Things are definitely starting Event-wise as we ramp up for summer. The interest for the Blue Ridge Wine Dinner was even bigger than I would have ever imagined. The seats for the dinner sold out in 48 hours with a number of people on the waiting list already! I’m hoping to see if we can make this a bi-annual event or perhaps next year try to do this for two nights to get everyone in! We’ve finalized the menu for the evening and we ask if anyone has a specific dietary request, please contact email@example.com asap so that we can accommodate your needs. For those that were lucky to snag a seat, here’s a preview of the menu we will be serving that evening. We’re going Old School with some of Tom Douglas’ favorites from all of his well-reviewed restaurants. Got question? He’ll be joining us for the dinner so you can ask him yourself!
Etta’s Spinach Salad
Curried Cashews, Red Onion and Sesame Dressing
Ella’s Rub with Love Salmon, Shiitake Relish
Cornbread Pudding with Caramelized Onion and Cheddar
Prosser Farms Summer Vegetable Slaw
Eggplant, Red Pepper and Red Onion Kebab
Prosser Farms Vegetable Slaw
Tom’s Triple Coconut Cream Pie
Wines are still currently being selected but remember Portalis will be on hand to do a tasting during the cocktail hour – bring your checkbook if you’d like to purchase some of the wines being featured for this evening’s dinner! As always, no event is done without the help of volunteers from our awesome community. I’m looking for assistance from those interested in helping with Set up on Saturday, June 6 from 2pm – 4pm. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can spare some time. I would so appreciate it!
Of course July wouldn’t be complete without our annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic! Brieanne Yuchasz and Holli Harris are knee deep in planning for our signature event and are looking for a number of people to assist them in their endeavors. If you haven’t done so already, please head to their sign up genius site to sign up and help make this event a success! http://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040548aba722a31-blue2
There are a SLEW of different ways you can volunteer and if you’re a student looking for community service hours, this is a fantastic way for you get some hours!
For those of you who are new to the community, this annual tradition will begin promptly at 11:00 am up at the clubhouse where our community Grand Marshall will lead the parade of neighbors down to the Woodbine Park for hot dogs, games, and all around community fun! Be sure to decorate your cars, bikes, scooters, and even yourselves when you come up to the clubhouse to join the parade. Want to just watch? The parade will meander down from the clubhouse along Valmay headed to the park. Grab a curbside seat, wave to the parade and then come down and join in on the fun! Of course once the picnic concludes, come back up to the pool and join in for the one day of the year where floaties are allowed in the pool and have a grand ‘ole time in the water! Questions? Be sure to email Brieanne at email@example.com or Holli at firstname.lastname@example.org
