Beech Mountain Lakes

PERKS COMMITTEE

The Perks Committee in collaboration with Volunteer Committee and Recreation Department would like to thank everyone for making our inaugural event successful.

The goal of the Perks Committee is to organize and sponsor events for residents of Beech Mountain Lakes to help foster a social togetherness through community events for all ages. With an approximate attendance of 1100 people, the family fun event accomplished our goal and we are looking forward to bringing more events to highlight our community and its values. Response from the residents has been overwhelmingly positive and many are asking us when our next event will be. The feedback from the vendors was equally impressive and many are already requesting to get on the list for next year’s festival or for another event.

The Fall Festival not only fostered community togetherness; it also highlighted our community’s First Responders with representatives from Valley EMS, Valley Regional Fire Department and the Pennsylvania State Police in attendance. Each of these organizations were excited about being included and are looking forward to joining us in future events.

The event also supported the Valley Food Bank, with residents offering a non-perishable food item in exchange for five tricky tray tickets. The Valley Food Bank was excited and thankful that we included this as part of our festival.

We would also like to recognize the following volunteers who worked countless hours bringing all the pieces together.
