Decorate your wagons, bikes, cars, dogs, children and get ready to parade in style. We will end up at the new and improved Woodbine Playground/Park to enjoy hotdogs and old timey games. Don’t forget about our annual pie making contest! This year we are looking for people to shadow our leads to take this annual event for 2018! Contacts below for more information. This is an easy and fun way to get involved and make our neighborhood even better. Come and add your special Patriotic touch.
ANNUAL ADULT SUMMER PARTY:
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.
Blue Ridge Seniors: “Pacesetters”
Pacesetter is a Blue Ridge + group of predominantly senior citizens meeting once a month while sharing a potluck dinner and lectures/entertainment. One of our aims is to increase enjoyment and fun in the neighborhood and prevent isolation as we age. We invite all Blue Ridge residents to our March meeting. If you know a senior living in Blue Ridge who you think would like to attend, please invite them, since we have no way know from the directory!

who will talk and show a film about his work with Dr. Jane Goodall in East Africa studying families of wild chimpanzees. His book, Following Fifi
