Hidden Valley Civic Club
What the Civic Committee is all about
I’m often asked what it is that the Civic Committee does. Although we are often referred to as a “club”, we are actually a committee that the POA founders wrote into the bylaws of HVL. According to the bylaws, all HVL property owners are automatically a member of the Civic Committee. Our main purpose is to plan activities for Hidden Valley and to raise money to put back into our community.
Here is a list of events that we have sponsored throughout the year in the past…
Jan: Martin Luther King Jr. Food drive
Feb: Mardi gras Celebration
March: Spring fling
April: Keep America Beautiful
July: July 4th festivities at the HVL Beach
Sept: Family Fall Fest and Chili Cook-off
Oct: Haunted Woods and Halloween walk
Monthly: Card nights in the fall and winter
We also have done Adult and Family Swim Parties as well as Family Camp Outs. We have also occasionally planned trips outside of HVL to places like Keeneland for horse racing. We also sponsor the HVL Garage sale twice a year.
With the money that we have raised from these events, we have purchased the following:
- Deliberators for the HVL Deputy vehicles
- Both shelters at the beach
- Swing set for the pool
- Mulched the park at Matterhorn’s Paradise lake
- Toilets for the beach bathrooms
- Money to the HVL Swim Team for new equipment
- Major contributor to the HVL Scholarship fund
- Contributor to the HVL Fitness Center
- New benches throughout the valley
- New grills at beach
We are always looking for more volunteers to help out. Please come to the next meeting on September 29th or call Elizabeth Isom at 513-289-5720 to get more information.
