The Wellborn Community Association is a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation whose mission is to provide for the mutual welfare of the residents of Wellborn and its surrounding areas, to enhance community life by being attuned to the needs of the less fortunate members of the community, and to care for their social, economic and physical needs as means permit. Funds raised also support a community association building where functions are held to enhance the social spirit of the community. Our building is available for business meetings, group meetings, children's parties, holiday, birthday or retirement parties, or family reunions. Kitchen facilities are included. Contact Wendell Snowden at 386-963-1157.
Our main function and fundraiser each year is the Wellborn Blueberry Festival, held the first Saturday in June on the community center grounds in downtown Wellborn. Enjoy arts & crafts and food vendors, the country store, kids' games and amusements for no admission fee. Featured items are fresh blueberries and blueberry bushes, blueberry pies, cobbler, ice cream, jelly, syrup, and (of course) our famous blueberry pancake breakfast.
The 22nd Annual Wellborn Blueberry Festival will be held June 6, 2015. This year's theme is "Come Clown Around," and our Festival King and Queen will be long-time members, Ron & Esther Chappel. We already have many vendors lined up and several sponsors are also on board. See the Blueberry Festival page for a list of the 2015 sponsors to date. The WCA is an all-volunteer association and the members work very hard all year long to put on the Festival. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped and to Suwannee County Public Works, Parks and Recreation, the Sheriff's Department, and the Fire Department for all their help as well. Anyone interested in volunteering to help with the Blueberry Festival, please contact Wendell at 386-963-1157. Pictures of the 2014 Festival are featured on the Event Pictures page.
