Chatting about a new novel in a book discussion group or sharing your thoughts during a guest speaker presentation? Enjoying a glass of wine or a beer in the lounge while listening to live entertainment? Catching a classic black and white film or a contemporary thriller in our movie theatre with a bag of freshly-made popcorn? Going for a stroll on our walking paths and taking in captivating views of the Silver Star Mountains?
