Westy Weekly 9 Jul 2015


This week has been busy! City Council Meeting, GMM, poker rooms, and our car show is this weekend! I would like to go and say THANK YOU to all that have volunteered to help staff the room. Its not easy, but its one of the few ways we have to fund our mission to enrich the lives of the membership and citizens in our area.

For those that could not make it to the Jul GMM, I would like to again congratulate our most recent presidential pin award winner, Sammy Willingham. A shining example of Strength through Service! Thank you for all that you do!

This Saturday is the CAR SHOW! Are you a car enthusiast or do you know one? Bring them to the car show at Westland Bowl on the 11th. We will have awards and things to do! Registration fee is $5 per car and you get a great spot to look at the cars at the show as well as the cruise. Were also going to have the US Army activity trailer there, so don’t miss out. Its free to non car show participants and you only need the $5 to register your car for the show if you are participating in the car show event itself. We will also need volunteers to sell raffle tickets, bottled water, and man the registration / information booth.

Our first Veterans Day Committee meeting is 7pm, this coming Monday, July 13th at Ashley’s. Its time to get this thing moving at full speed. If you would like to be on the committee or have some valid input, meet us there.

The All American BBQ Throwdown is getting ready to go into full gear. Remember to keep an eye out for more details and remember to put the word out. Registration is only $20!
The Veterans Day 5K registration Page is now Open and available. Register now! http://www.westlandareajaycees.org/westland-area-jaycees-veterans-day-5k/

Don’t Forget, the Ice Cream for Eric Fundraiser is on the 14th of Jul. This is a fundraiser to help cover the funeral costs for a local boy who sadly drowned a few weeks ago at a local state park. Adults are $5 and children are $3. We will be hosting the event at the Wayne Ford Civic League beginning at 6pm and running til 9PM. Please come out, bring some friends, and help support this project.
