September 12 – November 20 | Fall Get Out & Move Challenge
Casual participants or serious athletes, join the fun at the next Get Up, Get Out & Move Challenge. It’s not a race or a competition but a great motivation to get outside for some exercise while helping raise money for the WCA. (Or taking a few pictures for the photography contest!) Learn more.

October | Fall Decorating Contest | Yards from Wilmot Flat to North Wilmot
This year, the WCA is widening the scope of its long-running, annual scarecrow contest. Decorate your porch, your front yard, your rooftop – let your imagination run wild. From spooky graveyards and ghosts to cozy country décor, we’re looking forward to seeing your autumnal magic. To enter, fill in and send a registration form along with photograph(s) of your autumnal creativity by Wednesday, October 21.
Our esteemed judges will be choosing up to ten winners. We’re flexible with categories, which could include Spookiest, Best Ensemble, Best Use of Natural Materials, and Best Channeling of Martha Stewart. Keep a look out at the end of the month for yard signs proclaiming WINNERS throughout town.
November 1 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. | Halloween Tales | Virtual Presentation
Local storyteller Simon Brooks will tell stories to send chills down your spine. The program will begin at 6:30 p.m. with not-so-spooky stories for families and younger children. Part 1 is recommended for anyone aged five and older. Part 2 begins at 7 p.m. and stories include terrifying tales about goblins and ghouls, ghosts and gallows, witches and will o’ the wisps! These scarier stories are perfect for teens and adults.
