What is a Civic Association and what purpose does it serve?
A civic association plays a vital role in representing the interest of its residents and perpetuating the quality of life of the community. Civic associations set a standard to maintain property values and makes our neighborhood a decent place to live. These organizations are generally a group of residents and other interested individuals who devote their time and energy to improve and enhance the area in which they live.
Some of the benefits of having a civic association include:
Achieving neighborhood goals
Providing the neighborhood with a voice and a means of communicating with government officials
Residents taking part in the decision- making process that affects their surroundings
Empowering residents in event planning and scheduling presentations of interest
Organizing neighborhood improvement projects
‘THANKS’ from the Board
A heartfelt THANKS to everyone who assisted, supported and participated in last year’s WCA’s meetings, activities, events, and/or programs. We look forward to serving you another year.
A Place Called Home
The old sitcom, “Mayberry, RFD” continues to warm the hearts of countless TV viewers, years after its production. Mayberry is depicted as a peaceful, friendly, family-oriented town where everybody knows everybody. The residents are working class people who are proud to live in Mayberry, where neighbors greet each other with a wave and a smile, and are always anxious for a friendly baking contest or a quaint neighborhood picnic. Those of us who lack the good fortune to have lived in Mayberry may yet learn simple truths from its simple life.
Woodmere can be our Mayberry. Caring for where we live and maintaining its status starts with us.
As residents of Woodmere Subdivision, if we take the initiative to become involved in our community, we could accomplish much. We must care for Woodmere as the place where we live. We must necessarily become involved in our community: knowing that though we may not be concerned with each other, we are connected.
Woodmere is a compound eight letter word as is, Mayberry. Woodmere is real and Mayberry is imaginary, yet, the life and the living of Mayberry makes it a place of pride and joy for its citizens. It only requires your caring and involvement. The hope of Mayberry begins here..
