Winners of Holiday Lights Contest

This important message, recorded on Thursday, Dec. 29th is from  the Chief Neighborhood elf and his anonymous crew who judged this year’s Holiday Lights winners. They are:

Best Overall: The Williams Family at 1788 Bahama Road.

Most Whimsical: The Brooks Family at 2242 Bahama Road.

Best Entryway: The Marrs Family at 2049 Bahama Road.

Chief Elf noted that these triumphant neighbors have never won before, even though there were more lighted properties than ever this year.  The Holiday Spirit was certainly alive and well in Greenbrier, and the elves wanted a shout out to the following families for their super showing: The Pogrostskys on Eleuthera; the Ottos on Jamaica; and the GRI Decorating Committee for this year’s front entry with its arrangement of snowmen and deer.  As always, the elves appreciated the colorful, gorgeous tree in the Wirth/Wardrop sideyard; and the many other festive figures – the angels, penguins and endearing inflatables dotting our neighborhood.

Again, we elves encourage all our neighbors to deck their halls in 2023 to make our neighborhood the cheefulest, joyfulest and brightest community in Fayette County.  Till next year, this is the Chief Elf, signing off.

2022 Holiday Lights Contest

 

 

 

 

 

Every December since 2004, your GRI Board has held a holiday light contest for residents. The competition has three winner categories:
BEST OVERALL ; BEST DOOR or ENTRYWAY; BEST WHIMSICAL (ELVES CHOICE).
The judging this year- by an anonymous group who call themselves the Elf Squad – will take place Wednesday evening, December 21st after 11pm. The winners will be announced on our voice mail, on our website, gb-ra.com and our Greenbrier Facebook page. All residents are eligible to win: only GRI members will receive a gift certificate to their favorite restaurant in Hamburg – not to mention an awesome sign designating the home of the prizewinner-placed in the front yard. The elves are very excited about this year’s contest and wish to urge everyone to get busy and light up! Happy Holidays!

On the Table Sign Ups

The Greenbrier Neighborhood is a member of the Fayette County Neighborhood Association (FCNC) which advocates for neighborhood networking to better understand how our local government works and how development proposals may affect a neighborhood’s unique character. The FCNC offers public workshops, speakers, and educational meetings that support and preserve successful neighborhoods.  On the Table is an important element seeking public input into the future growth of our county.  Please see the info and meeting times below should you be interested in following up on one of these sessions. Thank you!

Dallas Taylor

I started at pump stations in 1993 as a mechanic.

Few years later became the Electrician after receiving my license, worked at that position for about 10 years.

Was promoted to supervisor, worked that for around another ten years.

Became the Program manager a little over a year ago.

LFUCG calculates time in 30 day months so that puts me right at 30 years, all at Pump Stations.

I’ve spent a lot of time in your neighborhoodJ

Dues Drive Nears Target

Our Dues Drive is almost over and we are 9 neighbors short of our target goal of 74% paid members. If you haven’t yet paid this year’s Dues – still at $100.00 – there’s time! Use paypal or write a check, send it or drop it off to our Treasurer, John Schmidt at 3556 Antilles Dr. That’s less than $9.00 per month to support the GRI Board in its many activities on behalf of our neighborhood! Please join your neighbors in helping us reach our goal!

Also, we are working on the new Directory which promises to be bigger and better than ever. We think ALL our property owners will find the information contained in it both useful and easy to find. Watch for it later this month! Thank you!
