Do you know a dedicated volunteer who deserves to be recognized for devoting time and energy to making our community a better place? Now is the time to nominate that person for a Crystal Award. Nomination forms are available at each of the three HOA reception desks and are online at

The deadline for nominations is December 10. A banquet to honor the newly-selected awardees will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2019.

The Crystal Award program, started in 2010, celebrates the importance volunteers play in making our community a special place.

To date, 69 outstanding volunteers have been honored. Each year, an additional group is recognized. They include people who have served their HOAs on the board or committees, people who have stepped up in service organizations like Neighbors Who Care or CAP, people who have volunteered to educate and entertain us through organizations like New Adventures in Learning or the Sun Lakes Community Theater and people who have organized community activities like golf leagues, tennis tournaments, card and game groups, travel and hiking outings.
