The Woodbridge ad hoc Community Council invites residents to get outside and be social this winter. The Community Council will host two outdoor events at Fitzgerald Tract and a New Resident Meetup.
On Saturday, December 18 the Community Council will partner with the Library Children’s Department for a full moon lantern walk. The walk will leave from the parking lot at 5 pm and will follow the main path. Lanterns (or flashlights) are encouraged.
Due to the increase in positive COVID-19 cases, the Library’s craft event will no longer be in person. Instead, families can stop by the children’s department anytime between Monday, December 13 and Saturday, December 18 to pick up a lantern craft kit. No registration required, one kit per person.
On Saturday, February 5 the Community Council will host a stargazing event at the Fitzgerald Tract at 7 pm. Participants will meet in the parking lot and walk to the viewing location as a group. Lanterns and flashlights strongly encouraged. A few telescopes will be available; residents are encouraged to bring one to share if available. Local astronomy enthusiast Harvey Kliman will guide the viewing.
Poor weather may cancel either outdoor event. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of cancelations.
The Community Council also invites all new residents to a virtual welcome meet-up on Friday, February 4 at 9 a.m. The link will be available soon on the Town’s online calendar, www.woodbridgect.org/calendar.
“We know it takes a while for people to feel part of a new community, and we’d like to help ease that transition,” says Community Council chair Debbie Brander. “It must be especially hard during a pandemic and we hope these events will help new and new-ish residents feel more connected to Woodbridge.”
Attendees will get answers to their questions and meet other new residents. RSVP to Betsy Yagla at email@example.com.
