Welcome to the West Norwalk Association!
Incorporated in 1947, Located in West Norwalk, CT
(Fee of $10 per Adult)
Thursday, December 5, 2013
from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
Dolce Norwalk Center
32 Weed Avenue, West Norwalk
Celebrate the Holiday Spirit with your West Norwalk neighbors at this annual event which is unique to our community. Meet new neighbors! Bring the kids! Enjoy delicious food (and a cash bar) in the beautifully decorated holiday atmosphere at Dolce Norwalk.
The $10.00 fee is new this year because the Association can no longer afford to hold this event in the Dolce venue without a charge to offset some of the cost. The 2014 WNA dues alone will not cover the admittance to the holiday party.
We hope that you will renew your membership for 2014 at this event as many people regularly do. As we stated in our Newsletter and at the Annual Meeting, the dues levels for 2014 are: $40.00 for resident; $60.00 for Good Neighbor; $100.00 for community Builder.
The WNA was founded in 1947 and acts as a “Quality of Life” organization with volunteers providing their time for “Good Deeds” such as cleanups, scholarships, beautifications projects, and political forums. The Board members also attend meetings and provide information about zoning issues, traffic problems, and other concerns raised by members of the Association.
PLEASE BRING NON-PERISHABLE FOOD FOR OUR FOOD DRIVE

Save Your Cans and Bottles to Support
the Marching Senators!
Over 100 students at Brien McMahon participate in the band program. In addition to four rehearsals a week, band members perform at home football games and a number of competitions throughout the year. In order for this program to be successful, a number of special instructors are required and transportation costs must be paid. Each year, a budget is created to determine the total costs for the season and then each student is assessed a fee for participation in the program.
Events like the can and bottle drive allow students and their families to work and earn an hourly rate that is then deducted from their account.
Please help these dedicated students and their families by saving your cans and bottles and delivering them to Fox Run School on the first Saturday of the month between the hours of 9:00 and 1:00 pm. This is a great opportunity for all of us in West Norwalk to make an easy and significant contribution to our neighborhood high school. Please also share this news with your neighbors who may not know of the importance of our participation in this monthly drive.
Annual Meeting a Great Success
On a beautiful autumn day, Sunday September 15, the WNA held its Annual Meeting at the Restaurant on the Green at Oak Hills from 3:30- to 6:00 pm.
Residents had the opportunity to pay their 2013 dues, contribute to a food drive for the Norwalk Pantry, and meet more than a dozen candidates for this year’s municipal election. In addition, the two mayoral candidates, Richard Moccia and Harry Rilling, spoke of their goals for Norwalk and how they would achieve them to an audience that filled the room.
Gay Mac Leod, Co-President, presented a list of the many good deeds accomplished by the Association during the last year and invited every family to attend the Holiday Party on Thursday, December 5 at Dolce. After she introduced the Board members, Linda Forcellina, Co-President, reported on the financial situation of the Association and asked for more volunteers to serve on the Board.
Light refreshments and dessert were served as residents and their families visited with new and old neighbors for the rest of the afternoon.
All in all, many reported that they particularly enjoyed the venue, meeting the candidates, and spending time with each other during this annual event hosted by the WNA.

A Letter from the Co-Presidents
On behalf of the West Norwalk Association, we would like to welcome you to our beautiful rural neighborhood. The purpose of the West Norwalk Association is to foster and preserve the residential character and quality of life in the West Norwalk community. In order to do so, the association has developed and maintains 3 adopt-a-spots to beautify the area, makes a financial donation to Fox Run Elementary School, and this year presented a scholarship to 2 students graduating from BMHS. Furthermore, the organization has planted trees on school property, sponsors an annual spring cleanup day, delivers welcome baskets to people moving into the neighborhood, and offers our services to neighbors in need of help. In addition, we respond to neighbors concerns and work with community leaders to try to solve issues and problems our neighbors might have.
We invite you to join us at our monthly Board of Directors meeting which is usually held in the Fox Run School library at 7:30 pm the first Monday of each month. There, neighbors have the opportunity to offer their input and raise issues for the board to consider.
Also, please check our website often and become a friend on Facebook. You can contact us online with any ideas, questions, or concerns you may have.
We hope that you will attend our Annual Meeting on September 23rd at Sons of Italy and our Holiday Party on December 6th at the Dolce center. This will give you an opportunity to learn more about our community in a social atmosphere.
Here is a membership form. While all residents of West Norwalk are automatically members, we are a totally nonprofit volunteer organization. All of our dues and donations go towards helping West Norwalk. The association depends upon active membership dues to help serve the community through our school donations, scholarships and beautification programs. We hope that you will join us in our efforts.
