April 2020
Upcoming Schedule of Events
Welcome to WOW's monthly newsletter! WOW is the  Woodbury Library Parks and Recreation Department  and  Senior Center's  collaborative effort to bring free programs to Woodbury for people of all age's enjoyment. You can find more information on these programs and all WOW programs .
As life is a little different this Spring and in order to bring some fun back to the season, we are proposing a different type of Egg Hunt this year, but we need your help to make it happen!
 
We would like to cover the Town in Eggs! They must be visible from the road, decorated in any way you choose, they can be wooden, cardboard, plastic, drawn on your driveway in chalk, a pile of rocks, a mural, hanging from a tree, on top of a mail box, next to your driveway... let your imagination run free and create your own decorated egg!  Please note: W.O.W. is not supplying materials for your egg.
 
Tell us where your egg is located! Send us your Street Name and number and we will create a list and post it on the W.O.W. website ( www.wowbury.org) on Friday, April 9th for everyone to conduct their own hunt and see how many eggs they can find around Town!
 
If you use social media, tag us and use #WoodburyEggHunt
 
How do join in:
If you wish to participate please email us at  wow@woodburyct.org , or call 203-263-3113 and we will add your egg location to the list!
 
During the weekend of April 10, 11 and 12, take a drive around town to the locations on the list and go on an egg hunt around Woodbury and look for all the Eggs displayed!
 
Thank you, and we really hope that you will join in this activity to bring some Spring Fun to our days, while still adhering to social distancing protocols that are so important at this time. Be safe and be well!
