Santa at the Clubhouse

Santa will be on site at the clubhouse from 3:30-5:00 on Sunday, December 17th.

We’ll begin set up at 2:00, and clean up will commence at 5:00. (Of course we’ll be cleaning up as much as we can along the way!)

We are looking for volunteers to help with providing cookies/treats, set up, ‘during the event’ assistance (for craft assistance, and Santa help), and clean up. Please sign up below if you can help with anything!!! Helpful teenagers are welcome, and we would be glad to sign any forms needed for verification of volunteer hours!

Please note: The pool restrooms will be available for use, but the clubhouse will not be open. This is not an HOA-sanctioned event. In case of inclement weather, the hayride will be cancelled.

2017 Balcones Woods Easter Egg Hunt

Our annual Balcones Woods Neighborhood Easter Egg Hunt will be Saturday April 8th at 10:30 AM. The Easter Bunny will be there for photos!

We will have 4 different areas for hunting, separated by age range:

  •  0-2 years
  • 3-4 years
  • 5-6 years
  • 7-8 years

The little ones (0-2 years) will be hunting for empty plastic eggs and little containers of bubbles, the rest of the areas will have eggs filled with candy.  The prize table is filled with trinkets; There will be many eggs filled with coupons for items at the prize table. (BW philosophy: If a child wants to participate, they are not too old! Our 7-8 age range is our smallest group, so your 9 or 10 year old is welcome to hunt if they’d like to.)

Come to the commons area a bit early to gather and visit with neighbors, and the hunt will start PROMPTLY at 10:30!  If your family hasn’t participated before, know that the hunt will be over quickly, so don’t be late.  Also, if anyone wants to help with set up (it’s quick work and teens/pre-teens are welcome) – we will plan to be at the commons area at 9:15 to get everything out and ready.
