Events Report – April 2017

It is officially spring, I must say our household is ready! The tulips are showing their colors, the sun is staying out later, and it IS time to day dream about the summer ahead. Please consider joining me and your neighbors to kick off our summer and celebrate all that the neighborhood has to offer in our events line up. Please contact the assigned contact, or reach out to me directly if you’d like to be even more connected with our Events at
Here’s what is coming up….


When: SATURDAY, April 15th at 11am SHARP 
Where: Blue Ridge Beach Park 
Scoop: Free event for our community. Come on down and find some Easter Goodies, candies, and other surprises in plastic eggs. Please note, all children are able to “go for it!” at 11am, not a minute later. If you show up 5 mins late, there is a high probability that your child will not get any eggs. Kids today are determined! For all you new families, we have a special area set up for different age groups, including toddlers. Please walk on down to the beach park and enjoy the time with your neighbors. Tide will be in-between High and Low tides, so it could be a nice day to enjoy our amazing neighborhood beach too. Let’s all wish for fantastic weather.

When: Saturday, July 29th 
Where: Clubhouse and poolside* (*weather permitting) 
Scoop: This is a ticketed event where the cool kids, the Adults, can walk to the clubhouse and chill with all our amazing neighbors. In the past years we’ve had Fiesta’s, Hoedowns, and many more fun themed nights that include signature cocktails, sweet tunes, and more. We are looking for a lead to help us make 2017 a fun night to be talked about many years ahead. Darby Carlisle  who lead the event last year is the most organized person I’ve ever met and has agreed to help the new Lead hit the ground running with ease and grace. I couldn’t ask for an easier way to the pass the baton.
