The Mountain Meadows 21-acre community was founded in 1989 by Madeline Hill (http://www.mtmeadows.com/our-story/index.html) based on her astute vision of how a community could look, feel and operate itself. There are Craftsman-style homes, a tranquil park with a pond and walking paths, community gardens, a newly renovated clubhouse, a dining room, a fitness facility, a pool and so much more.
The community has its own real estate office with homes and condos currently for sale here (http://mtmeadows.com/homes/index.html). To find out about how Mountain Meadows operates, read more: (http://mountainmeadowsashland.com/).
Madeline Hill continues to reside there and has spent the last several years creating a Parkinson’s Fitness Center (https://www.facebook.com/ParkinsonsCentral/) for those like herself affected by this condition with exercise and dance classes available to the general public. Like other communities, there are many committees that help this entity run and give governance voice to those who live there. The Community Arts is one such committee dedicated to beautifying the location and providing opportunities for the artist residents to showcase their work. For the last three years, the Community Arts committee has featured these artists (https://www.numinousstudiowest.com/about) and craftsperson’s who reside at this lovely spot on the hill.
This year on Saturday, November 9th from 10:00 to 3:00 pm, you can attend their 4th annual show. There is no entry fee and coffee and scones will be served at no additional cost. Start your holiday shopping early and the best part is that a portion of the proceeds goes back into the Community Art Fun-d, as they affectionately call it, to continue promoting residents and the arts. The mission means that retired artists can still sustain, and the committee can offer this important public service for the whole entity. Not to mention that the handmade crafts including jewelry, tote bags, artist books, photography, handmade paper crafts like cards are second to none showcase skill and real talent Then, there are collectibles like quilts, antiques or a rare find hidden in someone’s closet that is also on display. In total, approximately 20 exhibitors will be on site ready to offer you unique gifts that you may not find anywhere else.
