Editor’s Message April 2024

April IssueThis April issue captures the hustle and bustle of all the great things to do at WV. I love browsing the pages and filling up my calendar with events to attend. Grab your calendar and we can look forward to some April fun together!

Check out Mayor Beck’s invite to his State of the City address on April 3 on page 12. The Soles4Souls ad on page 15 is a great charity to clean your closet for–I know I am! On page 17 Helping Hands reminds us as folks go north for the summer, those in town can fill in some gaps and lend a hand. On page 26 and 27 there are several upcoming events and opportunities to jot down or record in your phone calendar—I like doing that.

Congratulations to Mark Branlund for winning the cover photo contest–great job, Mark. He also has another beautiful WV photo he took featured on page 37 in the service directory, so check it out!

I was very honored to have been one of the sponsors for the 18 Hole Couples Member-Guest Invitational (page 27) – what a great event and celebration to be a part of!

I am also wowed by Sherry Hill and her outstanding military career and achievements – make sure to read her story on page 8. All Veterans will want to check out pages 16 and 27 for club opportunities and a WWII veteran opportunity.

The Fine Arts Show was once again a huge success, and it is clear there is no end to the talent in this remarkable community (see page 7). Andrea Tedesco’s stunning piece, “Becoming,” stole hearts–congratulations, Andrea for Best in Show!

This is the most glorious weather-time, so make sure and get out and say hi to your neighbors and find a fun thing or two that you can enjoy! And then, maybe invite your neighbor!

Happy Spring, Westbrook Village!
