In spite of the horrific weather conditions, the first annual Cherokee Valley HOA Easter Egg Hunt was a huge success. Unfortunately, weather conditions (heavy rain and 25mph winds) prohibited conducting the event outdoors at Beaver Lake as scheduled, so the event was moved indoors. John and Debbie Moore were gracious enough to allow the use of their home for the event. The kids, as well as the adults, all had a great time. The Easter Bunny attended the event and posed for photographs. There were games for the various age groups: pin the tail on the bunny, spoon/egg races, guess the number of jelly beans in the jar, etc. Not only did the game winners from the various age groups win prizes, but all participants were awarded smaller prizes in addition to the eggs collected on the hunt. There were wonderful refreshments and goodies to eat. Special thanks go to Sonny & Pat Mounicou, John & Debbie Moore, Debby Hrusa, and Susan Taylor for their contributions and involvement in the event.
On Saturday evening, September 8th 2012, Debby Hrusa and Pat Mounicou hosted a “Get To Know Your Neighbor Event” at Debby’s home on Thunder Ridge. As the first such even, it was a great success with 35 plus attending. Most attendees brought some type of delicious food to share and all had a great time. We want to sincerely thank Debby and Pat who walked the neighborhood hand-delivering the invitations for the event. Hopefully, with the start of our new web site, we will eventually establish an electronic contact list for our CVHOA members as well as a directory.
