By Larry Varnes, Vice President, Resident Director, Robson Ranch Denton HOA
While we are not a separately incorporated city, Robson Ranch residents feel very connected to the southern Denton County towns that are included in The Cross Timbers Gazette circulation area. We have grandkids attending local secondary schools. We shop the surrounding communities. There is a feeling of country all around us. It is our home, and as good neighbors we want to extend the opportunity to share some of what makes Robson Ranch so special.
For example, you will not want to miss the 3rd annual Robson Ranch Women’s Club Home and Garden Show on Saturday, March 28 with approximately 60 vendors with new and innovative products, E.A.R.S. Animal Adoptions and food and beverages for sale. There will be something for everyone. This free event will be at the Robson Ranch Clubhouse, 9428 Ed Robson Circle, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Profits benefit Our Daily Bread and Monsignor King Outreach Center.
Every Friday, we have a Farmers Market held in our Clubhouse parking lot from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m. Always weather permitting. Vendors include: Doug’s Country Market, Lucido’s Garden, Aunt Sue’s Barn, Pie by Kate, Salsa Revolution and two new vendors who debuted January 31: Naturally Grown Farms and Demeter’s Kitchen. Naturally Grown Farms’ specialty is micro greens and Demeter’s specializes in sourdough breads, spreads and spice.
Robson Ranch Wildhorse Golf Club now has 27 holes open for play, enabling more prime tee times from outside players. Many forget that our golf course, bar & grill, and banquet services are open to the public. There is a whole new world behind the welcoming gatehouse, just over the entrance bridge on Robson Road.
Behind that gate you’ll discover Robson Ranch residents being good neighbors and good citizens in support of improved infrastructure, including such things as the new fire station created by the Emergency Services District #1 as well as the new consortium brought together for improving Crawford Road. Several of our residents are active with various Denton advisory committees and commissions. And there probably is not a major charitable organization in Denton County that our residents and clubs don’t help in some way or another, including mentoring our youth.
Bottom line: We love where we live. We want to contribute to the good of the greater Denton County community. Stop by and you’ll always be greeted with a big Texas smile and a friendly wave. Try out our public facilities. I think you will like what you see.
