It’s been a busy summer with lots of fun events happening in the West End.
The West End Summer Picnic and BBQ was a friendly and relaxed gathering of friends and neighbors. This year, we started the event off with our first ever Bicycle Parade. From the Hennepin Crawler to Todd Barricklow’s Two Penny bicycle to festive, decorated bicycles- it was an exciting of collection self-propelled wheeled objects. For photos of the event, Click Here! Thanks goes to Western Farm for use of their huge BBQ and the hay bales and to Bob Bertolini for always taking good care of us. Guy Dean and Heather Rosales for slaving over the hot grill.

West End Summer Bocce has been a great success in spite of cooler than expected evenings. Last week, La Palmarcito Market treated everyone to their wonderful cerviche and salsa. David Farish, of Krank Boom Clank, amused one and all (but the dogs) with another mutant ride-able sculptures of delight named Murray the Fish. Remember, Bocce is every Friday night at DeMeo Park.

CHOP’s Teen Club Summer Art Gala was an impressive collection of teen art and talent. The art displayed was by the Side by Side Professional Art Series which teamed professional artists with teens. The great food was catered by CHOP’S catering crew. It was a enjoyable event and excellent opportunity to see everything CHOP’s offers. For Photos Click Here!
