Western Yolo Recreation Center Association, WYORCA
WYORCA is a non-profit corporation dedicated to raising funds for the construction of a community swimming pool and recreation facility serving the communities of Madison, Esparto, Capay, Brooks, Guinda, and Rumsey in the Capay Valley region.
The swimming pool opened last May (summer 2019).  The park is expensive to maintain, WYORCA is doing all they can to raise more funds.  The park is open year-round.
Current need: shade decks
 
President Elect, Dave Reed
Dave’s vision:  be part of a collective effort to help with harvesting for Yolo Food Bank on a larger scale.  We will need to reach out to other groups and friends to enlist volunteers for harvesting crops to work with the Yolo Food Bank.  Discussion of how our current Community Harvest will change and or grow.
