2019 Independence Day Celebrations

There are two special reasons tor freedom lovers to celebrate July 4th this year – and we’re not even talking about the US Declaration of Independence –  which enshrined in a Bill of Rights religious freedom, freedom of speech, press freedom, and the right to peaceably assemble.

First is the neighborhood breakfast/brunch at the home of Jennifer and Ben Allen, 3785 Jamaica Court.  Starting at 10am, neighbors are invited to bring a dish to share and a chair while kids enjoy playing on inflatables. No rain date is planned.

Second is the annual Greenbrier parade, hosted by parade meister extraordinaire Chris Thiel.  Kids are encouraged to bring decorated bikes. golf carts, and scooters to the Antigua Circle around 3.30pm.   Fire engine #17 will arrive at 4pm to lead the way around Bahama to the Clubhouse, where paradegoers can enjoy snocones, and kids will be awarded prizes in several categories.

Here’s to a Happy 4th!

Thank You!

As this year’s Greenbrier Dues Appeal wraps up, the GB Board is happy to announce that once again 170 neighbors voluntarily contributed to our operating fund. That means 70% of GB residents (236 properties according to Fayette County PVA Search site: Greenbrier Estates) will allow the Board to undertake major projects such as the new Directory, Spring planting and updated Security Cameras that will benefit ALL residents.

Your GB Board is grateful for the participation of our dues-paying neighbors, and we work hard to ensure your dues go to make our neighborhood one of Fayette County’s best. Thank you!
