The mission of the Friends of Westford Community Rowing (FWCR) has always been to ensure local rowing opportunities for Westford and the surrounding area, across all age groups, for those seeking both recreational and competitive experiences. FWCR has largely operated behind the scenes, organizing fundraising initiatives and purchasing the equipment used by all the rowing programs. We represent a wide spectrum of the rowing community and have broad experiences that will guide WCR through the current transition.
Last night the board voted unanimously to reorganize in a way that will enable us to expand our scope and directly offer programs starting in the spring of 2018. We are committed to continuing the tradition of offering a wide range of high quality coached programs to all of our stakeholders.
It will take some time to work out the best way to organize and deliver all of the programs. The next step is meeting with the Town Manager, Acting Parks and Recreation Director, Parks & Recreation Commission, Westford Academy Principal and Athletic Director, and Westford Friends of Recreation. We will continue to provide updates during this process.
In the short term the Recreation Department will offer winter indoor rowing programs that have sufficient enrollment. We encourage you to sign up for any program that meets your needs.
Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to providing more information about the upcoming spring season as soon as we can. We want your input! Please contact us with any questions, concerns, or suggestions at our Board email address firstname.lastname@example.org (which can also be found at www.westfordrowing.com/board).
