VOWS 7th Annual Bunny Hop 5K & 1-Mile Fun Run – March 5th – Registration Now Open

VOWS 7th Annual Bunny Hop 5k & 1-mile Fun Run and Egg Hunts are a hop away. The event will be held at Bray Birch Park on Saturday 3/5. Fun will begin with the first Run at 9 a.m. with bounce houses, music, petting zoo, vendor booths, and egg hunts.

The egg hunts will be in four age groups starting every 15 minutes at 11 a.m., with an additional Quiet Egg Hunt station. The Quiet Egg Hunt is open to every child but exclusive to children that will not be participating in the Ready-Set-Go! style egg hunts.

We are fortunate to have Kevin Dunn with Remax’s Team Dunn stepping up as a major sponsor of the 5k and 1-mile fun run race management, which means a larger donation will be going to the runs’ charity recipient, The Community Storehouse.

Run, walk, or push your baby stroller around the 1-mile Fun Run and/or the 5k. The race will be chip-timed. Winners will be awarded trophies in six age groups. Don’t forget to sign up for the run early for the discount, bunnyhop.athlete360.com.

VOWS residents can register for the free egg hunt at http://tinyurl.com/vows-egg-hunt. Registration is requested to help the events committee with planning the fun! Volunteers can sign up by emailing events.vows@gmail.com.

VOWS Events Committee is looking for a bunny drawing to go on the front of our Bunny Hop race t-shirts. Please submit your drawing by 8 p.m. on Sunday, February 7th to events.vows@gmail.com, and you will receive a confirmation response that your drawing was received from the events chair.

Halloween Night – This Saturday, October 31st

Dear VOWS Residents,

Halloween will fall on Saturday this year, and we expect the trick-or-treaters to be out and about that evening.

Whether you will be walking or driving on Halloween night, the Homeowners Association would like to remind VOWS families to be overly cautious, and aware of the increased pedestrian activity on our neighborhood streets, and to take the necessary safety precautions.

Among these precautions, we urge families to take when it comes time to go trick-or-treating include wearing proper fitting – brightly colored costumes, carrying flashlights or glow sticks for increased visibility, watching, for traffic when crossing the street, and making sure there is adult supervision while the children are walking through the neighborhood.

Parents should know what routes their children plan to take while trick-or-treating.

Trick-or-treaters should be aware of their surroundings and only travel on well-lit streets. If you must cross the street, only do so at well-lit corners or designated crosswalk areas.

Once your children return home, parents should always check the treats before allowing them to have any.

Be selective in your sorting and throw away any items that area open, missing wrappers, or have potentially been tampered with.

Residents should have their front porch well lit if they want to have trick-or-treating, or keep the porch light off if they don’t.

Halloween decorations should be brought in at the end of the night, especially pumpkins, as they can be used for vandalism.

As always, Residents area encouraged to lock their vehicles and remove or hide any valuable items.

It is preferable to park in the garage first, then the driveway, and only as a last resort on the street.

From the entire FirstService Residential Team, we hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Halloween night this year.
