Although the Atlanta January “blizzard” initially got in the way of the scheduled Trees Atlanta planting on Rogers Avenue, the rescheduled event finally took place on January 22nd. Volunteers both from inside and outside of the neighborhood came to plant trees along the landscape strips and front yards.
The Westview Community Organization participated in the annual National Night Out event on Tuesday, August 3rd. The Public Safety Committee organized neighbors to get together for this public safety event on the lawn at Magnificent Daycare on Westwood Avenue. WCO members donated food and drinks to be enjoyed, and school supplies to be handed out to children for the upcoming school year.

On Saturday, June 26th, the Westview neighborhood celebrated its 100th birthday. The Westview Centennial Celebration took place at KIPP STRIVE Academy, the new charter middle school next to the BeltLine.
The day’s activities started with a 5K sponsored by the BeltLine, followed by a ribbon cutting ceremony for the opening of the Westview portion of the BeltLine Model Mile.
The celebrations continued with music by RnB band In The Pocket, house music by DJs Ryze, Drew, and Ramon Rawsoul, puppet shows and storytelling for young and old, vendors selling organic soaps, prints and more, and some friendly rivalry between the grill-off contestants over who would win the public’s heart for their chicken and rib recipes.
