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.
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.
