Volunteerism has been an important part of the Foxwood Springs community since the first residents moved here in June, 1978.  As the community has grown, more volunteer jobs in a wide variety of areas have developed.
Residents may do as much or as little as they want to do.

On the week end of On May 6, 7, and 8, 2016, there was a
Successful 10th Anniversary Celebration of
