Activities Department Events
SCLH Summer Amphitheater Concert Series
The Summer Amphitheater Concert Series is the crown jewel of our renowned activities department! Each year, the Orchard Creek Lodge Amphitheater is host to some of the hottest concerts in the area, featuring many recognizable acts, such as Darlene Love, Gary Puckett, Chubby Checkers, and more! We host up to eight hotly-anticipated concerts during the warm summer evenings, with typical attendance numbers in the thousands. Residents enjoy the casual atmosphere, in which they are permitted to place their own lawn chairs from a vantage point of their choosing. Tasty food and beverage options are made available by the Meridians staff, with full bar service as well. Don't miss out on the fun - join us for a fabulous evening at the next Summer Amphitheater Concert!
Meridians Cinco De Mayo Brunch
The Cinco de Mayo brunch is one of our communities' most favored events at Meridians Restaurant! Every year, our team creates a fabulous array of delicious Mexican entrees, sides, beverages, and desserts for those lucky enough to reserve their spots in time. Happy hour specials were offered all day, and the margaritas were flowing! Of course, no Cinco de Mayo celebration would be complete without music! So we invited Mariachi Continental De Sacramento to perform an enjoyable collection of their favorite Mexican folk songs, and they were more than happy to perform a piece for each and every table! We look forward to this event every year, and hope that you will be able to join us for the next one!
Meridians Farm to Fork Event
The Farm to Fork event featured some of the tastiest wines from the area's most popular local wineries, paired with seasonal Farm to Fork entrees. The special dinners were hosted by Meridians on a weekly basis throughout the month of April 2015. The guests had a marvelous experience, with free wine tasting, and special Happy Hour wine prices for the duration of the evening. The Farm to Fork dinners were a great success, and we look forward to hosting similar events in the months to come!
SCLH Solar Ice Cream Social
The SCLH Community Association, with guidance from the Board of Directors, recently approved the installation of a very large solar panel array for the Orchard Creek Lodge parking lot. Deliberations and negotiations for the project had been ongoing for several months, before the Board was ready to present the plan to the residents of Sun City. A massive undertaking was led by our Executive Director, Chris O' Keefe, in order to meet the community approval requirements of over 3,000 resident household signatures, before the project could break ground. The Ice Cream Social event was held to celebrate the completion of the approval process and to thank the many resident volunteers who provided great assistance in obtaining the required signatures from our community members.
5K Breast Cancer Fun Run
The WellFit 5K Fun Run for Breast Cancer is a relatively new tradition at Sun City, and one that we are quite proud of! Since 2014, we have organized 5K runs to help raise funds for leading breast cancer foundations that are committed to using donations to actually benefit the fight against this horrible disease that affects 1 out of every 8 American women. This year we raised over $1,100 from our residents' donations, and our sights are set even higher in the years to come! We welcome all of our residents, as well as the greater community of Lincoln, to join us at the next run, as we work to do our small part in the fight against breast cancer.
Breast Cancer Association Social
At our Association Social, there was something for everyone – including Grilled Burgers, Cupcakes, Basketball Free Throws, a Zumba Dance Class – even Sports Cars and a genuine Race Car on display! The Lincoln Highway Band provided the sounds, and our residents provided the smiles! The 2016 Association Social was a great time for a great cause, with proceeds benefiting the Placer County Breast Cancer Foundation. We couldn’t think pink without you!
