From the Director's Desk

Welcome Linda!!!

We couldn't be happier to introduce the new WP&R Clerk, Linda McCarthy!

Linda has resided in Woodbury for 22 years with her husband and three daughters. She enjoys all things plants and gardening and other hobbies include reading, beekeeping and making sourdough bread!

Linda has been with us only two weeks and she has already proven to be an incredible asset to our department. We feel very fortunate to have her on our team, and Woodbury is certainly lucky to have her serving their community. So please make sure the next time you stop by the office or give us a call to give Linda a warm hello!

Spring is here and many programs and events are BLOSSOMING, so make sure to WEED through the information below to see everything that is BLOOMING in the near future!

We want to offer a special thank you to all our community partners that gave their time, money and efforts into making this event possible. This event truly takes a village and the Woodbury community stepped up to the plate and we are incredibly grateful!
