West End Bocce & West End Movie Night at DeMeo Park- The weather was kind and thus our last Bocce and Movie night were well attended and enjoyed by all. We took our yearly photo under the Paradox Walnut tree- biggest group ever. Everyone brought food- fresh garden tomatoes, home baked pie, cobbler & cookies, wonderful BBQ meats and more. Lights added a festive glow to the bocce courts and park. Ben Rosales, a professional photographer, took beautiful pictures of the last night. West End Bocce is a special time to gather with friends, family and neighbors. Thanks to Guy Dean, Allen Thomas, Heather Rosales & Kernan Coleman. These folks were the stalwart backbone that always put in an extra effort to make Bocce wonderful for everyone. Paul & Veronica Jordan are the force behind the West End Movie nights.

West End Poodle Party– The DeTurk Round Barn Park’s incredible dog park is a delight for dogs and their owners. Pug Play Day has gathered there for years. The West End Poodle party is a new group that is meeting for doggie socialization. It’s a pretty awesome sight to see a pack of Poodles! We also had other doggie friends- Doodles, Bichons, a Chinese Crested and more. For more dog park photos, Click Here!
3rd Annual Alley Cat Race & Food Drive- In spite of the rain, many gathered at the Toad in the Hole for the Alley Cat Race. Bike riders were given a map and food items to collect- and the race was on! There was a raffle with the biggest prize, a bike, going to Hilary. (A West End newlywed, she’s lucky in love too!) This was another fabulous Kelly Cowan production- the food collected benefited the Redwood Empire Food Bank. For more photos from this event- Click Here!
