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. At 4 pm the Library will host a children’s craft decorating a lantern at the picnic tables in the Grove, the area between the Library, Old Firehouse and Center Building. Following the craft, the Community Council will host a full moon walk at the Fitzgerald Tract. The walk will leave from the parking lot at 5 pm and will follow the main path. Flashlights and lanterns are encouraged. Poor weather may cancel. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to be notified of any weather cancelations.
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 event. RSVP to email@example.com to be notified of cancelations.
The Community Council also invites all new residents to an in-person welcome meet-up on Friday, February 4 at 9 a.m. at the Town Hall main meeting room. “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 newish residents feel more connected to Woodbridge.”
Attendees will get answers to their questions, meet other new residents and, weather permitting, take a walking tour of the Town Center Campus. RSVP to Betsy Yagla at firstname.lastname@example.org. If the pandemic worsens this event may be held virtually.
