Adopt-a-Tree Program – Volunteers Needed
Willow Creek III will be planting 14 new trees in our community and need friends, family, and
volunteers to help them thrive. This volunteer commitment will require additional watering of
the trees during the summer, fall and winter months, wrapping the trunks in late fall and
reporting any issues to the team. Care instructions will be given for each tree. Talking and
singing to the trees is optional but encouraged! 

If interested in volunteering, please email Donna at

Dolphins Swim Team 2023 Registration April 1 – June 1
Willow Creek III has a summer swim team! It is a must for all of the kids in the neighborhood and surrounding areas. You don’t have to be a Willow Creek resident to join! It is a great place to practice what the kids may already know, learn more and learn other strokes and generally be more comfortable and proficient around the water. And they usually have a lot fun while they’re at it! Plus hanging out with their friends or meeting new friends!

The team is for all abilities and levels with an emphasis on learning to swim better. There are a handful of year-round swimmers, but the big majority of the team is kids having fun for the first part of the summer. Many swimmers have little or no experience when they start, and it’s the team’s job to introduce them to the sport of swimming. The Dolphins’ website is loaded with plenty of information!


Saturday, June 17, 1:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Willow Creek III residents let’s get together for some pool time, pizza, DJ Shaker, games and fun! Food and soft drinks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your own adult beverages in pool-safe containers.  Add to your calendar.

Volunteers are needed (appreciated!) to help with event setup, cleanup and game organization.  Email to sign up!
