Changing times challenges us to keep in touch with as many Witherbee residents as possible. Avenues of communications change and newsletters, web sites, flyers and newspapers are not touching everybody any more. Online social networks have come quickly into the picture as a means to keep each other informed. That is why Witherbee has chosen to include Facebook pages as a communication tool to keep residents, young and old, up-to-date.

Please join Witherbee as a fan on Facebook and you will find pictures of events from cleanups, pool parties, block parties, lighting contests and much more. You will be informed of activities and events from the neighborhood in real time. You will be able to comment on posts, participate in discussions and communicate with each other.

If you don’t have a Facebook account, go to www.facebook.com and sign up. It is simple and easy.

To be sure you are not missing out on any NEWS sign up to be on our email list. Click here to subscribe. Most of the time you will only receive a couple emails a month. We are working hard to stay in touch with all residents, please help us to stay in touch with you to keep you informed!
