Wow! What an awesome night! The kids club had a wonderful time and learned so much at the bat program tonight! Thank you so much Kerry Wixted! We are so lucky to have her here in Arden! We learned some crazy and amazing things about bats, took home a bat goody bag, compared our wingspan to the biggest bat on earth's (it was bigger than every kid there!), and we ended the night with an exciting hunt for bats with the bat detector!

Teens Club Game Night Nov 19th
Although a small crowd this month, we were able to celebrate Mary Kate's birthday and play some fun games!
Santa In The Sand Dec 5th
Before Santa even arrived at Beach 1 to see all the Arden kiddos, there were about 5 families anxiously awaiting. With the constant traffic of children telling Santa what they want for Christmas while their parents snapped their photo, Santa was able to take note and send information back to the North Pole to fill those orders! We can't wait to see the Jolly St. Nick next year!
Dec 10th ASC Holiday Party
We had a huge turnout of over 40 people to the annual Seniors Club Holiday Party. Tis the season to be giving and forgiving. Let us all learn some valuable lessons and take note of the things we are thankful for, and pray for those who are not as fortunate. We can all do good in this world, one soul at a time.
Ugly Sweater Happy Hour Dec 17th
Super fun evening with new and old friends and neighbors. Lots of ugly sweaters, a silent auction, and several door prizes. Not to mention a 50/50 raffle to top off the night.
We decked the Hall with beautiful holiday decorations and gave it just the right atmosphere for this special happy hour.
What a great way to meet your neighbors and make new friends!
5th Annual Arden Christmas Parade Dec 18th
Our special community parade gets better with every passing year. What a wonderful, creative display of holiday spirit and there's no better way to spread the holiday cheer to all of our neighbors than through this amazing event! If you have had the opportunity to participate in this parade, you will know exactly the heartwarming feeling that this season and this parade brings to Arden on the Severn. Our official parade video is in the works now, but you are sure to find neighbor produced videos all over our social media outlets. A special thank you to Karen Selckmann for her tireless organization and planning of this amazing event and for John Murphy leading the way and keeping us safe during our journey through Arden. We would also like to thank our special guest who provided the vintage fire truck, as well as Greg Jeffries for brining up the rear in his beautifully decorated wrecker. And Santa was absolutely magical and brought smiles to so many faces as he passed by singing Merry Christmas! And, last but not least, all of our neighbor participants and many other volunteers who make this parade the success that it is. Thank you all for your support!
AKC Holiday Workshop Dec 19th
This kids event is special in that it gives them the opportunity to make those special gifts for the ones they love. What a great way to bring out their creative minds and the opportunity to learn about giving. Nothing like those hand-made gifts from our babies.
Reported by Jessica Singletary: "Loved seeing all of the beautiful things everyone made today! Thank you all for coming out and celebrating together today - it was a great time and so nice to see some familiar faces and meet some new ones as well . Thank you especially to Kerry Wixted - we can't wait to hang up our bird feeder after it sets! And to Lena Mullen for being so awesome and staying to help clean up. Also, thank you so much Francine Young Mastin for collecting for the Veterans. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday!"
