Brambleton's Recycle Bank Program is Outstanding

Brambleton is doing an outstanding job recycling. In the first few months, Brambleton’s household recycling rate has increased from an average of 9 lbs per household to 16 lbs.

Representatives from RecycleBank were also amazed that 41% of the Brambleton owners registered during the first week of the program. Typical registration for other communities has been only around 30%. Keep up the good work Brambleton!!

Residents Visit With Santa and Rudolph

Holiday cheer filled the Community Center on Sunday, December 6th as Santa and Rudolph greeted residents at the Holiday Open House. Santa also brought a few of his elves from the North Pole who helped with face painting and balloon making.

Children eagerly waited for a chance to visit with Santa on his sleigh, as parents took the opportunity to snap photos. As the elves kept themselves busy, Rudolph made his way around the Community Center, giving out hugs. He was quite the crowd pleaser, and quickly gave comfort to the little ones who weren’t quite ready for a meeting with Santa.

Thank you to the Activities Committee members who helped with the holiday festivities: Event Chair, Lori Fetterman, Committee Co-Chair Nikki McMahon and Karen Martin. And a very special thanks to Donna Cohen, for volunteering her time as Rudolph!
