Happy Holidays from the WBNA!
The holidays are HERE! We hope you’ll join us in celebrating these wonderful Wells Branch traditions. Take time to reconnect with family, friends and neighbors. We look forward to seeing each of you at the festivities!
Wells Branch neighbors, you’re invited to bring a prepared covered dish or dessert to share and spend the evening among family and friends exchanging memories while creating new ones. Our Thanksgiving Potluck is a long-standing tradition in Wells Branch you won’t want to miss. Turkey, ham, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, and beverages will be provided by the WB MUD.
Hoop it up and put your basketball skills to the test! Various games will be held for Wells Branch Youth to take their shot at taking home a grand prize! The contest starts at 6:00pm in the WB MUD Rec. Center Gym. Participants accumulate points by competing in a variety of basketball activities. Age groups will be split into three groups: 8-10, 11-13, and 14-17. Grand-prize winners from each age group will receive a turkey. Registration is free and you can register in-person at the Recreation Center.
Break out the tinsel and holly! Deck the halls, yard, trees, cars, dogs, cats… Let’s show some good ole WB spirit! The WBNA is sponsoring the Holiday Home Decorating Contest again this year!

Experience the glow of the holidays as our trails light up with luminaries around Katherine Fleischer Park on December 13 & 14. Santa will be visiting the Homestead Cabin both nights from 6-9pm with FREE photos provided by WB Community Church and digital copies available the next day on the WBNA Facebook page.
Warm up inside the Community Center with hot cocoa and cookies provided by the WB MUD Parks & Rec. Dept. WBNA sponsored craft tables will be set up both nights and children will have the opportunity to create ornaments and keepsakes. Volunteers will be on hand to assist with crafts and MUD staff will keep the refreshments flowing.
Join us outdoors for a caroling hayride or a trip around the trails on the Holiday Express Train to see the luminaries up close. Jessica Shepherd will host the kids’ karaoke inside the Community Center on Saturday night with continued crafts and refreshments for all to enjoy.
Help to light the luminary candles on Friday and Saturday at 3:30pm. The MUD will have lighters on hand but feel free to bring your own long lighter and meet in the courtyard at the Community Center. Wagons are encouraged Saturday to help carry the replacement candles along the trail.
We hope to see you there!
