Willowsford Social Club

The Willowsford Social Club celebrates "A Belated Cinco de Mayo!" on Saturday, May 19th at The Lodge.

On May 5, 1862 the Mexican Army defeated the French army at the Battle of Puebla. In Mexico, this holiday is a relatively minor one, but in areas of the United States with large Mexican-American populations, it has evolved into a commemoration of Mexican Culture and Heritage. 

Please join us at 6 PM in The Lodge, to mingle with friends and neighbors from our wonderful community. Bring your favorite South of the Border dish, (appetizer, entree or desert) to share, and beverages of choice. Dress is casual or festive as you choose, for this special occasion. This event is adults-only.


Willowsford Cares Club 

To help address food insecurity issues facing children and adults during the summer and to inform Club Members on the hunger landscape, the Willowsford Cares Community Service Club will hold the Hunger Awareness Initiative from May 14 – 23, 2018. During this time, Club Members will have an opportunity to participate in food drives, stock shelves at a local food pantry, pack snack bags for the homeless, and gain a new perspective on what it’s like to feed a family on a limited food budget. Sign-ups and additional information can be accessed on the Club’s Facebook page.  Please email Meredith Taylor (k.meredith.taylor@gmail.com) or Ken Taylor (kenneth.h.taylor@gmail.com) if you have any questions or would like to receive the information via email.
