Mica and Bill Sleeper were the first residents of Magnolia Place, the newly opened clubhouse at Highland Springs.

As Bill and Mica Sleeper cut the ribbon at the grand opening of Magnolia Place, their four months of “camping” came to a close.

The couple sold their Lake Highlands house of 37 years in January, sooner than anticipated.

Two days after the grand opening of Highland Springs’ second clubhouse, Magnolia Place, the Highland Springs Chorus treated the North Dallas community to a musical spectacular to remember.

The chorus’s spring concert was the inaugural event in the newly unveiled arts and enrichment center inside Magnolia Place.

The Legacy Club at Highland Springs was established by residents to support the Resident Care Fund.

Like most great endeavors, the Legacy Club at Highland Springs sprouted from a single thought.

“How could we, as residents, fortify the Resident Care Fund?” says Sam Davidson, who’s lived at the North Dallas community with his wife, Sally, since 2008. “That was the question that set everything in motion.”

Highland Springs resident Linda Matzen works in the front office at Brentfield Elementary School in the Richardson Independent School District.

School’s out for the summer, but in a few months Linda Matzen will be back to work at Brentfield Elementary School in Richardson, Tex.

Elinor White knew she was ready for a change, but the thought of downsizing and selling her home of 40 years seemed overwhelming.

“My husband passed away in 2003, so I’d been alone in the house for a long time,” says Elinor, who lived in Plano, Tex. “I wanted something different, but there was 40 years of accumulation in the house. I just didn’t see how a move was possible.”

Ruby Nell Ormon holds a copy of her recently published book, My Dude, which tells the story of her family’s pet raccoon.

Ruby Nell Ormon had a story in her head for years.

“I kept telling myself ‘Tomorrow,’” says Ruby Nell. “Tomorrow I’ll get busy writing.”

The story percolating in Ruby Nell’s mind dates back to 1969, when her family took in a pet raccoon.

Lynn and Wells Field were married at Highland Springs on January 6, 2018.

If Wells Field could have seen how much his life would change in a year, he wouldn’t have believed it.

“Absolutely not,” says Wells, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps. “I thought I was happy living by myself and playing golf whenever I wanted.”
