Welcome to Colonial Beach January Meetup

Whether you are new to Colonial Beach or have lived here for years, WCB meetups are a great way to learn about the Town and surrounding area, get together with friends, meet new people, and discover how you can get involved in the Colonial Beach community.

LOVE Golf Cart Ornaments

The LOVE Golf Cart ornament has been a big hit! So much so that we sold out very quickly and have had to order more. Email [email protected] to reserve yours. They should arrive in February.

Net proceeds from the LOVE ornament sales will go into the Foundation's Community Crisis Fund to assist our local food pantries.









Local Food Pantries

Our local food pantries are still working hard to meet the needs of the Colonial Beach community. Please help us help them. The Foundation provides gift cards to the food pantries that they can distribute as needed. These gift cards enable pantry clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have on hand, such as fresh foods, refrigerated items, baby products, and toiletries.

Apply your talents and enthusiasm to your community foundation

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...

Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
