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 Friday and Saturday in June on the community center grounds in downtown Wellborn. Arts & crafts and food vendors, the country store, parade, blueberry bake-off, raffles and door prizes, kids' games and crafts are all featured for two days of fun. Featured items are fresh blueberries and blueberry bushes, blueberry pies, cobbler, ice cream, jelly, syrup, fudge, and (of course) our famous blueberry pancake breakfast.
The 2012 Wellborn Blueberry Festival was a great success with an estimated 6,000 in attendance. Over 110 vendors presented their arts & crafts and served delicious food. See the Blueberry Festival page for a list of all the sponsors who helped make it happen. 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. See the Event Pictures page to share in some of the fun.
This sign (to the right) installed by the Suwannee County Fire Department is another indication how close we are to realizing Station No. 5, which was a goal of the association for several years.
