Independence Day Activities Set

The Whitaker Downs Social Committee has planned plenty of activities for the July Fourth weekend, according to committee co-chairperson Jill Cunningham.

Movie at the Pool

“It all begins with a “Dive-In” movie on Friday, July 1, featuring Zootopia,“ Cunningham said. “The movie starts at dusk at the swimming pool.

“If you’d like to enjoy pizza beforehand, please be at the pool by 6:30 to place your order with committee members, who will order from Dominos ($10 per Pizza plus tax). Bring your own beverages, beach chairs and floats.”

Snow cones, popcorn and FUN will be provided.


The annual Patriotic Parade will be held Monday, July 4, beginning at 10 a.m.

“We're going to have our annual bike, golf cart, wheeled vehicle parade, starting at the pool parking lot,” according to Jennifer Avrett, a member of the Social Committee.

“The kids (and adults) work hard and get very excited about decorating their bikes and other vehicles,” Avrett said. “If you own a wheeled vehicle like a bicycle, scooter, golf cart, skate board, unicycle, classic car or skates, get your red, white and blue decorations together this weekend and meet at the pool by 9:45 a.m. Monday.”

Prizes will be awarded, so start thinking in RED WHITE and BLUE!

Tie-Dye at the Pool

Bring your own white T-shirt (preferably100% cotton) to customize as you wish. All ages of creativity are welcome, beginning at 11:30 a.m.

All American Hotdog Buffet

Bring your own beverages and a favorite picnic side dish to share from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m.

Pool Gate Key Fobs Available

If you need new or spare key fobs (those electronic badges that unlock the swimming pool gates), contact Mark Thornton, member of the Whitaker Downs HOA board of directors and Pool Committee volunteer.

Each household is provided one key fob free of charge. HOA members can obtain replacements or extras for $20 each. Note: If you sell your home, please give your key fob to the new owners.

WD Golf Club Seeks Members

The Whitaker Downs Golf club is seeking new players to join its weekly outing, according to club chairman Larry Reinhardt.

“Enthusiasm and interest are far more important than talent.” Reinhardt said. “We have many different skill levels in the group and would love to have more neighbors participate.”

The club plays weekly, usually on Wednesdays or Thursdays, at different courses in the Hoschton area. Anyone interested in joining should send an e-mail to larry.reinhardt.jr@gmail.com.
