Each October, the Washington community comes together to celebrate our strength as we participate daily in a “Plank Challenge”. The month culminates in a town wide “Plank-a-thon” with a DJ, door prizes and of course our plank champions!

Every year, money raised from the event is donated to a local charity. In 2018 we were able to raise more than 1800 dollars for New Milford Hospital’s Plow to Plate.

First Selectman Mark Lyon

This year, we are planking in gratitude for Mark Lyon! Mark has served our town for the past twelve years and we would like to show our appreciation for all he has done. Mark has chosen the Washington Community Fund as the recipient of all monies raised by this year’s event. The Washington Community Fund provides assistance for local families in need.
