Annual General Membership Meeting

Each Spring, one of our homeowners graciously opens their doors for the Annual Membership Meeting and Reception where awards are given to those who have recently restored or renovated their homes making a significant impact on the immediate neighborhood. New board members are elected and updates on recent activities are shared.  Our highest Award called the Terry-Parkerson Award is often presented to an individual or group who has followed in the footsteps of the Association’s founders to preserve, enhance and protect the neighborhood through their stewardship over an extended period of time.

This event is open to current GDA members only.  Invitations will be sent to all current members of the Association.

Jazz and Juleps

Back by popular demand, this year’s Southern Supper on the Lawn will be held at the beautiful home on of Gregor Fox and Camille Patti on First Street on Sunday, April 23.  It’s the perfect setting for a relaxing evening with neighbors to enjoy a casual dinner in the garden, complete with music by the Don Vappie Creole Jazz Trio and refreshing Mint Juleps.

Summer Splash

Our summer swim and grill parties at Camp Pleasant have always been great successes with lots of future leaders in swim goggles splashing around. It is fun to see so many young families getting to know each other. A date for this event has not yet been set.
