By Tim Louque, Activities Committee
The yearly Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner is our thank you to our neighborhood’s generous volunteers. These Timbergrove residents gave their time for many of the activities and programs that we all look forward to and have come to count on.
In attendance at the dinner were many of the volunteers from our Security Committee, our Block Captains, TMCC sponsored events, the neighborhood Beautification Committee, Environmental Affairs volunteers, the various committee chairmen, committee members along with our Civic Club Board of directors and the Citizens on Patrol program. If you think about it, without them, none of our neighborhood events and activities would not be possible.
Once again, this year’s dinner was held at Spaghetti Western – The Sequel on 18th Street on Sunday, September 30, 2018. The honorees in attendance had their choice of one of four entrees along with bread sticks, choice of salad, and dessert along with their favorite soda or iced tea.
Door prizes were awarded – bottles of wine, neighborhood restaurant gift cards – Hughie’s and Spaghetti Western and neighborhood retail store gift cards – Another Place in Time and Lucy’s Boutique.
This year’s centerpieces were “runners” arranged down the center of each table made from parchment Autumn leaves with an assortment of adorable mini gourds. These were given to everyone in attendance so that no one went home empty handed.
This year’s Volunteer Dinner was the largest we have ever had with 52 people in attendance. There was great conversation, new friendships created, visits with longtime friends and trading “war stories.” Really, just catching up with each other about current neighborhood news and all of the changes since last year is what this fantastic yearly event is all about.
Would you please volunteer? We need you, really. Incredibly, volunteers are in short supply these days and we always have a real need for volunteer help. There are numerous ways you can help us keep Timbergrove Manor a GREAT place to live! Refer to this issue of The Timbergram and review the committees section with names of committees, committee chairmen and e-mail addresses. Doesn’t it seem to you like you’d fit in great somewhere?
