Meetings and Events

The Friends of Budlong have monthly meetings that alternate between Board Member meetings and Town Hall style meetings. Links to all of our meetings can be found in our calendar.

Our events are staggered throughout the year, with a mix of community building and fundraising. Where possible, we partner with local businesses so that our neighborhood can benefit, too. If you have a suggestion for a fundraiser or community building event, please let us know. We'd love to hear from you!

The 2020/21 School year will be different as a result of COVID-19. We look forward to continuing our in person Events as soon as it is safe to do so, If you have a suggestion for a COVID appropriate fundraiser, we'd love to hear from you!
