The Welcome Team calls on those new to Briar Village, by request. If you are new to the neighborhood and would like to be visited, please contact our management company, Graham and tell them you want to be visited by our Welcome Team.
The Welcome Team has a very informative Welcome packet for you and can answer your questions about living in BV.
Homes in Briar Village were first occupied in the late 1960's. Since that time several events have become traditions for our community. These include:
4th of July Parade - usually led by a real Fire Truck! Our children decorate their bikes, wagons, scooters, themselves and they and their parents march a short parade route through the "Village."
Easter Egg Hunt - held on the grounds near the Clubhouse, it is organized by the Mom's Club and is fun for all ages.
Spring Fling - an event hosted by the Briar Village swim team in April. The event is an incredibly fun opportunity for the families of BV to get together and swim, play, and mingle. The swim team sells concessions to help raise money for the upcoming season and this is an excellent time for swimmers to join the swim team as well.
Halloween Party – usually held the weekend before Halloween, this event is great fun for the community children. In past years there were bounce houses, face painting, costume parties and more! In 2019 there was even a Chili Cook-Off.
The Tennis Courts are open year-round. You must have an access card to use this amenity.
The pool is open from April 1st through the Friday before the week of Halloween from 7:00am-8:30pm and is closed on Monday for maintenance. An access card is also required to use this amenity, along with turning in a signed waiver. Please see the pool page for more information.
The Clubhouse is used for community meetings such as the monthly Community Association Meetings and Garden Club Meetings; it has been used for scouting meetings, play groups and slumber parties too! It is available for rent to BV residents for private meetings, receptions and parties. It is equipped with a full kitchen, restrooms, lounge furniture and tables and chairs; adequate parking is also available. Of course, there are some limitations, but when decorated for a special event, it is very attractive. The rent is nominal and there is a security deposit that is refundable after the post-event inspection verifies that things were left ship-shape. Please see the Clubhouse Reservation page for more information.
All BV children, ages 4 through 18 years, who know how to swim, are welcome to participate. We also offer a learn to swim program for the little ones just starting out so that future flyers can be made! Practices start in May each year and Swim Meets with nearby communities are scheduled for late May and June. Children are awarded ribbons and trophies for participation, friends are made and so are lifelong memories. "Swim Team" has been an important activity for BV children (and parent volunteers) for over 3 decades. More about swim team can be found at briarflyers.swimtopia.com.
Each month (Mar - Dec) a home is selected for this honor based on the merits of good maintenance, design, seasonal color and an overall appearance that supports the standards set for our community by our Deed Restrictions. Many homes are given Honorable Mention each month too. In December, YOTM selections are based on Holiday Decorations. See the Yard of the Month page for photographs of winners and holiday decorations.
The BV Newsletter is published monthly (except in January) and is sent via 4th class mail to every home in Briar Village. Watch for it in your mailbox the first week of each month. If you do not receive your Newsletter in a timely manner, please contact the Board Director for the Newsletter. See the Board of Directors section of this website for the contact information.
Our Newsletter is a great source for information about community news, events and our support services, such as security and garbage pick up. BV residents are encouraged to contribute articles (see the Newsletter for requirements) or short editorials of a suitable nature. Paid advertising from a wide range of business services is invited. See the Newsletter page for past issues.
Our moms club is an unorganized group of over 100 moms from BV that share stories, tips and tricks, friendships, and babysitters! Most of the communication is done through the Facebook group We try to get together as much as possible. The moms group is always looking for a few type A moms to organize our get-togethers. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Kelly Foster at Kelly@alanandkellyfoster.com or by text at 713-515-6131.
