Ontario Park Cookout

Ontario Park Cookout Photos

Westview neighbors got together to hold the second annual Ontario Park Cookout this past Saturday. Burgers, hot dogs and chickens were cooking on the grill, drinks in ice tubs provided refreshment, old Oaks trees provided shade during the swelling summer heat, and our beautiful neighborhood provided the backdrop. The Westview Community Organization made up the backbone of the event with support from police to close off the roads, the fire stations for providing seating, local politicians, candidates, and neighbors donations to provide the food and drink. The cookout provided a great opportunity for residents to meet other neighbors, or to mingle with existing friends. Children were enjoying chalk drawing on the street, water balloons games, and jump rope. There was even a glimpse of the occasional hard working new homeowner breaking away from renovation work to enjoy the community gathering.

We are less than two weeks away to our June 27th cookout! Thanks SO much for all the neighboors who really have been helping to get this together (see your shout out below). We do still need volunteers for some upcoming things. There are a lot of ways you can support, and the cookout will not be succesful without it, so please help where you can!


1. Donations
We are really short on donations. Last year neighbors provided most of the items needed. Right now we don’t have enough donations or money to pull of the cookout. Please contribute what you can.

The park is where East & West Ontario and Stokes Avenues come together. The WCO will supply trash bags but we ask you to bring your own gloves, shovels, and any other tools you might want. We will decide on exactly what areas to tackle at the day of the event. If we have a lot of volunteers, we’ll get more areas cleaned up. For more info, please contact Scott at 404-752-6423.

3. Pass Out Fliers
We need to pass out fliers to the neighborhood this weekend. We will start passing them out after the clean-up on Saturday, about 10:30 am. If you want fliers for your street, just contact me and I can drop them off.

4. Help Pickup Furniture Day Of
Firestation #17 and other neighbors are gracious enough to donate chairs and tables. We need neighbors with pickup trucks who can help collect the furniture and deliver to Ontario Park on June 27.

5. Got a Tent?
It may rain that day, and we would like to get a tent for backup.

We need neighbors who will help setup the food, tables, and chairs on the morning of June 27. We will do setup from 8:00 – 11:00 am.

Westview Neighborhood Cookout

The first annual Westview Neighborhood Cookout was held this past Saturday at Ontario Park. It was a huge success! Neighbors, police officers, firefighters, and local politicians were all in attendance. The community raised substantial funds and gathered donations to make it possible. There was food, music, games for the kids, and lots of great dialog. If you missed it this year make sure to catch it next year!
