West End Events-This week

Jul 8, 2009 in Bocce, Events

One of the best things about living in the West End is that there are so many fun things to do and they are all within walking distance.

Mark your calendars! West End Neighborhood Annual BBQ at DeMeo Park is on July 18th, Saturday at 3 p.m. Bring a dish to share. Hamburgers, hot dogs, beverages, plates and silverware will be provided by the Association. How would you like to volunteer? We need a BBQ master, folks to help set up ( at 2 p.m.) and to break down after the picnic. Is anyone one able to set up children’s activities and games? All volunteers can call Allen Thomas (707) 477-8422
