A pop-up party and holiday market was held in the Westview Village. The festivities followed the annual Westview Community Organization’s holiday luncheon, providing neighbors another opportunity to gather in the evening over potluck food, libations, and browsing artwork, décor, and more, while listening to local DJ Earl The Third.
On Saturday, December 17, 2016, the Westview Community Organization held its annual holiday potluck at Fire Station 17. Neighbors brought dishes to share with neighbors and enjoy each others company. Some of the fire fighters were able to join in for the festivities during the meal, and as is tradition, the leftover food was left for the fire fighters to enjoy at a later time.

On Saturday, December 12, 2015, the Westview Community Organization held its annual holiday potluck at Fire Station 17. As always, the food brought by neighbors was delicious and gobbled up while neighbors enjoyed each others company.

West End residents had the idea to host the Great West End Holiday Cookie Swap and Tree Lighting in a public park; however, due to lengthy permitting requirements neighbors had to improvise. The solution: place the tree on private property! And so the new Coffee House at historic Fire Station 17 in Westview came to the rescue by hosting the event. A fundraiser was held to collect the money for a tree and decorations. Donation overages were split up with 30% going towards People of the Way Community Coffee House, 35% going towards supporting local families in need, and 35% going towards future community events.
The rules for the cookie swap were: bring 36 or more cookies, eat cookies, brag about your cookies, pack a variety of cookies to take home…and then kick off the holiday season with the lighting of the Christmas tree and caroling. While we’re afraid to calculate the number of calories that were consumed that evening we would like you to enjoy the photos of the evening’s events.
