At the March Town Hall meeting of the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association, the formation of a few new committees and clubs were announced.  We are looking for members to fill out the rosters of these groups – email us at info@woodhaven-nyc.org or call 718-296-3735 and leave a message.  These groups and clubs will meet separately from the WRBA, but will be affiliated with the organization and will report back to the Board of Directors.

Here are a list of the committees:

Parks Committee.  This group will meet to discuss issues pertaining to the parks within our community.  This not only includes Forest Park, but also includes the parks and playgrounds in Woodhaven.  A first meeting of the Parks Committee will be announced at the beginning of April.

Traffic & Roads Committee.  This group will tackle the issues involving the safety on the roads within Woodhaven.  With Woodhaven Boulevard being designated the most dangerous road in Queens for pedestrians, and with 2 recent fatalities on our roads, this is a topic that needs attention.  First meeting to be announced – but traffic and safety is on the agenda for the April 20th Town Hall meeting of the WRBA.

Church & Faith Committee.  The initial goal of this group is the foster communications between the many churches and religious organizations within Woodhaven,  and to report back and keep the community up-to-date about their events and activities.  First meeting to be announced.

Schools Committee.  The initial goal of this group is twofold.  (1) to meet to discuss issues pertaining to the parks within our community; and (2) to develop contacts at each school, gather information, and keep the community up-to-date about their events and activities.  First meeting to be announced.

Woodhaven Yard Sale Committee.  The goal of this group is to plan, organize and promote the Great Woodhaven Yard Sale.  First meeting to be announced.

Here are a list of clubs and activities:

Woodhaven Poetry Club.  The stated goal of this club is to “promote the study, use, and enjoyment of poetry.” The Woodhaven Poetry Club has actually been in existence for a while and it meets on the third Tuesday of each month at the Woodhaven Residents’ Block Association: 84-20 Jamaica Avenue from 6:30 PM to 8 PM. The next meeting will be Tuesday April 16th.

Joe Virgona Photography Club.  This club will meet on the last Thursday of each month, at the offices of the WRBA, 84-20 Jamaica Avenue at 7 PM.  The next meeting will be Thursday March 28th.  This club is geared towards amateurs — but all levels of expertise is welcome.  Click here for more information.

Woodhaven Supper Club.  This club will plan regular outings to local restaurants as a group.  A social gathering which gives members a chance to interact outside of our regular meeting environment.  Also gives us a chance to sample some of the many restaurants we have here in Woodhaven.  First gathering to be announced.
