What’s New at Sanatoga Ridge?
A Hand-Painted Welcome!
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – July 27, 2022
One of the special things about Sanatoga Ridge Community is the fact that nearly all of our clubs, classes, trips, and personal touches are resident-driven. Want to start a pickle ball team? Feel like running an exercise class? Always wanted to plan parties and events? Have a special talent you’d like to teach others? Residents are welcome to celebrate and share their talents with others in the community! Pictured above are hand-painted “Welcome Rocks,” created by resident and former art teacher Wanda, which are placed by the Sales Team in the front garden of each new resident to celebrate his arrival!
How Does Your Garden Grow?
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – July 17, 2022
Does YOUR retirement community have a community garden? Ours does! Residents can choose a small or large plot in which they can grow whatever they like! Our 2022 garden is one of our best ever… We have zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, peas, tomatoes, lettuces, herbs, and even marigolds and zinnias! Pictured above is a proud resident showing off the first zucchini of the season! Nothing like fresh veggies or a home-grown salad for dinner!

Clapping and laughing surrounded the ribbon cutting of our new pickleball court! It was an exciting day as we learned how to play the game (very easy) how to serve, (not too bad) and how to announce and keep score (us, them, server number).

Trying Our Hand at a Eggs-ceptionally Tricky Craft!
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – April 01, 2022
Sanatoga Ridge residents tried their hand at Pysanky, a Ukrainian tradition of decorating eggs using a wax-resist method similar to batik. Using a kistka, a small wooden tool with a metal funnel which holds melted beeswax, residents drew their designs on the eggs. Eggs are dipped in dye, and a new layer of the design is drawn with more beeswax. After several layers of drawing with hot wax and several baths in dye, the wax is then melted off, and the design remains on the egg. For most, this was a first-time eggs-perience, and though quite challenging, was enjoyed by all!
Spring Has Sprung!
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – March 23, 2022
Never have we ever been more ready for Spring than we are this year! Warmer weather means residents are outside on our walking paths, chatting in the gazebos, and admiring our first Spring blooms! We’re all so happy to see the yellow daffodils and purple pansies and crocuses all nodding their heads, “Yes! Spring has Sprung!”
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – March 17, 2022
Top O’ The Morning to you from our very own leprechaun, Jon Kline, who wears many hats at Sanatoga Ridge. Eccentric and a bit quirky, and taller than most leprechauns, he is hard to pin down, as he bounces around campus saying hello to residents, and occasionally playing pranks. You may spot him walking through a renovation in progress, leading a tour for prospective residents, or extolling the luckiest parts of living at Sanatoga Ridge. When he’s not out and about, you can find him in our Sales Office

300 Pounds of Chocolate-Covered Peanut Butter Eggs!
Sanatoga Ridge Sales & Marketing – March 14, 2022
So many multi-talented residents mean that there is always something happening on our campus!! These residents and friends have gathered for more than 20 years to make chocolate-covered peanut butter eggs, donating profits to Out of The Darkness, a national suicide awareness and prevention organization. Clearly, they’ve got it down to a science with separate stations for making the batter, rolling the eggs, freezing the eggs, inserting the toothpicks, dipping the eggs, removing the toothpicks, weighing the eggs, and boxing them up. This month alone, they will make over 300 pounds of chocolate covered eggs; some peanut butter and some coconut!
