As we moved past the difficulties of the last two years due to the pandemic, the Master Association in 2022 resumed our two largest community special events: MusicWORKS and WinterFest, both presented by Orlando Health.
The second annual MetroWest MusicWORKS on July 4 drew thousands of attendees who enjoyed live entertainment and an impressive fireworks show at the MetroWest Golf Club.
On Dec. 11, the ninth annual MetroWest WinterFest also welcomed thousands to the golf club for a successful family-oriented holiday event. And the annual MetroWest Charity Challenge raised over $4,000 for Edgewood Children’s Ranch, with Fairwinds Credit Union winning the Challenge.
Also in 2022, the Master Association supported MetroWest Elementary School and Westpointe Elementary School with a total donation of $10,000.
The monthly MetroWest Food Truck Connection, held on the fourth Thursday of the month, continued in 2022 and became even more popular.
Over the past year, MetroWest Public Safety continued to connect with businesses, residents and visitors to our community to help achieve the highest quality of life.
Finally, please welcome two new MWMA board members:
