GVCA’s News & Views

Guildwood Village Community Association’s official print publication, News & Views, is being hand-delivered right now to each household in Guildwood Village by volunteers. This happens 4 times a year. It’s really something. But wait, there’s more! Each edition is meticulously put together by volunteers too and the stories inside are researched, written, photographed and shared by volunteers. Usually about things or events created by volunteers. Did I mention volunteers had something to do with this?

It’s incredible and it’s been going on for decades.

Thank you to the volunteers of the GVCA 💪👊


A fantastic Guild Festival Theatre production turns into pure magic when it’s set in Guild Park. It’s impossible to capture the magic on camera – it’s a combination of acting craft, community, history, the physical setting, lighting, sounds, open air and so much more.

Photography is not allowed during the performance but here’s an unfiltered photo of the stage during intermission last night.

It’s incredible and unique to Guildwood Village. I encourage everyone – grownups and kids – to experience Paul Ledoux’ “Anne” this summer at the “Greek Theatre”.
