forecasted temperatures are below freezing for an extended period after the storm;  Forecasted additional snow events within the next 24-48 hours.”  Although city residents are not required to shovel their residential sidewalks, the city “strongly encourages citizens to remove snow from the sidewalks adjoining their property within 24 hours after a snowstorm ends.” Click here for details on the city’s snow removal requirements and guidelines….If you are new to Willow Creek 3, or simply haven’t yet provided your email address to our management company, you are missing out on important email blasts sent periodically to residents.  Information on special events as well as alerts and reminders are just some of the kinds of notifications that go out.  To be included on the email list, send your name, preferred email address and home address (needed to prove you are a WC3 resident) to Amanda Phifer at Spectrum Commercial Real Estate Solutions:  aphifer@scres.us.
