COMMISSIONS & COMMITTEES
While it is officially called the Recreation Committee, recreation is only part of the job description. The committee sponsors music concerts, health and exercise classes, and educational programs as well as children’s and family-friendly events and neighborly get-togethers throughout the year.
In what other town might you get to see a reptile zoo, a magician, a mime, musicians, and classic movies?!
Among favorite town traditions are the three-day Music Weekend, culminating in Sunday’s Baroque Breakfast; Bluestoberfest; Labor Day weekend races and games; the Fourth of July costume parade and potluck; Halloween pumpkin carving, pick-up softball games, and the Summer in the Parks program, which means that town kids have an old-fashioned summer camp experience–even a sleep-out–without the bus.
The committee helps provide for maintenance of the tennis courts and playground, and also serves as a sort of town host, providing plates and utensils for receptions, wine and beer (for appropriate occasions) as well as water and lemonade, snacks, flowers, etc.
However, in classic Washington Grove style, it is an informal, all-volunteer crew (and for instance, the WG Film Society steps up to rent and arrange the film series), so all town residents are encouraged to make suggestions for programs, assist in grilling hot dogs or baking cookies, watering the tennis courts, or just helping to set up or clean up once or twice a year. That’s how the Grove grooves!
