Please practice social distancing, and bring a chair….. If weather is chilly or rainy, we will host the movie under the shelter, sides down, heaters on!

Please sign up each person attending by Wed, 9/23 on either the Craneridge Facebook post or the Nextdoor post, so we have a head count for pumpkins, pizza, and goodie bags!

All kids must be accompanied by an adult.

looking for Feedback and a volunteer to Chair the Social Committee

Due to COVID-19 and other significant changes, it seems that social activities and many other functions may need to be re-imagined within our community. To move forward, we created a form (link below) to collect your ideas, input, feedback and suggestions for the Social Committee. If you have kids, please ask them for their ideas or if you have a hobby, perhaps you may have time to share skills with small groups either socially distant or virtually? All ideas welcome!

Form Link: https://forms.gle/CxytP4DYC3thJLH66

In addition, the Craneridge BOD is searching for volunteers for the Social Committee, specifically for the Chair position. This can also be co-chaired if two members would like to share the responsibility.

Q: What the purpose of Social Committee?
A: The mission of the social committee is to bring the neighborhood together and is responsible for setting up the social events for the community. Planned events help to give Craneridge members a chance to get to know one another on a deeper level and serving on the committee is a perfect way to make a positive impact on the community.

Q: What are the Common Responsibilities of a Social Committee Chair? A: Attend and actively participate in all Social Committee events; Promote interest in all social events; Organize and facilitate event planning, with the assistance of the other members of the committee; Encourage resident participation and attendance at the Social Committee events via face-to-face interaction, social media, and other tools; and Prepare invitations and signs, to be displayed or distributed prior to an event.

If you own a pickup truck please consider driving it to help with hauling. We typically work until noon. We will have coffee and donuts available in the morning.

This is a great opportunity to meet some of your neighbors, have fun and help our community at the same time. Please bring a Mask. We will also practice social distancing (unless you are from the same household).
