Christmas at Rivermoore Park in Suwanee
Several volunteers decorated Rivermoore beginning the week-end before Thanksgiving. It was completed for the most part by the second week of December. Many homeowners had their own personal decorations which rivaled some commercial lighting. The holidays are a beautiful time all over Suwanee and especially in #Rivemoore Park.
Santa came to visit the youngsters of the community on December 1 from 2-5 and the participation was wonderful. Many young residents told Santa all about their anticipation of his upcoming visit on Christmas Eve.
The neighborhood designated one corner near the entrance to the community as the Children's Corner. There is a tree there that the children were encouraged to decorate. They could make their ornaments or just bring one they had bought. We had a tree decorating party with Christmas cookies and juice. Each of the helpers got an official sticker that said they were "Official Tree Decorator". This corner will be designated as the Children's area on all major holidays for anytime we decorate the community.
Rivermoore Park has always been a community that is abundant with small town ambiance and this season is the epitome of that. On Christmas Eve late afternoon, our neighbor from down the street came to our door delivering Christmas goodies. Then a few minutes later, the doorbell rang again and we went to the door to find a group of carolers singing Christmas carols for us. They also had Christmas goodies. How long has it been since "carolers" have come to your door.
Great Christmas - all we needed was SNOW.
