Greenbriar Cove Celebrates Labor Day With A Parade

Friday, September 18, 2020

Greenbriar Cove celebrated Labor Day with a parade to honor current essential workers, as well as those retired essential workers residing in their neighborhood.  Janet Sivils chaired the event and was helped by members of GBC Social Committee.

Greenbriar Cove worked in conjunction with Morning Pointe of Collegedale and the Collegedale Police Department to plan this inaugural parade. 

The parade route included all five neighborhoods of Greenbriar Cove (a 55+ residential community in Collegedale), Garden Plaza of Greenbriar Cove (a three-story independent living facility) and Morning Pointe of Collegedale (an assisted living facility).

Collegedale Police cruisers led and brought up the rear of the parade, which also included a 1924 Lincoln Pumper Fire engine (provided by Morning Pointe), the GBC “Ice Cream Jeep” and 20 Greenbriar Cove residents driving golf carts, convertibles and other autos decorated with patriotic themes.  In addition to the ice cream, miniature flags, beads, bracelets and other trinkets were distributed within the GBC neighborhood.

The GBC Social Committee has provided other safe activities since the quarantine began including “The Ice Cream Jeep”, BINGO in the clubhouse parking lot, chalk art activities, outdoor socials, a variety of food trucks and kayaking at Harrison Bay State Park, as well as movie nights.

Exercise classes, using safe practices, have also resumed in the indoor pool and the exercise room and are led by an on-staff exercise instructor.

"In the midst of a pandemic, it Is still a great time to live in Greenbriar Cove of Collegedale," officials said.
