Thanksgiving Week

Nov 20, 2012 in Entertainment, Events, Holiday, Miscellany

Happy Thanksgiving! There’s so much to be grateful for when you live in the West End. The DeMeo Park Cleanup was an outstanding event. West End Neighbors and Boy Scout Troop 509 raked up masses of leaves, cleaned off the sidewalks and got the park ready for winter. Thank you to everyone who participated and to Marge Jones who organized the whole thing.
