For over 20 years the GardenVillage Community Association "GVCA" has hosted an annaul Christmas program that gives free new toys to the families of the GardenVillage Townhomes & Apartments Community. The program has expand over the years and included a parade with Marching Bands and a float that transported Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus through the community. Just last year the association was able to get a horse and buggy to transport Mr. & Mrs. Santa Claus. The parade would end at the community center where a Santa house was built for Santa to hand out toys to the children. The children and their parents could take a picture with Santa and then receive a toy from Mrs. Santa Claus and continue to enjoy the festivities with warm apple cidar or hot choclate and light refreshments. A movie of How The Grinch Stole Christmas would be playing while everyone would be waiting to see Santa. This is the end of the year event that GVCA host to bring Christmas joy to the residents of the GardenVillage Townhomes & Apartments Community.
