BoyScoutsEmblemLook for the new judging stand at Kiely Equestrian Center. It's the work of J.B. Pellegrin for his Eagle Scout Project which was funded by one of our recent community grants. It's now completed and we think you'll agree that it's a beautiful new asset to the Woodside community.

Friends MarkThe Friends of Huddart & Wunderlich Parks, one of the foundation's community grant recipients, used their grant to purchase equipment aimed at broadening the impact of their beloved educational programs.

The trail system in Woodside is more than an equine highway utilized for the horse rider’s recreation… they produce an unequaled ambiance in our community, add value to our property, and provide a setting far more attractive than office buildings and malls!

    Volunteerism runs deep with the Patrick family

    Growing up, local architect Stevan Patrick (pictured with Eagle Scout J.B. Pellegrin) learned early about the concept of giving back to one's community from watching his Dad. His father, also an architect and one who apprenticed with Frank Lloyd Wright, moved to Woodside before it was even a town. Serving as an early Town Council member, the elder Mr. Patrick put in his time serving his community as a dedicated and revered Town leader.

    Kathi Dancer and the Woodside Junior Riders

    At 6 years old, Kathi Dancer and her younger sisters began riding with the Woodside Junior Rider (WJR) program at the Kiely Equestrian Center in Woodside. Years later, when her own children were old enough, Kathi's children rode with the program too. In 1999, after more than 40 years of running Woodside Junior Riders humbly, quietly, and entirely by herself, Ursula Eisenhut decided it was time to pass the baton.

Participating in the Barkley Fields project opened my eyes to the potential of community. Finding a common cause and pulling together to achieve a mutually beneficial outcome for all the parties involved is what the Woodside Community Foundation is all about.
