We continually strive to update our website calendar for community events if we get word of something upcoming. Usually our Facebook page is the most updated for events as we have many community members that post the information to our page, we try to get them all into our calendar for you to see them. If you see an event that you think should be posted on our calendar feel free to let us know! Thank you for your time!

Website and Other Changes Forthcoming!

Hello West Grand Neighbors!

Even though you cannot see it yet we are working on many things for our website and other endeavors. Slowly we have been adding new things to this website to make it easier for you to find the information your need. Polls have been added, more descriptions in the Programs section have also been added. Some of the stuff we are working on is also not visible on this site, but are being posted to our Facebook page. We are also working on an information (welcome) packet for new members (Also not visible to you). A few things with that have had to be reworked so it is not ready yet, as we have not done one in recent years and our volunteer who is working on it is also making it digitized for people that would rather not have to bring more papers home and just want to view it online. Not only with this save with paper and ink costs for us as an organization so we can put that money into other important things, but it will also give some of you a little less clutter in your lives. Secondly, we have not done a welcome packet in recent years but have always and will continue to have information available on this website or at our office. You are welcome to come in and we will give you the information you are looking for, or you can check out the site to see if we have it online.   If you have gotten a membership recently, just remember you won't see a welcome packet yet because of it still being put together. All of these things will take some time to complete, especially when people are helping in their free time. Remember our volunteers also work and have families, which as you know is a full time job. If you have questions you can message us on Facebook, email or call us! We will do our best to answer them.

A volunteer is helping us with this so please be patient as the changes and new things roll out. Summer is always a busy time of year for us and there is a lot of events going on (You can view them on our Facebook events page and also on our calendar on this site). A lot of planning and volunteers make this happen for our community.

We have gotten some feedback about the lack of information available to some of you on Facebook. Information is available and has been posted as we get it, but Facebook has settings that make it so you do not see ALL posts from a page you have liked UNLESS you have interacted with that particular page every so often. Interactions like commenting or "liking" a post. When you like our Facebook page you can choose on the "Like" tab "Get Notifications" it should help somewhat if you do that, but remember that you still have to interact with our Facebook page in order to get more of the posts from it. It is a Facebook thing, not an issue we can fix. Also, any information posted to Facebook about WGNO programs is contained on this website if it involves events/programs or even contacting us.

Thank you for your patience and your support! We look forward to hearing from you!
