Stone Brooke Crossing has a Women's Bunco Group that is always looking for players. We meet the first TUESDAY of the month and alternate homes. The cost is just $5 to participate and you could walk away with some great prize$. We currently have 12 women playing and hope to get it up to 16. If there is a lot of interest a SECOND group can start up. What better way to get to know other FAMILIES in the neighborhood?

If you are interested in PARTICIPATING please email myself or Kim. We'd love to see some new faces! Next GAME: Tueday, November 4, 5529 Pebble Ct, start time is 7:30 p.m for some food & socializing - game begins at 8:00. We look forward to SEEING you there!

This weekend's Neighborhood Garage Sale & Open House Tour is upon us and we have had GREAT feedback! Our Stone Brooke Crossing neighbors are gearing up for some great garage sales. It's time to clear out those closets and unclutter your home!

If you have already turned in your registration forms and $15 then you will be recieving your garage sale permit tomorrow. Laura and I will be delivering these to you along with a copy of the neighborhood map that will be handed out to all the shoppers as they drive into our neighborhood on Crutcher Crossing (by the pool). You'll be the first to get a sneak peek at all the goodies your neighbors will be selling.

Make sure you stop by the pool and park area on Saturday morning, because we will be handing out donuts, courtesy of Carolyn Cantrell of Covenant Lending. Come on down and say HI and meet some of your neighbors.

OH, and did we mention you could win PRIZES? We will be drawing names every hour on the hour for gift cards - don't miss out! Tell your neighbors to head on down towards the SBC pool area and sign up. Laura and I look forward to meeting each of you.

Time is Running Out & FAQ

The deadline for turning in your registration form to participate in this Fall's Community Garage Sale is coming up! Turn in your forms by October 4. Instructions are on the form.

So far we've had a good response. A few of you have had some questions, so I thought I'd post those as well:

  1. Q: What is the $15 registration fee for? A: The money goes towards the advertising that is done for the sale - many newspapers, directional signs & online ads. Proceeds above this cost go to one of two places: The Samaritan Inn Gateway Apartment Project that our office supports OR directly into benefits for the neighborhood. For example, if we get a large enough turnout we'd love to get a bounce house for the kids to play in or some other activity that would benefit Stone Brooke Crossing.
  2. Q: What & When is the pre-sale? A: The pre-sale will be held from 7-8 Friday, October 10. This allows the registered garage sale participants to shop each other's items before the rush of shoppers on Saturday. Many times we are too busy with our own garage sales to enjoy prime shopping hours on Saturday. Simply have your garage sale items priced, displayed & ready to go before 7:00 PM on Friday. Only those that mark YES on their registration forms will be advertised as Pre-Sale Participants on the maps.
  3. Q: Where will the Sale be advertised? A: The Dallas Morning News, Star Community Newspapers (McKinney Courier Gazette, Allen American, Frisco Enterprise, Plano Star Courier, Little Elm Journal, Celina Record, etc..), Craigslist,, and more.
