Social Activities

We're Always Doing Something, and There's Something for Everyone!

Stonebriar Village is a vibrant, active and very social community.  Throughout the year there are numerous social activities for our residents which are sponsored by our Homeowners' Association, as well as many independent actvities and social groups that are heavily attended by our residents.  You will find things to do as couples, men, women, children or as a family.  

 
   
   

Board/HOA Sponsored Activities
The Stonebriar Neighborhood Committee, which is a committee under Stonebriar Village HOA, is a large group of subcommittees that coordinate activities and events throughout the year for our residents.  Some of the events produced by the Stonebriar Neighborhood Committee include:

Ladies' Luncheons - 3 a year
The Ladies Luncheon Committee endeavors to promote a sense of friendship and 
community among the women of Stonebriar Village by providing a friendly and 
relaxed luncheon environment.  The committee plans and hosts three luncheons per year in the
spring, fall and winter, which offer interesting, informative speakers and 
programs that have included:  homeowner Dr. Jennifer Engels sharing insight into maintaining a healthy lifestyle, Shay Geyer of IBB Design presenting current decorating trends and tips, and the ever popular Hebron High School Choir enchanting the audience with a medley of holiday favorites.

Cocktails 4 Us - 4 per year
Neighborhood adult-only cocktail parties are held in residents' homes about four times a year.  They typically attract 100+ residents and are a fantastic opportunity to meet and socialize with Stonebriar neighbors.  Cocktails 4 Us' on-going popularity is thanks to the gracious hosts and hostesses who open their homes to welcome our neighbors. 

National Night Out - Annually
As part of the nation-wide effort to meet your neighbors and reduce crime,
Stonebriar Neighborhood Committee hosts an annual event for National Night Out.  Typically held on the first Tuesday evening in either August or October, families gather, picnic and play at Shadow Ridge Park. The kids especially loved the giant water slide and rock climbing wall last year.  We also get to know the Mayor, City Councilmen, firemen and police that service our community when they bring their trucks and emergency vehicles.  Make plans to join us for a festive National Night Out this year.


New Neighbor Welcome Parties - 3 a year
Our vibrant neighborhood attracts many new residents each year, so a committee of volunteers plans fun parties for the Board of Directors and Neighborhood Committee to socialize with our newest homeowners.   They roll out the red carpet to welcome new homeowners and invite them to get involved in our community.

Fishing Tournament

The private stocked pond in our community affords an opportunity for a great catch and release fishing tournament for all ages each summer.  Sponsored by both the SNC and SMBG, the competitive spirits abound, but you don't need to be an expert to land a big one or go home with a trophy.  Just grab a rod and reel and join us at the pond for an afternoon of big fun and even larger fish stories about the ones that got away. 

Play Groups

Our youngest residents have plenty of social opportunities too.  Children residing in Stonebriar Village meet regularly at our local parks for playtime on the swings and junglegyms, shooting hoops on the sport court, tossing the ball in loosely organized games of football, lacrosse or soccer, or just riding bikes and scooters with friends.   They also participate in our annual Valentine's Day, 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas parties.  The Egg Hunt is another popular event that is filled with sugary goodness.

Street Festival
Each Spring, a fun-filled family event known as "Street Festival" is held at Shadow Ridge Park.  It's not uncommon to find 200-300 "young at heart" residents enjoying the farm animals in the petting zoo, scaling the sky high climbing wall, taking a turn in the bounce house, or participating in one of the many games of skill.  Other attractions have included face painting, balloon sculpting, tie-dye t-shirt creations, caricature artist renderings, and, of course, delicious catered food.     

Summer Nights in the Park
Attracting families and children, Summer Nights in the Park are held twice a month at Shadow Ridge Park. Activities have included Movie Nights, snow cones, tie-dye t-shirt making, ice cream socials and more. It's a great way to beat the Texas heat, relax and unwind with your friends and neighbors. 

Tailgating Party in the Park
Life in Texas wouldn't be complete without football.  And where there's football, there's tailgating parties!  Coordinated by both SNC and SMBG, this Fall event finds men, women and kids cheering on the Dallas Cowboys (playing on the big screen) while enjoying BBQ and cold drinks.  Don your football jersey and hat, grab your lawn chair and join us at Shadow Ridge Park on a Sunday afternoon.   
 

Additional Activities for Stonebriar Residents
A large number of activities are coordinated by and comprised of Stonebriar residents, yet they are not funded by our HOA. Some of;them include:

Slice Girls
If you enjoy golfing -- or would like to try it in the company of friends -- Slice Girls golf group plays 9 holes of golf every other week at local public golf courses.  After a round on the links, the Slice Girls treat their tastebuds to a delicious lunch at a local restaurant.  This social golf group extends beyond the walls of Stonebriar to include other local golfers, so it's a wonderful activity to meet friends from the Frisco and Plano area.

Knimble Knitters
With colorful yarn and knitting needles in hand, this group of ladies meets every Monday morning in knitters' homes to create lovely hats, vests, throws and more.  The group includes beginners as well as seasoned knitters.  If you want to learn how to knit, or just socialize as you work your craft, you're invited to join the Knimble Knitters.

Canasta

Ready to pair up and win -- at cards, that is -- then join one of our Canasta groups.  Filled with merriment and melds, the Canasta groups pair up to play the 2nd Friday of each month. 

Book Club
If you enjoy curling up in a cozy chair with your Kindle in hand and losing yourself in the pages of a thought-provoking novel or the latest best-seller, then the Stonebriar Book Club is for you.   This group meets the 3rd Thursday morning of each month to discuss the group's latest reading selection. 

Garden Club

Have a green thumb?  Or want to learn to garden like you do?  Then Garden Club is for you.   From Alyssum to Hibiscus to Zinnias, members see, experience and learn about perennials and annuals ideally suited for our north Texas soil and climate.  The lively discussions may delve into Neil Sperry's Guide to Texas Gardening or focus on the latest graftings from Texas A&M's horticulturists.  Members also enjoy bus tours to regional gardens, speakers from the Dallas Arboretum and local florists, as well as learning about how to decorate with local seasonal color and create dramatic floral arrangements.  Members really "dig" the Garden Club events and activities. 

Wine Tasting
If you're over 21 and prefer smaller more intimate gatherings, the Wine Tasting group provides opportunities for singles and couples to  socialize while enjoying wine tastings from around the world.  They meet in neighbor’s homes (sometimes bringing their own wines) to sample red varieties, whites, or a mixture of both.  Other times local sommeliers bring wines from their stores.  Not wanting to snub other popular beverages, the Wine Tasters have been known to sample local beers while enjoying dinner... and they even held a Champagne and Caviar event.  They invite you to raise a glass and toast your neighbors at an upcoming tasting. 

Bunco
Let the good times roll (and the dice, too) at our local bunco gatherings.  If you can roll the dice and count to 21, you've got the required skillset for bunco.  As you rotate tables and change partners, you'll be able to socialize with many new friends each time.  Several groups meet monthly.

Stonebriar Car Show
SMBG and resident 
Bob Deputy organized a show-worthy car showdown that classic car collectors like Jay Leno and fans of the hit show "Velocity" would love.  Last year's event attracted more than 30 exotic and vintage neighborhood cars including Rolls Royce, Bentley, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Jaguar, Ford, Fisker, Camaro, Volkswagen, and many others.  The event was such a hit, there have been numerous requests to make it an annual attraction.

Stonebriar Men's Breakfast Group (SMBG)

SMBG meets every Thursday morning from 8-10am at the StoneBriar Country Club, though many arrive about 7am for breakfast and social.

Founded in 2011 by resident Jim Hawkins, SMBG is a fun, self-funding group independent from Stonebriar Village HOA.  Many members reside in Stonebriar Village though membership includes gentlemen from SW Frisco who want to learn more about our greater community, current issues, and the world around us.   Some of the diverse, interesting speakers have included:
