African American Social Group The African American Social Group

invites all black residents to join us in fellowship as we socialize and welcome new homeowners to Robson Ranch. Only one member of the family needs to be black. We hold gatherings at a resident’s home or in a restaurant. Our African American


book group meets monthly. We read a wide variety of books, including topics about science, history, mystery, novels and trilogies. Members recommend non-fi ctional and fi ctional

selections of

interest, as well as current and past best sellers and classics and we look forward to continuing the review and discussion of many authors’ works. Group members are involved in

activities and clubs at Robson Ranch as well as organizations in the community, some of which are on a national level. Why not join us? We are not a club, religious or political organization and do not charge fees. For additional information about joining us please contact Maria Milleage at 940-262-3108. | SUN LAKES SPLASH | October 2013

The accompanying photograph shows some examples of items made by our members. Not only do we make jewelry, we make polished bears and book ends out of solid rock, Ming trees, beads and decorated gourds.
