Our next event is our HOLIDAY LUNCHEON

Mark your calendars.  We will return to the cozy dining room at the Redding Country Club, decorated for the holiday and complete with a roaring fireplace!  You don’t want to miss it.  Your presence is needed to vote on the WCMOA 2022 slate of officers.  Head over to the RESERVATION PAGE now to reserve your place.


Our Fall BBQ at Port 5 was a resounding success! 

We had 40 attendees – Our MOST EVER!

The weather was fabulous and the entire event took place on the scenic deck overlooking Long Island Sound. 

Our guest speaker, Tara Carr, LTC, USA (Ret), gave a fascinating account of her career and some thoughts about leadership and the future of our local communities.  She was just elected the new First Selectman of Brookfield, displacing the incumbent!  Good luck Tara!
