Westy Weekly Aug 6, 2015


I sincerely hope you are all enjoying this amazing weather today. We have been extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful span of great conditions outside lately, I just can’t be happier with it.

This past Tuesday, we had our Alumni BBQ and were in the company of some of the most honored Westland Jaycees Alumni, Senators, and Ambassadors in our history. It was a great pleasure to be able to enjoy the weather, all of your company, and even do a little song and dance to reclaim my gavel from Noreen. Good one! Ill need to keep up my game to ensure I can keep it safe til December. We also swore in TWO new Members! James Willingham and Brennen LaPere! Welcome to the Westy Boys!

Breaking News – Damian is trying to start a Softball team and has asked any interested parties, to be at the Jaycee Park today at 6PM

As you all know, we have a lot of things coming up, so lets do a quick dive into them;

This Saturday is the Family Fun Day at VP Markonni’s. Please be sure to respond to the FB invite whether you are in or out so she can plan accordingly.

Aug 14-15 is the Blues, Brews, and BBQ / All American BBQ Throwdown. Please fill out the volunteer form and try to fill in the few gaps that are left. We also need to field at least six more teams for the Throwdown. If you know someone, get them to participate. This will no doubt be a blast and a good way to support the event! Sign up is EASY and only $20 to compete. The Eventbrite signup is https://www.eventbrite.com/e/all-american-bbq-throwdown-tickets-17921995170
