This Old House: Westview

We’ve waited out the summer heat and now we’re going to do a 2 for 1 with our 3rd quarter “This Old House: Westview” project! We’ll be clearing overgrowth for Ms. Nina as well as cleaning up Westview’s own Stokes Park. Ms. Nina is a neighbor who has struggled to get the overgrowth in her back yard under control. She recently had to dig deep to pay for the removal of a huge dying tree and could use some help getting the rest of the back yard clear she and her grand kids can start next spring with a clean slate in their back yard. Meanwhile, Stokes Park needs some general grounds and tree maintenance.

We need volunteers to do the work as well as provide drinks, snacks, and lunch! Please bring work gloves and drinking water. You can also bring your favorite trimmers, loppers, rakes, or other yard tools!

This Old House: Westview is a quarterly event organized by the Westview Community Organization to assist senior neighbors with needed maintenance, repairs, and improvements to their homes and yards.

2012 Westview Caroling

2012 Westview Caroling Photos

For the last two years a few lucky Westview neighbors had been able to enjoy the pleasure of carolers ringing their doorbell on December 24h. With all the hard work that was put into the Stokes Avenue Pocket Park in 2012 it only seemed appropriate to hold the 2012 Westview caroling event at the park. Neighbors decorated the park with string lights, brought snacks and beverages, and huddled around a small fire to sing Christmas songs.
