GCA New Year’s Eve Party – A New York State of Mind!

Horton Community Center - December 31 2019 

Ring in 2020 with your Grapeview Community Association friends on Tuesday, December 31.  No need to stress about staying up until midnight as we are changing up the GCA’s annual New Year's Eve party with a new time!

It will take place from 6:30pm to 10:30pm at the Horton Community Center.  We’ll toast the New Year at 9pm as the ball drops in New York and finish the evening with continued game playing, music, dancing and more socializing before cleaning up and heading home.  New This Year:   Get souvenir photos of the night in a classic photo booth!   

The party is free and open to all GCA members and their guests. Dress is casual. GCA provides ice, cups, napkins, paper plates, and plastic ware.

Attendees should bring hors d'oeuvres to share, beverage of choice, and your favorite games: Mexican Train, puzzles, cards, etc. Please provide serving utensils and label your dish, especially for common allergens of wheat, nuts, soy and dairy.    

Set-up takes place at 11:00 AM at the Horton Community Center on the day of the event and cleanup immediately follows. If you are interested in helping or have any ideas to add to the enjoyment, please contact coordinators Leslie or Mike Blaisdell at 253-226-7693 or via email at Email Us!

"Prepare in a Year"

REMEMBER:  One hour of "Disaster Preparedness Activity" each month will help you be ready for disasters -  wherever they occur and whatever they are.

One of GCA's goals for 2019 is to help our members to "Prepare in a Year".  As with any goal, preparing for a disaster can seem like a monumental task.  The goal is to be easy and as inexpensive as possible.  Our November Focus is "Sheltering". 

Sheltering may be necessary in a natural or man-made disaster.  Many times it means to take immediate shelter where you are—at home, work, or school. When "sheltering-in-place", the facility or structure where you are located will provide protection from elements outside (debris, chemical release, etc.). A multitude of hazards can require sheltering in place, but in general, sheltering-in-place is appropriate when conditions outside are unsafe and a higher degree of protection is available inside.

Follow the link to our November Focus which will give you valuable safety tips on planning for Sheltering-in-place, but also Sheltering for extended stay and mass care situations - Check it out!
