Crooked River Ranch Seniors

Barn House

A big Hello to everyone from the Crooked River Ranch Seniors.

We hold our meetings at the Old Ranch House, which was built in 1916 by the original owners of this 12000-acre ranch. The house stands on three acres and sports a big covered front porch fronted with a beautiful expanse of lawn area, site of many events throughout the year. With careful restoration we have maintained the integrity of the original look, adding a handicapped access walkway and an enlarged rest-room to accommodate wheelchairs. The wood floor in the main room has been refurbished, ceilings repaired and the heating and kitchen facilities updated. There is an extensive free library and exercise room. It’s an ideal facility for events such as weddings, family reunions etc. You may call 923-3155 for further information on rates, availability etc. To become a member of the senior group and take advantage of all it has to offer you must be at least 50 years young. Membership fees are moderate and affordable. You then have a choice of many active groups who usually meet on a monthly basis. Birders, Quilters, Wood Carving ( what a crazy group they are) Weight Loss program, AA Meetings and every other Thursday from 7  to 9 pm .there is the very popular Bingo. Finally On the last Friday of the month at noon we have Bunco … no reservation needed, just turn up.. On July 3rd. there is the Annual Buffalo Feed at McPherson Park. There will be lots of food plus booths with handmade artifacts. Kitty Pullen, of the  SandBagger Saloon right here on the ranch will supervise the grills. A senior van is also available to those needing transportation. On July 15th. we have our annual picnic at the Lions Memorial Park, serving hot dogs, hamburgers and as this is a potluck event we ask you to bring salads, desserts and any other tasty ‘fixins‘.
