2009 BVIA BBQ -

We had a wonderful turn out at the BVIA BBQ in September! People brought so much food, that we required two long tables (one just for deserts!) to hold the entire spread. Needless to say, nobody went away hungry! It was a gorgeous day for grilling- as you can see in the picture! Many children attended and enjoyed playing together in the swimming pool! Many people lingered to visit, long after the "scheduled" time period!

Thanks to United Continental for letting us use the inside air conditioned area! And thanks to Neil Roe for lending us some of Pepper's catering supplies and "setting us up" properly! Finally, thanks to everyone who came! It was a great success and we will definitely have more of these types of "get togethers" in the future!

Our next BBQ will be August 15th from 4:30-6:30pm at the pool area.


Communtiy Pool

Residents of Buena Vida, as well as residents of Roswell who are BVIA members, may use the community pool! The pool is generally open from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Pool keys are available from our secretary Charlotte Baumann. There is a one time non-refundable fee of $10.00. 

Community Services

Clean-up Day: October 2008

Once a year, the community of BVIA holds an annual clean-up day.  We coincide this day with the city of Roswell, as they supply the necessary materials to make this easy and pleasant. They provide gloves, plastic bags, and even T-shirts. The president of BVIA supplies water.

The city generally picks up the trash, but last year they asked people to take it to a place in town where they gave a prize to the people bringing in the most trash. We were not lucky enough to win the prize. (Because we are so neat!)

The following people donated their time to this cause: Shirl Rempe, Carl Rempe, Pamela Gervias, Rick Rittenhouse, Anna Pozzi, Vicki Barnett, Nanci Morley, Kelsey and Lana Morley, Al Bolkovac, Sylvia Bolkovac, Tim Boggan, Brian Beeles, Darah Beeles, Neil Roe, Charlotte Baumann, Art Baumann, and Pat Clarke.

The weather was perfect. Besides enjoying each other’s company, we had fun in the sun. We are grateful to all who participated.

Our next clean-up day will be in the spring of 2010!
