Creating Community Traditions That Bring Neighbors Together
Eastmark is home to many inspired families and leaders who raise the bar and elevate life for everyone in our community.
Take the Hunter family. Among the first 100 families to move into Eastmark, they wanted a home in a community that supported their value for family and connection. Before the boxes were unpacked in their new Eastmark home, Jackie Hunter started a new tradition to showcase our national pride – planting U.S. flags along all the neighborhood parks that Memorial Day. Since then, the tradition has grown to include 30 volunteers, 2,000 U.S. flags, 25 neighborhood parks (and counting!) and three holidays – Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veteran’s Day.
And let’s not forget Eastmark’s annual, community-wide events – traditions in their own right that include special Eastmark touches. In July, residents decorate their cruiser bikes, golf carts, scooters and wagons in red, white and blue for the Spirit of Community Parade; and in December, residents bring personalized ornaments to decorate our community’s holiday tree at our A Very Merry Eastmark celebration.
