Events

GHA doesn't just provide a place to live, we offer a community environment in which residents actively participate in the decision making regarding quality of life issues. Management meets with residents on a monthly basis to hear concerns, listen to new ideas and plan future events. Annual programs run jointly by the Housing Authority and its resident civic association contribute to the sense of community and caring for others. Some of these programs are:

Family Day: An outdoor barbeque with food prepared by the residents. Entertainment provided by a Jazz band performing on the Town Showmobile, Children's rides, Indoor Bingo for Seniors and Field Competition consisting of various athletic events. Attended by current and past residents of the Housing Authority.

Beautification Day: All day landscaping of the grounds by residents. Flowers are planted by families, Seniors and children. Housing Authority staff assist with mulching and flower bed preparation. Additional residents hold a cook out and a resident DJ plays music to make the day fun for all.

Sr. Luncheon: A Thanksgiving Luncheon with the food prepared by the residents for the Senior Population. Music and a guest speaker make the afternoon an uplifting experience for our seniors.

Additional programs held by the Housing Authority include a weekly afterschool program consisting of a homework study hour followed by a varied indoor outdoor recreation program, Halloween and Holiday Parties. Future plans include programs geared specifically to single-parents, seniors, substance abusers, and victims of domestic violence, among others.
