January is winding down. We can’t wait for February because February means more gatherings and events with you! By popular request, we are planning another Class Parent Gathering. The first one was full of productive conversation, sharing ideas across the generations of classes doesn’t happen very often. We’ve carved a new pathway for communication and that is something!

You will want to think about what your community association has to offer you. From our upcoming Eco-friendly Cleaning Class to our Lending Library and our annual fundraiser, the Pi Day Pie Auction, we are busy and seeking help. Please let us know your availability and we will find a way to include you in the backstage production. That’s where the real bonding takes place. Visit the community space and signing up for an activity. See the center panel of the bulletin board for the sign-up sheets.

By way of reminder, your WCA officers include Emily Reed and Linda Wrinn as co-chairs, Leah Mawson as Secretary and Despina Andronikidis as Treasurer.

Upcoming Events

Thanks go out to Ken Katz, Chris Dowley and Melissa Rodrigues for their contributions to our earth oven this past fall. Thanks to them we have shelter, warmth and storage!

Lastly, but not least, we share the verse we speak at each meeting…

“A healthy social life is found only when, in the mirror of each soul, the whole community finds its reflection, and when, in the whole community, the virtue of each one is living.”
– Rudolf Steiner
