    Spring 2020 began with something no one ever expected: a global pandemic that led to the Colorado governor’s stay-at-home order. Almost overnight, our lives changed dramatically — and we continue to experience the repercussions of this event.

    At Sterling Ranch, we lived through this ever-changing reality just like the rest of the world. But here, one thing remained constant — members of our community came together and enriched each other’s lives . . . just like they always do! From offering work-at-home advice to raising money to support health care workers, we have witnessed many acts of kindness around here.

    Sterling Ranch Lifestyle Director Rises to the Challenge

    Notably, our Community Lifestyle Director, Kate Kunzie, has been our champion through it all. During a time when it was easy to feel lonely and confined, she made sure Sterling Ranch residents stayed connected to each other and the entire Sterling Ranch community.

    Kate planned what seems like countless virtual (and social-distance-friendly) events, kept residents in the loop regarding what was going on in the neighborhood and made sure every single person felt included and safe. We feel lucky to have had her leading the charge this spring and are grateful for her continuous support.

    Sterling Ranch Spring Events Recap

    Here’s a recap of the excitement Sterling Ranch residents experienced while staying at home this spring.

    Daily Food Truck Offerings

    Over the past few months, we have enjoyed the flavors of the world: Asian (and not-so-Asian) dumplings, yummy Italian pizza, Southern-style BBQ, delicious Mexican tacos, fried chicken, ice cream and so much more! These food truck offerings continue to be a weekly treat for our residents.

    Virtual Storytimes for the Little Ones

    When the libraries and schools closed, the kiddos in our lives sure missed reading, playing and hanging out with their friends. Thankfully, Sterling Ranch offered virtual storytimes twice a week, hosted by our very own resident volunteers. Kids were able to sit down and listen to some of their favorite stories via the Facebook Live feature. Every week, they eagerly tuned in to hear more.

    Front Porch Happy Hours

    Every Friday at 5 p.m., Sterling Ranch residents came out on their porches and toasted each other from a distance. It was a fun way to celebrate the neighborhood, find community and relax at the end of what, for most, was a busy week.

    Colorado State Patrol Scavenger Hunt

    This scavenger hunt was an event for the books! The Colorado State Patrol put together 35 goody bags for the community and hid them along the neighborhood trails and open spaces. Residents went out walking and searching for these bags; the kiddos especially had a blast running around, seeking and yelling “Finders Keepers” at the top of their lungs. Residents of all ages had fun on this glorious day.

    Eggstravaganza Drive-By Breakfast and the Golden Egg Hunt

    We revamped our annual Easter Eggstravaganza event this year and it was a hit! Volunteers served a yummy drive-by breakfast to all who signed up for the event. Breakfast was followed by a self-guided Golden Easter Egg hunt along the community’s many trails.

    Sterling Ranch Graduation Week Shout-Outs

    With so many grads missing out on commencement ceremonies, we knew we had to step up. We honored these students by giving them a special shout-on social media and our email newsletter. Friends and family got to chime in with meaningful messages to make sure our graduates felt special and loved. Every recognized grad also received a Sterling Ranch Summer Gift Bag delivered to his or her front door.

    Active Minds

    Our monthly educational Active Minds discussions continued as planned via Zoom. At length, we discussed interesting topics such as Shakespeare’s life story and its connection to his novels, the South Pole’s history and Ireland’s complicated future due to Brexit.

    Community Safari Hunt

    Sterling Ranch residents placed a variety of animals on their windowsills so children could walk around looking for and identifying the many forest (and desert!) creatures on display. Families found this was a great way to spend the afternoon and get some much-needed sunshine and laughter.

    Virtual Wine Tasting

    Blanchard Family Wines hosted a virtual wine tasting for Sterling Ranch residents. The company delivered wine tasting kits, featuring four half bottles of wine, to participants’ front porches. It was a delightful way to spend a Saturday night.

    Landscaping Class

    This virtual class was designed for all Sterling Ranch homeowners who wanted to get the dirt on designing and installing their yards. Our Architectural and Community Standards Director, Heather Calme, provided some fascinating info on water-wise landscaping practices and the Rachio smart irrigation controller that comes with every home. Thanks to all her helpful advice and our residents’ green thumbs, Sterling Ranch yards look pretty incredible these days!

    Back-to-Beautiful Haircuts

    A local mobile barber and beauty salon, The Cut on Location, has provided Sterling Ranch with on-site services since May. This affords everyone an easy way to get haircuts (and more!) right in the neighborhood. The chic, retro-looking (and uber-ventilated) truck we get to hang out in during appointments exudes a major cool factor.

    Bouquet Delivery on Mother’s Day

    Sterling Ranch mamas, and all the people in their lives who wanted to celebrate them, were thrilled to have the Bloom Bar flower truck return after last year’s successful event. The Bloom Bar gals drove to every home to deliver elegant bouquets. Of course, their beautifully arranged wildflowers were a smashing success yet again.

    Food Drive

    The spirit of giving is alive and well at Sterling Ranch. Due to the pandemic, the Help & Hope Center — a local food bank serving Douglas and Elbert counties — needed our assistance more than ever. During our summer food drive, residents were quick to help and donated money, food and toiletries to those in need.

    Virtual Barre Class

    These days, wellness is more important than ever, so we wanted to make sure that our residents had many options to move their bodies and exercise this spring. Barre3, a local boutique fitness studio, hosted a virtual barre class — it was a hit and left us sore and excited for more!

    Photo Contests

    Who doesn’t love a good photo contest? From submitting pictures of their beloved pets and outdoor hikes to gushing about their favorite father figures, our residents shared some incredible family photos with their neighbors and friends. This was especially heartwarming because through these contests we were able to honor and recognize the many things that connect us as humans — our love of family, furry friends and the great outdoors.

    A Southern-Style Cooking Class

    For this finger-licking-good event, local restaurant and cooking class host Uncorked Kitchen dropped off meal kits at our residents’ doors. Later, an experienced chef virtually guided the lucky participants through making a delicious Southern-style three-course meal. It was a (tasty) night of fun for all.

    Fort Night

    What a fun idea! Many Sterling Ranch residents set up tents inside their homes or outside in their yards. Kiddos read books with the help of their trusty flashlights, giggled till midnight and couldn’t wait to share their photos with their friends the next day.

    More fun to come

    As restrictions are lifted and our lives begin to look more normal, we look forward to enjoying summer together as a community and attending a variety of upcoming virtual and in-person events.
