Welcome Baskets
When new families move into Woodgate, they are visited by a representative of our Membership Committee and given Welcome Baskets filled with freshly baked bread or muffins, fruit, other goodies and a Neighborhood Directory.

Woodgate Day (Spring)
On June 26, 1976, the Leon County Commission issued a proclamation that stated: "In celebration of the American Bicentennial, the Leon County Board of Commissioners proclaim that June 26, 1976 be declared Woodgate Day in Leon County." Every year since, Woodgate neighbors celebrate a day of family fun in the Spring.

The day begins early in the morning with a free pancake and sausage breakfast for the whole neighborhood.

Local City and County officials, First Responders and other dignitaries plus the SWAT team truck, an ambulance, City truck, Fire Department truck and other vendors come to spend the day with us.

Easter Egg Hunt (Saturday before Easter)
Children are separated by age group so the little ones will have a competing chance at finding goodies.

Garage Sale
The Association holds an annual Neighborhood-wide Garage Sale to assist neighbors with Spring-cleaning. An advertisement is placed in the Tallahassee Democrat and a sign is posted at the entrance island to attract "customers" to the neighborhood.

Tailgate Party (Fall)
The Association holds its annual Tailgate Party in the fall. All Woodgate adults are invited and are asked to bring a side dish to add to the meat provided by the WNA, a Woodgate tradition.

In addition, the Fall General Meeting is held at this time to give neighbors an opportunity to discuss and vote on issues concerning Woodgate. The nominating committee will ask for volunteers to be on this committee and for any nominations for the next year's WNA Board.
