Bart Chestman is Back!!!

November 14, 2014  –   6:30 p.m.  –   Prom Center, Oakdale

ForgotYourName TheWDaD2014 TheRetroPopsicle TheHardHitter

For the second year running, Woodbury’s gearing up for a Deal. It’s the Woodbury Community Foundation, backed by a number of area businesses, dealing up a party of memorable proportions – all for the great cause of Woodbury.

This year’s “Woodbury Does a Deal” will feature lounge acts from the Woodbury Community Theatre, as well as exquisite eats, cocktails, prizes, live and silent auctions, costumes, and much more. The event starts at 6:30 p.m. at the Prom Center in Oakdale.

Speaking of much more, the night will be rolling with hilarious antics from Bart Chestman, the infamous game show guru who’s excited to host Woodbury Does a Deal for the second year in a row. His solemn promise to Woodbury citizens: “The night of November 14, 2014 will overflow with an unstoppable flood of class. And prizes, prizes, PRIZES!”

Attendees are encouraged to sport a costume for the event (Bart Chestman will be attending as Bart Chestman) and to prepare themselves for an evening of exhilarating fun, furnished by Woodbury’s best.

To purchase tickets ($60 dollars each, or $75 on the day of the event) call 651-788-6586 or register online.

The Woodbury Citizens’ Academy is a ten-week program that engages citizens in their community through knowledge and volunteerism. Sponsored by the Woodbury Community Foundation, the City of Woodbury and the Woodbury Lions Club, the 2014 Academy was held in February and April.  The 2015 Citizens’ Academy will begin on February 12, 2015 and run through April 9, 2015.

Registration for the 2015 program is currently open and there are a limited number of participant openings left. For more information, send an e-mail to Claudia Millington, Citizens’ Academy volunteer program chair, at cmillington@cortrustbank.com.

The program is free and registration is accepted on a first come, first served basis. Priority is given to those who live or work in Woodbury. We are encouraging participants to get involved philanthropically by making a voluntary gift of $50 to help offset the cost of the program.

The Citizens’ Academy develops future leaders who are so important to assuring a strong, robust Woodbury well into the future. It expands the knowledge of our citizens in a way that encourages more involvement in our community. Planned by a team of community members, each weekly session is focused on a different topic:

  • Government

  • Economic Development

  • Woodbury History

  • Culture and Diversity

  • Public Safety

  • Media and Communications

  • City Works

  • Education

  • Volunteerism

Each session provides front line exposure to how local public, private and nonprofit sectors work in their respective areas, as well as how, in unison, they make Woodbury an exceptional place to live and work.

Graduates of the Citizens Academy come away with greater community engagement, inspired volunteerism, and encouragement of philanthropy throughout our city.

Through 2014, more than 120 people have Graduated from the Academy.
