Playground Update


Due to safety concerns arising from years of wear and tear the executive board has decided to close off access to the large wooden play set for the remainder of the season.  We will be addressing the issue in the off season, but for now we believe it is best to restrict its usage.  We thank you for your cooperation and understanding

One More Day of Yoga

Kendra Saari-Poznanski has added one more relaxing session of Sunday Yoga on September 1st at 9:30am. Please bring your own yoga mat and water. Open to all village residents, Wee Wah Beach Club members and their guests. $10 per participant.

Wee Wah Beach Club WILL Open This Summer!

Posted May 30, 2019

Despite reports to the contrary earlier this spring, the Wee Wah Beach Club WILL open for the 2019/2020 season.  As announced at the May 15 Village Board of Trustees meeting, representatives of the Beach Club and the Village were able to come to an agreement which will allow the Club to open for picnicking 7 days a week throughout the summer.  Swimming will be prohibited for the time being, pending approval from both the Department of Health and Village Lake’s Manager (North Eastern Aquatic Research – N.E.A.R.) although Mayor McFadden indicated that he is hopeful to see swimming reinstated before the end of the season.   Until these approvals have been granted however, the beach and swimming area will remain fenced off to the public. 
The Beach Club will hold its annual meeting on Sunday, June 2 at 7pm in the Town Hall and all past and present members of the Club are invited to attend.  At this meeting they will be electing their Executive Board for the 2019 season. Any adult who is at least 21 years of age, was a member in the 2017 season (last season of operation) and still resides in the Village of Tuxedo Park or the Hamlet may run for office. An equal number of board members from the Village and Hamlet will be elected. The Executive Board and the Village Trustee liaison will then elect the officers from these board members.
Although the Club’s lease with the Village began on Memorial Day Weekend, the opening date is dependent on their receipt of a certificate of insurance, which is expected sometime in Mid-June.

Fourth of July at the Wee Wah

Dear Wee Wah Members & Friends,

     We are very excited to inform you that the club will be OPEN for the 4th of July.  As you know, the dam repair is still ongoing but the Village of Tuxedo Park has agreed to our request to open for the day so that the longstanding tradition of gathering at the beach for the holiday can continue.  Anyone who was a member during the 2016 or 2017 seasons can come at no cost.  There will be the usual $3.00 charge per guest of any age.  Hours will be from 9:00 AM - 8:00 PM.  Please remember that we are a carry in/carry out facility.  To help defray our costs we will be running a raffle and, as always, donations will be gratefully accepted!

Damn Construction Update
     Please be aware that the dam area is still a construction site and completely off limits.  Anyone coming to the beach MUST use the customary route along the west side of the lake and return home the same way.  The road near the dam will be blocked off for both pedestrians and cars.  For everyone's safety we ask that you simply avoid the area.

     Many of you have been inquiring about the status of the club for this year and beyond.  The Village has been at work on the dam repair for over a year and, as with many projects of this size and complexity, they have encountered problems and delays.  While we opened for picnicking several days a week last summer with no swimming, the beach board did not feel that we were in a financial position to do it again this year and the Village had real concerns about safety around the construction site.  At the last Village Board meeting they estimated that the work would be completed towards the end of July.  Once the necessary approvals are received they can begin to refill the lake, which could take as long as two or more months, depending on the amount of rainfall at that point of the year.  Once filled, we should be back up to levels we have not had for several years which will allow us to have not only the raft but also the diving board.  It is our sincere hope that next season will be one of increased membership, lots of swimming and many fun times at the club!

Please note that the club will NOT be open on July 3rd for the annual fireworks.

South Gate Policy

Due to security changes recently adopted by the Village of Tuxedo Park, there will be no access to the Wee Wah Beach Club via the South Gate. The only exceptions are cars with a special license plate tag issued by the Village Police Department. Although it's sometimes a few extra minutes drive to the front gate, it is always worth the additional time to visit the WWBC! Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Beach Yoga

An additional Beach Yoga class has been scheduled for Sunday, September 6th at 9 am. Please email us at weewahbeachclub@gmail.com if you plan to attend.

Thank you very much,

Wee Wah Beach Club Mid-Summer 2015 Update

Dear Members and Supporters,

As we arrive at mid-summer, we would like to provide everyone with an update on the status of the club.  We are happy to report that, with increased membership numbers, generous donations and volunteer efforts, the club is in a much better economic situation than it was just a year ago. Our projections have us finishing the summer with an adequate balance to meet start-up costs for next season. 

If you have been to the beach lately you have probably witnessed for yourself the increased usage of this wonderful facility.  Our new carry in/carry out trash program is off to a great start and three new grills were donated and installed by fellow members.  Despite a brief rain shower, the family camp out was a success and this coming Sunday will start off with a 9 am session of yoga at the beach.
   
While we are pleased with the way things are going, we also know that we have only begun to secure the future of the WWBC.  As we have said over the last few years, the success of the club depends on our membership.  With that in mind the executive board is already strategizing ways to reach out to both Village and Hamlet families next year to increase our numbers.  Please help us in our efforts by encouraging friends and neighbors to join. Hope you are all having a wonderful summer.  Thank you for your support and see you at the beach!

The WWBC hours for July are as follows:

Monday through Thursday:  9 am to 8 pm

Friday, Saturday, Sunday:   12 noon to 8 pm
