Planned activities are a great way for Circle D members to get involved with the community. Members can volunteer their time, donate items or just show up and get to know their neighbors.
Welcome Committee's Holly Jolly Social Hour
The Welcome Committee hosted a successful first annual Circle D Neighborhood Holly Jolly Social Hour on Saturday December 2, 2023, at the CDCA Park Pavilion.
Over twenty neighbors attended, some dawning their best Holiday Sweaters. Christmas music
played while neighbors mingled, and children enjoyed the perfect outdoor weather. Crockpots
full of homemade hot coco and apple cider were provided along with an oversized charcuterie
board of meat, cheeses, crackers, and fruit. There were snickerdoodles, pumpkin rolls, and
green frosted cookies decorated like Christmas trees.
It was a wonderful time catching up with old friends and meeting new ones!
We are planning our annual Spring Meet and Greet sometime in April 2024.
Jessica Haggerty - Welcome Committee Chair
Another Clean Sweep event was held on Saturday, November 4, 2023 from 8 am until full at the Circle D Community Park. The four dumpsters, provided by the county at no cost to the Association, were full by 11:30. Another Clean Sweep will be scheduled for late spring.
Volunteers helped those who were unable to remove junk from their property and bring it to the Clean Sweep. Thanks to Clara Beckett, County Commissioner, for providing the dumpsters.
A huge THANK YOU to our volunteers for helping members during the clean sweep!!!
