Hope Valley Night of Lights

Hope Valley Night of Lights

In the past year Hope Valley Garden Club (HVGC) wanted to increase neighborhood beautification and general good will.  The discussion came about to create a luminary program.

HVGC quickly realized that with a neighborhood of over 900 homes help was needed to execute the program.  HVGC approached the Hope Valley Neighborhood Association to help create awareness about the event and help facilitate the sale of the luminary kits.  In an effort  for the event to truly be a community event we also enlisted the help of Town & Country Garden Club, another neighborhood garden club.  Hope Valley Garden Club (HVGC) initiated, created and executed the event with the help of these other organizations.

HVGC created a flyer that was used in an neighborhood association email as well as a mailing that sold over 7,780 luminaries!   The event took place on December 11, 2011.  All who participated lit their luminaries at 5 pm that evening in an effort of community good will.  Neighbors walked the neighborhood streets and enjoyed the scenery and their community.

All of the Hope Valley Garden Club members participated in the event by purchasing, packing and distributing the luminaries.  Proceeds from the Night of Lights went to Habitat for Humanity.
