Welcome to Colonial Beach (WCB) September Meetup
The next WCB meetup will be on Thursday, September 21, at St. Mary's Episcopal Church (203 Dennison St, corner of Dennison St and Washington Ave), beginning at 6 PM. Our guest speaker will be Don Dooley, Director of Community Development, Town of Colonial Beach.
These monthly meetups are a great way to get to know people, and learn about Colonial Beach and ways you can serve your community. Check our Events page to look ahead to future meetups.
Bring these Colonial Beach icons home. The Foundation is pleased to have debuted a new ornament showing our beloved Town Pier during the 2023 NNK Beach Music Festival. We also have some LOVE Golf Cart ornaments left -- our original ornament, which we reordered twice, but will be retired when we run out.
You can purchase ornaments for $25 each at Colonial Buzz Expresso and Wine Bar (234 Colonial Ave) and Beach Paws Boutique (116 Hawthorne St) with cash or check (payable to Colonial Beach Community Foundation); or, at the Foundation's tent on Town Hill during events with cash, check, or credit card.
Please Support our Community Crisis Fund & Help Us Help Our Food Pantries
Rising prices are putting a strain on our local food pantries. Please help us help them. Through its Community Crisis Fund, the Foundation provides gift cards that the pantries can distribute as needed. These cards enable clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have, such as fresh foods, baby products, and toiletries.
To donate, use the button below to open our PayPal donation page and select Community Crisis Fund on the drop-down menu.
