Community Council Announces Winter Events

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 byagla@woodbridgect.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 byagla@woodbridgect.org.
