To the editor:

Commendations go to the City of Woodbury for planning the first New Resident Welcome Party on May 3 at the Health East Sports Center. People could meet Mayor Anne Burt and other council members, you could talk with representatives from all different departments in Woodbury about services and resources available from the city. You could receive information from nonprofits that impact the Woodbury community.

There were multiple inflatable and bounce houses, plus many other children's activities. You could tour the Xcel Energy Tiny Home.

Thank you to the City of Woodbury, Xcel Energy and Krause Anderson for hosting this interesting and valuable event. May this event happen again for future new Woodbury residents!
