Full Moon Tour and Other Exciting Events

Dear West End Neighbors,

Full Moon Tour

Full Moon Tour 
The Full Moon Tour was a wonderful event. West End residents, friends and new aquaintances were treated to a tour of the West End in the 40s. Everyone was surprised to meet up with West End restaurant and legend, Lena Blake Bonfigli who told us a little about life in the neighborhood during the war. After an aromatic tour of Franco American Bakery, we ended the evening at Toad in the Hole where we socialized and listened to the accordion stylings of Amber Lee Baker (soon to be West End resident- welcome Amber!)

For those of you who ordered shirts, they are on the way and we will let you know when they are in.

Santa Rosa Pugs “Howl-O-Ween”
The Santa Rosa Pugs “Howl-O-Ween” party was a the De Turk Round Barn on Sunday. It was a delightful party of costumed dogs. West End resident Chug Coleman-Jones won first place in the costume contest- his costume was designed by his grandma Marge!

Railroad Scare
Don’t forget Railroad Scare, a well-loved Halloween event in Railroad Square. It’s this Saturday, October 25th 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There’s a children’s parade, dog parade and scarecrow contest. It’s a lots of fun.
