The Reggae concert on the beach is back again! One of the most popular events at Point O’Woods will be held 5:30-9:30 on Sunday, August 2. Bring your chairs, family, friends, and light snacks. Absolutely no glass items on the beach.
As I write this announcement, the forecast looks SUPERB … 80’s and 0% chance of rain!!!! But, in the event of bad weather, check this website for updates.
We’d like everyone to enjoy a fun & safe summer. Please remember that if you are operating a water vessel you should be familiar with the safety rules & regulations set forth by the State of Connecticut. You can find more information here:
The POW Women’s Club, along with The POW Library, is offering a summer writing program called “A Child’s View of Point O’Woods”. Children write and submit a short story about their activities, memories and what they enjoy about POW. Their stories will be printed in a book which will be available later in the summer for a nominal fee. Only the child’s first name, age and photo (if desired) will be printed with their story. Applications and instruction forms are available at the POW Library, 49 Ridgewood Rd. Contact Norm Stitham 860-434-1085 with questions.
Please note that all of the spaces available for beach storage have been utilized. Have a great summer!
