Membership Update – May 2018
Greetings to our amazing Blue Ridge Community. Hope you are out enjoying some warmer weather as all those flowers (and neighbors!) start emerging from winter hiding…
As Membership Chair, I have been busy answering questions to perspective buyers as the spring real estate market starts picking up. As of now, I don’t have any new families to welcome, but stay tuned…
In regard to Blue Ridge events, I have a couple exciting announcements.
First, big thank you to Julie Keegan for organizing our annual Easter Egg Hunt! I was not in attendance but I understand it was another wonderful success, with lots of adorable kids plowing through a sea of Easter eggs in record time!
Next, I’d like to welcome Megan Thomas
as our new Event’s Coordinator! She has graciously stepped up to help manage the various community events which keep us connected with our friends and neighbors. As she embarks on this task, please welcome her and don’t hesitate to let her (or me!) know if you would like to volunteer for any of the events throughout the year – firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please join me in thanking Megan!!
This leads me to another big thank you – to Amanda and Ryan O’Rourke for stepping up to lead the Annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic. This is a herculean effort in which all of you are welcome to step in and help. More information will follow requesting volunteers and providing info. Thank you, Amanda and Ryan!
Finally, we are still in need of one or two volunteers to lead the Summer Pool Party! This is an incredibly festive and fun adults-only party that occurs the last weekend in July. However, this event will not take place if someone does not step up to manage the event. It’s been orchestrated for years so it’s a pretty easy effort to plan. Like “they” say, it practically runs itself… We just need that lucky volunteer! Please email Megan if interested.
Upcoming events to put on your calendar:
- July 4th Parade and Picnic – July 4th
- Summer Luau or Fiesta at the pool – July 28 (This event will NOT happen unless we get a volunteer to chair this event ASAP!!!)
- Oktoberfest – September 28
- New Resident Social – date TBD
