West End Neighborhood Association Plans Summer
The West End Neighborhood Association has released a list of activities and events scheduled this summer. The next regular meeting of the group is Wednesday, July 12, 6:30 p.m. at the Reiche Community Center on Brackett Street.
WENA welcomes anyone with a vested interest in the West End. For more information, please visit the Association's website at .

Among the events planned are:
Planning for Community Design Workshop - August 10, 5 p.m. at Reiche
West End Beautification Day - August 12, 9 a.m. - noon, meet at Reiche
WENA picnic - August 12, noon - 3 p.m., at Harbor View Memorial Park
Community Design Workshop - September 30 at Reiche (time TBA)

Community Design Workshop is now set for Saturday, September 30...Start and end times not yet definite but tentatively 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. The purpose of the workshop is the development of a master plan for Reiche Community Center based upon the needs and priorities of neighborhood residents and other stakeholders. Planners are working hard to design registration and other advance materials; to find sponsors, both corporate and private; and to solicit in-kind donations for items such as food, supplies and printing. If you can help in any way--by joining the CDW planners, by becoming a sponsor or by making a donation--please attend either or both of the meetings noted above. Let's work together to ensure a positive future for our own Reiche Community Center!

West End Beautification Day will provide a second opportunity for the neighborhood clean-up activities that were largely rained out on Healthy Community Day (June 3)...but many thanks to those who turned out to help despite the rain! Volunteers will gather Saturday, August 12, 9 a.m., for coffee and danish, courtesy of Starbucks, then work in teams to clean West End parks and other areas. Fun, food and prizes! Clean-up will be followed by WENA's second annual picnic at Harbor View Memorial Park, noon - 3 p.m. Please bring a side dish to go with the hot dogs, hamburgers and cold beverages that will be available. Rain date is the following Saturday, August 19, but we're expecting a beautiful day and a great turnout, just like last year, so mark your calendars!
