LIFE & LAUGHTER RETURN TO THE VCP GROUNDS
Hundreds Turn Out for the "Run for the Village" 5K & Fun Run
From all of us at the Village Club and Preserve, we would like to extend our sincerest thanks to all who participated in our Inaugural "Run for the Village" 5K and Fun Run on November 17! We hope you and your loved ones made lasting memories on the beautiful (and crisp) Saturday morning of our event. We had 237 registered runners/walkers and were overjoyed to see so many new friends enjoying the festivities.

Participation in the run, along with the support of our valued sponsors , helped raise over $16,000, which will be used to build a perimeter fitness trail on the property

OUR SHIP HAS COME IN
You read that right…the ship carrying our containers with fencing material came into the Port of Miami on Thanksgiving Day (which gave us a lot to be thankful for)! The fencing material was carefully specified months ago, produced to our order, then packed in containers to make to trip to our doorstep. On November 28, a crane was on-site at the VCP to offload the containers to where they will sit through construction. Today, the last utilities were marked and our fence contractor, BSL Construction, is slated to begin installation next week.

Building Update:
The Grace Pavilion is in fabrication with RCP Shelters and Watauga Construction will be our general contractor for the installation.

After months of meeting with potential general contractors and collecting bids, we are happy to announce that John Rizzotto GC will be managing construction of our community building. Final elements of our permitting package are being completed next week as we prepare to submit and get rolling on the project.

Inspirational Gifts
A big thank you to our Friends of the Village who have donated items and materials over the last several months. A few of the gifts, listed below for inspiration:

Elliptical machines, stationary bike, and treadmill: Committed by supporters who want to support our mission in the area of fitness. Have a piece of exercise equipment still in good shape that could use a new home? Contact us and let us know.  

2,500+ sq/ft of pavers: Given by a family renovating their pool deck area. The pavers were in great shape and will be used around the community building. A donation like this can save us thousands!

Outdoor grill, pool chaise lounges, and event shade tents: Donated to the VCP by individuals who saw them being prepared to be discarded/given away by their places of work. Many times, “giveaways” such as these still have much life in them. These gifts will be put to good use on our grounds!

Construction equipment : A new resident and owner of construction company will be helping by donating their time and usage of equipment for grading, hauling fill, and construction of the fitness trail. We are grateful for their willingness to use the resources they have and be involved in our project!

Other items to consider: Building supplies, tables, chairs, benches, landscaping supplies (or plant/tree material), sports equipment, etc. Have an item you think might be useful? Give us a quick call and run it by us...we'd love to hear from you.
