Get Involved

Get involved!

Consider helping to organize one our wonderful events throughout the year. It’s a great way to get to meet neighbors and help make our events the best they can be!

Another great way to improve our neighborhood is by joining the Ridgewood Civic Association cabinet.

Ongoing groups

Area Reps / Welcome Committee Area Reps

Ridgewood is divided into 10 sections, with 2-3 area reps covering each area to help distribute communications as needed.  Thanks to email, paper communication are very infrequent but are still needed for new neighbors not yet on the RCA email list.

Play Group

Help organize a group of parents and children for fun play group times together. It’s a nice way for families with younger children to meet each other early on!

Book Club

Help organize fellow bookworms for a fun and relaxing get together, and discuss readings each month, chosen/agreed upon by participants.

Ladies’ Social Club

Join this social committee to help organize monthly outings ranging from fun and creative gatherings at neighbors’ homes to planned events at local venues. A great way to socialize and swap information on valuable resources in our area!

Men’s Third Thursday

Why should the ladies have all the fun?  Organize a monthly get together, either at a neighbor’s backyard (let them know first!) or a local venue.


Plant perennials (its fun with a partner!), occasional weeding, weekly watering and adorning our Ridgewood signs with beautiful garland during the holidays are some of the ways we can keep Ridgewood looking its best.

Tee Time Meet Up

Join fellow Ridgewood golfers for semi-regular tee times during the warmer months. A great way to practice for the annual Ridgewood Golf Classic.

One-time Annual events
