The Community Celebrates Willowstock
Willowstock, a tribute to the 50th anniversary of the Woodstock Music Festival, brought hundreds of Willow Creek residents of all ages to the Willow Way clubhouse area on August 17 to celebrate an afternoon and evening of community, music, food and fun.

Seated on the lawn as well as on blankets and camp chairs, the crowd heard four Willow Creek bands play six hours of live music while enjoying food and drinks either brought with them or purchased from trucks on site.

Blair Zykan, a member of the band Dogs Off Leash and former Willow Creek 3 resident now living in Willow 2, was the primary organizer of the free event.

Special thanks to each of volunteers and sponsors for their help making Willowstock possible: Blair Zykan (organizer); Willow Creek 2 Board of Directors; Leslie Wirtz (artwork); Above Treeline (band); Stella Jameson Band; Domesticated Animals (band); Dogs Off Leash (band); Christine Justino Your Castle Real Estate; Willow Creek Wine & Spirits; Metropolitan Bar & Grill; Mama Roma; Cam Solar; Health Now Family Practice+Walk In; Dan Lander Farm Bureau Insurance.

A few Willowstock commemorative t-shirts may still be available for purchase by contacting blair@blairzykan.com.
