Dues Drive

The Westview Community Organization is currently hosting its 2012 dues drive. Dues are $60 per household for the year, or $24 per senior household for the year. When you pay your dues in full during January you will receive one Westview t-shirt!

You can bring a check payable to the “Westview Community Organization” to the January WCO meeting. If you can’t make it to the meeting you can arrange to drop the check off by emailing or pay online via PayPal.

Dues go to a wide variety of activities designed to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood, so your contribution is greatly appreciated.

Here are just a few things the members of the Westview Community Organization did in 2011:

  • Organized neighborhood clean-ups
  • Planted seasonal plantings in the traffic triangles
  • Worked with Trees Atlanta to plant trees throughout the neighborhood
  • Organized Thanksgiving baskets for the women’s shelter
  • Continued to develop the community garden
  • Developed a program for the neighborhood children
  • Hosted National Night Out
  • Completed a master plan for the neighborhood
  • Hosted the Summer Solstice Celebration
  • Organized an open house event
  • Worked with the police on public safety issues
  • Acquired land to create a new pocket park
  • Partnered with Code Enforcement and non-profits to demolish dilapidated houses

Community Sponsored Dinner

It has become a tradition for the Westview Community Organization, surrounding neighborhood organizations, and NPU-T to sponsor a Thanksgiving Dinner for the seniors at the John O’Chiles senior homes over the years. The homes closed for renovation and have now re-opened as the Atrium-Veranda. The communities have once again come together to provide over 200 seniors with a meal the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Children from the Spelman College Nursery came by to sing to the seniors.
