Welcome to Dreamland Villa Community Club
Our mission is to foster honesty and respect and to communicate with our residents. Also to offer programs and activities, within the community, which will meet residents needs now and into the future.
What is the future of Dreamland Villa?
Income is no longer adequate to continue operations as we have enjoyed them in the past. The board is struggling for solutions and needs your help. Please come to one of the meetings Nov. 11th when the board will layout the situation and what the options are. The 2 pm meeting will be repeated at 7 pm to provide everyone a better opportunity to participate. The board is encouraging ALL residents to attend.
Not a member now? . . . so you figure this won't involve/effect you? Wrong! This may potentially affect the value of your property and how easy it will be to sell. Could we lose the 55+ status? Learn more here AND COME TO ONE OF THE MEETINGS!
Round Dancing starts Sept. 14th at Read Hall!

Walking is good exercise!
Would you like to walk more, but need a little nudge to get started? Maybe walking alone is the problem or you are just tired of walking in Dreamland. We now have two groups you might be interested in. The new Dreamland Desert Walkers is just getting started and will take short hikes on flat desert trials. If you are up to a little more strenuous hikes check out the Dreamland Hikers. Either way you can't go wrong. Thanks to Andrea Hill for organizing the new group.
Farnsworth Hall to Be Renamed
Before closing for the Summer the Board of Directors felt Farnsworth Hall should be renamed. At the present time it has been suggested that the hall be renamed Dreamland Villa Community Center. Forms for suggesting a name or comments were available at the office with a deadline of July 1. In the August Citizen Patty Thorpe, Board President, gave an explanation for the Board's decision and indicated there had been several comments received in opposition to changing the name. The Board will take up the subject at their Oct. Study session. If you are interested in submitting a comment or new name you can obtain a form at the office, however there is no assurance the Board will consider any submissions received after July 1. Follow the discussion here.
Volunteers step up and help out! There is a new safety fence separating John's Villa and the swimming pool, required by code. And it was all done with donations and volunteer help. Read more here.

Opportunity for EX-DVCC Members to Renew Previous members who let their membership lapse for nonpayment of 2012 or 2013 annual dues have an opportunity to rejoin the Dreamland Villa Community Club for 2014 without paying a penalty fee. The Dreamland Board has extended this offer as a goodwill gesture to former members who will again be able to take advantages of the facilities and activities offered by the Club in 2014. All that is required is to visit the Dreamland office and pay the current $125 per person annual dues for 2014.
