    2022 Fall Festival is right around the corner!

    Happy Labor Day Cedar Creek Neighbors! As fall draws nearer and calendars start to fill up, please consider adding Cedar Creek’s Fall Festival to your list of family-friendly fun. We will have live music, food, crafts, games, and prizes. We will also be hosting a plant sale on Cedar Creek Court, as well as collecting canned goods for the Athens Area Emergency Food Bank. Additionally, we are looking for neighbors who would like to volunteer to bring baked goods to sell and/or those who would like to volunteer to work the event. Please see this sign up link for more information: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E094EAAA92EA5FB6-ccca. You can also contact Heather Sitler at heathersitler@gmail.com for more information about the bake sale or volunteering.

    2023 Board Members NEEDED!

    The Cedar Creek Civic Association (CCCA, a member-funded non-profit civic organization) is the oldest continuously active civic association in Athens. The CCCA supports the 657 households in the Cedar Creek Subdivision, promoting and protecting the Community’s great quality of life by looking after the Community’s entrances, green spaces, roads, and neighborhood watch.

    The CCCA is managed through its Board. The CCCA Board is currently looking to fill a number of critical leadership positions, as of February 28, 2022. Board members are Cedar Creek residents who volunteer their time and talents to help keep the Cedar Creek subdivision a great place to live. Serving on the Board or on one of the Board’s committees does not require a lot of your time, typically 2 hours a month to attend the monthly Board meeting – which in the last two years has been a virtual Zoom meeting – and 0-2 hours a month to prepare your part in the meeting.

    Please seriously consider volunteering. If you are even mildly interested in participating, contact any of the individuals listed below to get further information. Further information on Board openings is available on the Board and Committees page.
