Wildwood is an outstanding community to live in – and we truly are a community where neighbours not only know their neighbours, but they help out in the community!
Happier volunteers – many hands make light work, as they say. The more Wildwoodians that step up to help out, the easier it will be to continue the many great programs in the community! Without the volunteers that coordinate and give their time and efforts to events and programs in the neighbourhood, we wouldn’t live in such an engaging and fun Wildwood.
