Social Committee

Welcome to the Social Committee webpage!

My name is Melanie Simpson and I have been the Social Chair of the Bridlewood Community Association since March 2014 and have been a resident of Bridlewood since April of 2012. I have numerous years of experience in organizing social events both in my personal and professional life; I suppose you could say that event planning is a passion of mine. I am looking forward to meeting most of you at one of our wonderful social events.

Mark your calendars! Here are some of our upcoming social events:
