With more houses being lit up and decorated than ever, the Greenbrier elves had the hardest time to date making their decisions; however they finally made it official and declared the winners of this year’s Holiday Lights contest. They are: Best Overall: 1724 Bahama Road, the Esposito residence’s take on a Winter Wonderland; Most Whimsical, 2116 Antigua, the Buckman residence’s festive presentation of lights, and Best Entryway, 3512 Trinidad, the Hamm’s residence with its elegant door.
Further, the elves gave a shoutout to the beautiful trees on Bahama; the Vettraino’s manger scene at 3637 Antilles Drive; and the lights at 3601 Montego Court, the Simone residence.
All GRI Member award winners will receive a $50 gift certificate to their favorite Hamburg restaurant. So tour the neighborhood and look for the signs in the winners’ yards. See if you agree with the Elves decisions and remember, next year could be the year for you to have a coveted winner sign in your front yard.
Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year to all from the Greenbrier Residents Board.!
GRI Members! Due to Covid-19, the approval of next year’s budget and election of GRI Officers will not be held at an in-person Business meeting. A ballot will be taped to every home in Greenbrier; however:
1) one must be a property owner for your vote to be recorded, only one vote per household
2) only a GRI member in good standing ($100 annual dues paid) for vote to be recorded
3) offer “yes” or write-in a candidate for your voting choice
4) fill in your name and address and sign
A ballot box will be placed at 2018 Bahama Road (The Urschels) from 9am to dark on Oct. 25 & 26 for your ballot to be dropped off.
According to our Bylaws, the response of one tenth (1/10) of GRI members in person or by proxy is necessary for action. All current Board Members are up for re-election; a space is provided for write-in candidates.
Approval is also required to pass next year’s budget. Details of this budget are on page 2 of this ballot! Treasurer John Schmidt is glad to answer any questions about the proposed budget: 299-5656

“Our normal Halloween traditions will change this year due to COVID-19,” said Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton. “Although we may not have some of our annual events, or be able to dig into a shared bowl of candy, we can still enjoy the holiday and trick-or-treat. We want our children and community to have fun, but be safe. You can collect pre-wrapped treats while in your favorite costume, but make sure to continue to maintain safe social distance, wear a protective face mask and keep gatherings to 10 or fewer people.”
