Help is needed for committee planing, running the games, and set-up / clean-up – it’s a great opportunity to accumulate Community Service hours and get to know your neighbors! If you’d like to sign up as a volunteer, contact Debbie Gary at debbiegary@comcast.net .

Belwood Bingo and Movie Night

Belwood Cabana Movie Night

The next “Belwood Bingo and Movie Night”  is tonight, Aug 19th, for paying cabaña members and their guests. At 6 pm the music starts, at 6:30 pm it’s bingo, and the film, Captain Marvel, starts at 8:15 pm.

What to bring to the Belwood Bingo and Movie Night

This is an outdoor event, and things get cool to cold after the sun goes down. Dress in layers and bring something comfy to sit on – blankets, sleeping bags, lawn chairs etc.

Bring your picnic supper, or if you’ve already eaten, there will be popcorn, cotton candy, and other treats are available for purchase!

For more information, keep an eye on the Belwood HOA website page for this event (and hopefully another one in July or August).

Belwood of Los Gatos July 4th Celebration

Belwood 4th of July PartyThe Belwood of Los Gatos community is hosting its annual Independence Day or 4th of July celebration and the details will soon be announced on the Belwood HOA website. Last year, neighborhood festivities ran from 1pm – 5pm at the cabaña.  Read all about it on the Belwood HOA site!

Annual 4th of July Party

The party is open to Belwood members and their invited guests only. This will be the second July 4th community party out of lockdown (they were annual until 2019, but were put on hold from 2020-2021), and it’s a great opportunity for newer residents, especially, to get to know their neighbors.

Please note that our warm, dry, and windy summers make the risk of fire danger very high. Fireworks are illegal in most of Santa Clara County without a permit due to the safety hazard. A sign at Belgatos Park warns that fireworks are strictly prohibited. There are some spectacular professional firework displays and festivities around the Valley that you can enjoy, including the, which is less than 10 minutes by car and 20 minutes by bike from Belwood!

Belwood Cabaña is on FacebookGot Facebook? If so, you might consider tagging photos shared of the event with the unofficial Belwood Cabaña page on Facebook. It’s another great way to keep in-touch and stay updated with the community.
