Wednesday Mailbag

3 Oct

News about all sorts of special events have been landing in my email box lately. So let’s get right to it…

The westbound lanes of the Bay Bridge will be closed again this weekend, beginning Friday at 5 pm, through Sunday around noon.  Traffic is going to be heavier on Empire Boulevard for the duration, so you may want to plan some alternate routes.

Webster resident Sara Cullen is organizing a benefit to fight eosinophilic esophagitis, an allergic inflammatory condition of the esophagus. The event is called Spin to Win, and is planned for Saturday October 6 from 8:30 to 10:30 am at Gold’s Gym, 855 Publisher’s Parkway.

Cullen’s eight-year old son Donovan suffers from the condition. Participants may contribute by taking a two-hour spin class at the gym from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., or taking a 9:30 a.m. body pump class. There is a $20 donation to participate.

All proceeds will go toward research through CURED, Campaign Urging Research for Eosinophilic Disease.

For more information, go to, or call the gym at 347-0047 to register to participate.

Did you hear that the school district is “re-evaluating” the Senior Project and has put it on hold?  That hasn’t stopped Schroeder senior Kaitlyn Newcomb from doing her own project.

Kaitlyn has organized a fund-raiser for the Webster Community Chest which is really unique. It’s called “Hoof’n It,” and will take place this Saturday morning, October 6, at the Webster Firemen’s Field. It’s a horse ride and walk. For $5 each, participants can mount a horse and take a guided 5-mile ride around the village of Webster. Anyone who does not want to ride is invited to walk along with the horses.

Registration will begin at 9 am the the ride begins at 10. Cash, check and non-perishable food donations will be accepted.  For more information, contact Kaitlyn at

Planning to go climb the iceberg at the Webster Aquatic Center on Columbus Day?  Better make other plans.

The Aquatic Center has sent word that the Iceberg Adventure scheduled for Monday has been cancelled. It’ll be back again on December 27. Contact WCSD Community Programs at 670-1087 with any questions.
