As I look back on 2019 as Membership Chair, I reflect on how
blessed I am to be a part of this wonderful community. The friends I
have made, the new and interesting people I have met, the
exposure to how much generosity and kindness exists among
neighbors is humbling.
In 2019 we welcomed 16 (!!) new individuals and families to our
neighborhood. I hope you have had the opportunity to reach out and
give them a warm welcome. In addition, we have had three families move within Blue Ridge to new homes and one return to the neighborhood following a hiatus. This truly is a testament to how strong
and lasting the bonds are in this neighborhood.
In November and December, I would like to give a warm welcome to the following new residents:
Betty Westfall on Greenbriar
Jessica and David Matlock on Woodbine
Gurdeep and Aerin Sembhi on Blue Ridge Drive
I’d like to recommend a new year’s resolution, if I may… Get to know some new neighbors in this wonderful community. Share some laughs, give a helping hand, and maybe take advantage of some Blue Ridge amenities you have not yet tried (a sunset walk on the beach, pickleball at Woodbine Park,
a visit with our Blue Ridge Manager, Michelle at the clubhouse, a morning swim at the pool, or simply a stroll through the streets looking at all the holidaylights…).
May you have a safe and happy holiday season and a happy 2020!
