Westy Weekly March 13th 2015


Hope you are all enjoying this warmer weather. I actually rode around with the windows down a bit yesterday. It was very therapeutic! Ive had Spring Fever since January, so this is very welcome indeed. Don’t forget, Im having a little BBQ this Saturday at 5pm, so if you need an address or details, let me know! Food, music, socializing, meet some new people, and a Bon Fire at night.

This past weekend with the TRU event and it was a resounding success. It was a first event for several of us and we got ourselves a couple new Dealers. HATS OFF to April Hendryx, DJ Campbell, Amy Willingham, Jessica Essa, and Ashley Holland for working your first event, and doing such a phenomenal job!

Last night, the By-Laws Review team poured over the By-Laws as well as Policies. I am pleased to say that we have a pretty good update to send to the board for review, then subsequently to the membership for voting. There will be a follow up email going out soon to let you all know when the By-Law review will be and when you can vote on it. If you are in suspense, this will be at the APR GMM.

Easter Egg-Stravaganza is rapidly approaching. Tickets are on sale at the Mayor’s Office and the Papa Romano’s on Michigan Ave in Wayne. The event runs from 9AM to 1PM and will be loads of fun. We will have Face Painting, Games, Activities, Egg Hunts, and even some breakfast food! Tickets are $2 for Children and $1 for adults. We will need all hands on deck to make this the best event yet! I encourage all who can assist, please call VP Markonni. We are in a funding pinch and we could use all of the help we can get. Candy donations, cash, and physical support are desperately needed and appreciated. There is also a committee meeting scheduled for Monday. Check the Members only page for details.

Once again, The Westland Wild Wings, lead by it’s captain Mayor Wild are set to take the ice again in a much anticipated rematch against the Detroit Red Wing Alumni hockey team at the Westland Mike Modano Ice Arena on Friday, March 20th. The doors open at 5:30 with time to browse merchandise, buy raffle tickets, and have a snack or beer before the puck drops at 7 PM!

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.
