It was a “Winter Wonderland” at the 2022 Holiday Charity Luncheon Wednesday, December 7th. Christmas trees, seasonal quilt projects, snowflakes and snowy centerpieces decorated the ballroom. Nearly 90 Shadow Hills women and guests mingled as they listened to the Northside Clarinet Quartet play Christmas favorites.
This year the event was dedicated to the memory of Cindy Anderson, a long time Shadow Hills favorite of anyone who knew her. Betsy Ovitt presented the back-story to this lovely women telling how her closest friends rallied around her during her illness. Green Hill Humane Society was the obvious choice to be this year’s beneficiary representing Cindy’s love of animals and support of pet adoption. Cindy’s own dog, Buddy, a Green Hill rescue, was the guest of honor along with his new parents.
Attendees donated over $2500 through direct donations and the purchase of raffle tickets. Kudos again this year to the Shadow Hills quilting group for the amazing creations they donated.
The Hearts for Hospice resale “store” was able to collect $450 through sales and donations. Their participation is appreciated.
Amy and Rob Bennett funded all the desserts for a new event this year – The Dessert Dash! Although no running was involved it was fun for reps to chose a special dessert for their table. Thank you Bennett’s for your generosity.
And finally thank you to our amazing staff: Stacy and her team, Amy and the banquet crew and those behind the scenes that made this event a success.

An overflow crowd attended Dave and Jenny’s retirement reception on April 3rd, to recap an overwhelmingly successful 16 years of service to Shadow Hills CC.
Starting off with an introduction by current Board President, Marilyn France, it was officially MC’d by longtime board President and committee member, Jim Creech. After several brief stories about Dave and Jenny’s work at Shadow Hills, the event was turned over to Patric Miller, who presented a “History of the Shelton Era” video (see link below).
Following the video, several members spoke of their gratitude, and personal stories of Jenny’s helpfulness and creativity, as well as Dave’s dedication to making significant changes to Shadow Hills that will last for generations to come. And before Dave gave his closing remarks, new General Manager Ryan Wyckoff voiced his appreciation for working with Dave, as well as his beliefs that the club will continue to improve on the legacy that Dave and Jenny created.
Several, “Thank you gifts” were presented; by the board (a generous bonus check), several of the GMs who worked with Dave (a signed Aaron Rodgers Superbowl MVP Jersey) and a gift certificate for Jenny to Gray’s Gardens, a well as a signed SHCC flag from the staff, and a framed Register Guard article from Jim Hukill, from the huge interview done when the new clubhouse opened.
It was a wonderful day, with gratitude, laughs, and a few tears abounding.
We all wish Dave and Jenny success in their “newly retired” state, and look forward to seeing them on the course, as members!

They came, they gathered, they social distanced, played and were fed. And in the end, another entertaining “Covid-Altered” golf event was held at Shadow Hills.
From all reports, everyone had a blast, and came away well-fed by the feast put on by our restaurant staff. While there was no after dinner dancing or organized entertainment (some would say trying to eat with masks is entertainment enough), there was a lot of fun golf played, with new and old faces on the winner’s leader-board.

Another “Holiday Triumph” took place on December 4th, as the Shadow Hills Women held their annual Holiday Luncheon and Fundraiser event. A wide variety of entertainment and donated offerings were presented, with the proceeds going to “Bags of Love.”
