We’re happy to report a sense of community is gaining momentum at SMVE. We held our first “Bring Your Own Beverage and Appetizer to Share” event on November 1st. This was the first time that we enjoyed the new policy of allowing alcoholic beverages in the clubhouse and ramada. People seemed to appreciate the ability to partake in an assortment of beverages. The weather was perfect for those that wanted to enjoy being outdoors in the ramada, and this also offered a quieter setting. The event helped mingling between established and recent homeowners, to the enjoyment of all. More than 50 homeowners attended.

Many homeowners told us that they enjoyed this new BYOB and Appetizer to share event, so we will try several variations over the next three months. These events will be casual (no RSVP needed) so please come join us as your schedule permits.

The next event will be on Tuesday, December 6th from 5 to 7 p.m. at the clubhouse and will be another “Bring Your Own Beverage (BYOB) and Appetizer” event. We look forward to another fun evening as we share friendly conversation and tasty appetizers. We hope to see familiar faces from last time as well as new faces too.

We are planning a BYOB/brunch for January 14 from 10 am-noon and BYOB/appetizer for February 7 from 5-7 pm [rescheduled]. The events will be announced on the SMVE website several weeks in advance and flyers will be posted at the mailboxes a week in advance. We look forward to seeing you and enjoying a fun and pleasant time together.
