WHAT’S BETTER THAN A DAY OF CELEBRATION?
WHY A WHOLE YEAR OF COURSE!
The Sea Ranch was born in 1964 or 1965, depending on the criteria used for its birth. The developer of The Sea Ranch, Oceanic Properties, filed the project with Sonoma County in 1964. The real estate office – now our post office – and Condo One were completed in 1965. So why limit ourselves to one arguable date or another?
We are designating Memorial Day Weekend of 2014 through Memorial Day Weekend of 2015 as our 50th Birthday. We need a full year to understand not only what our journey has been but more importantly, where we will steer The Sea Ranch in the coming years. There will be events, projects, workshops, and parties, enough to keep all of us busy on behalf of bettering our shared cause, our dear home, The Sea Ranch.
While some activities are open to the public, others are open to Sea Ranch visitors/renters such as you, staying at Sea Ranch Abalone Bay. We look forward to hearing from you about how you celebrated this auspicious year with us at Sea Ranch and Abalone Bay by posting your comments below or sharing on our FaceBook Sea Ranch Abalone Bay Fan page.

WHY CELEBRATE SEA RANCH’S 50TH BIRTHDAY?
As posted in The Sea Ranch Association website:
The Sea Ranch is like no other community on earth. A former sheep ranch, it lies along the northern Sonoma Coast, ten miles of grassy coastal meadows that meet the Pacific Ocean along a rocky shoreline strewn with black and white sand beaches, and stretches one mile inland, up into towering redwoods and then down to the Gualala River. The Sea Ranch offers an unusually rich and diverse landscape.
To learn more about this concept go toThe Sea Ranch Association website.
Sea Ranch’s 50th Birthday Committee, working under the umbrella of the Vision Committee, hopes that many Sea Ranch groups will contribute a 50th Birthday event or join with others to do so. In planning sessions with our community manager, we have developed a short form to help describe and formalize a proposed event and to provide the initial information we need as we act as the clearinghouse and central calendar for these projects. We have identified categories that are central to the 50th Birthday Celebration and hope to have at least one event that addresses each of these areas: Celebration, Community, Future, Inspiration, Legacy, and Stewardship.
