The following is a list of the events currently sponsored by the Colberry Hills Neighborhood Association. Each event is subject to the ability to find a host for the event and available finances. If you are interested creating a new event or club for the neighborhood (bridge, pinochle, euchre, golf league, bowling, Santa Visits and luminaries existed in the past) or in helping organize any of the existing annual events, contact the Entertainment chairperson.
Easter Egg Hunt
Eggs hidden for the kids, donuts and coffee for the adults.
On the Saturday before Fathers’ Day in June, the Subdivision holds a subdivision garage sale. The Association publicizes the event.
4th of July Parade
Get out the red, white and blue and decorate your stroller! Deck out your bike! Dress up you dog (and your grandma!!) Drive your sports car or your junk heap! If you can’t walk it, come out and watch it! The parade travels through the neighborhood and is usually preceded by a Bloomfield Township Fire Truck. At the end of the Parade, kids can explore the truck and enjoy popsicles.
Block Party / End of Summer
This event has become a fun-filled afternoon since its inception in the summer of 1993. Colberry Hills provides meats and drinks for the cook-out and attendees bring side dishes. Family games, like water balloon toss, tug-o-war and relay races are the focus of the afternoon. Bring a comfortable lawn chair and plan on relaxing and socializing. It’s a time to meet our new neighbors and visit with established neighbors. A nice cap-off to the end of each summer!
This is not just for kids. Parents and Grandparents are welcome! It is held on Halloween night in someone’s garage. Hot dogs, cider and donuts are usually served. Some hosts have games, carved pumpkin contest and a costume parade/contest. It is a fun beginning to Halloween night and the kids usually take off together from the party for trick or treating.
The Holiday Social
The social is usually held in early December, a time to get in touch just before the holidays when life gets too hectic. Someone generously volunteers to host it in his or her home. The rest of us bring our favorite foods to share. Drinks are provided. It is another opportunity for our new comers to meet their new neighbors.
