Upcoming Neighborhood Social Events | Holiday Caroling | Cookie Exchange | Fire Truck Parade | WW Gives Back

Hello Neighbors,

The Washingtonian Woods Social Committee is proud to host and offer the following events to the neighborhood this December:

Washingtonian Woods Gives Back
Saturday, December 10th
10:00am – 1:00pm
Washingtonian Woods Clubhouse

We are excited to bring back our annual Washingtonian Woods Gives Back holiday gift giving program. This year we are again partnering with KINDH (Kids In Need During Holidays) and helping to provide children in Montgomery County with a memorable holiday experience.

We will be adopting 10 families whose parents/guardians have submitted wish lists to the KINDH organization. In addition to the family wish list, we are asking for grocery store gift cards for each family to purchase food for their holiday meal.

Please take a look at the lists in this Signup Genius for requested gifts. When you sign up, please
understand that you are committing to purchasing AND wrapping your gifts. Please include batteries if the gift you’re buying needs them. DO NOT include gift receipts! Wrapped gift drop off will be on Saturday, December 10th from 10:00am – 1:00pm at the Washingtonian Woods clubhouse.

We ask that you label your wrapped gift(s) with the child’s FIRST NAME only. Please do not put your name or family name on the gift tag. You will need to know the family number associated with the gift when you drop off.

Thank you in advance for your support and help in making this a wonderful holiday for these children.

Please contact Marcie Blackman ([email protected]) or Rhonda Haley ([email protected]) if you have any questions.

Neighborhood Holiday Caroling

Come caroling with us!
Our Holiday Caroling tradition is back! Come out at 7 pm Friday, December 9 in the driveway of Jim Camlek and Marylou Berg’s house, 115 Upshire Circle, for hot beverages, cookies and some singing practice. Then, we’ll regroup for the main event at 6:30 pm Friday, December 16, in the Upper Clubhouse for some light fare before heading out to three singing stops in the neighborhood.

More details later — for now, all are welcome to join us for some festivity and holiday fun!

Holiday Cookie Exchange
Monday, December 19th
7:00pm – 9:30pm
Washingtonian Woods Clubhouse

The Washingtonian Woods Social Committee is excited to offer a Holiday Cookie Exchange!

If you have never been to one, you are in for a treat, literally! Depending on the number of participants, each person will bring approximately 5 dozen homemade cookies/bars of your choice. Also, please print the recipe on a sheet of paper so that participants may be able to see the ingredients and be able to copy the recipe, if they would like.

We will have separate tables for those treats that have nuts and ones that do not. At the end of the night, you are able to take home 2-3 of each goody. The Social Committee will have some light hors d’oeuvre to munch on. Please make sure you bring tupperware or a ziplock bag in order to take home the cookies.

PLEASE RSVP through this Sign up Genius by December 12th.

If you have any questions, please contact Meredith Bollini – [email protected]
