The Westview Community Organization meets the first Monday of every month to discuss happenings, events, and news in the neighborhood.
Join your neighbors for the annual community harvest dinner. The dinner has become a Westview tradition that allows neighbors to celebrate as everyone brings the year to a close. All neighbors are invited to participate. The dinner is also open to any person who does not have a community to surround them on this day.
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.
Join the Westview Community Organization’s Zoning and Public Safety Chair, John Pettinger, your neighbors, police, firemen and city officials on Tuesday, August 7th at 7:00pm for food and public safety awareness! The event will be held 1635 Westwood Avenue (near the intersection of Manson).
National Night Out, ‘America’s Night Out Against Crime,’ was introduced by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW) in 1984 to prevent crime, drugs and violence in cities across America. That first year, 400 communities in 23 states participated in National Night Out. Nationwide, 2.5 million Americans took part in 1984. National Night Out now involves over 37 million people and 15,000 communities from all fifty states, U.S. Territories, Canadian cities, and military bases worldwide.
National Night Out is designed to:
– Heighten crime and drug prevention awareness;
– Generate support for, and participation in, local anticrime programs;
– Strengthen neighborhood spirit and police-community partnerships; and
– Send a message to criminals letting them know that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
