Welcome to Wildwood! A Resource for New & Returning Families

We’re developing a new resource for families new to Wildwood, called “Welcome to Wildwood!” It has all kinds of links and information for people about how to connect to the PGO and to other Wildwood community events.  It’s especially for new and returning families, but there’s probably something there for everyone.

And if you’re a new or recently new Wildwood family, you probably have great ideas about what you would like to see on this page — so let us know!

PGO planning meeting, Sept. 23

I invite anyone interested in the PGO to come to a planning meeting at my house on Wednesday, Sept 23rd at 6:30pm. My address is 32 Oakwood Circle, Amherst. My two children (8 and 5) will be here and at least 1 or 2 other kids. I am planning on playing a movie for them with some popcorn while we meet in an adjacent room. If any of you need to bring your kids in order to make the meeting, they are welcome to come too.

The PGO has lots of goals – if you can help in any way, we’d be glad if you can come and see how to plug-in.

Please RSVP to to let us know if you can come to either or both of these events
