West Hills sets celebration

All are invited to a celebration in West Hills Park on Thursday, Dec. 1, from 5-7 p.m. with a food truck and a visit from Santa in the Gazebo.

Anne Crais reports: “Also, the second annual Tour de Lights will be happening that same evening about 6 p.m. when all are asked to decorate their bikes and even themselves with Christmas lights and ride or walk the 0.8 mile loop through the park. Last year, we had about 95 participants and about 200 in attendance. We would love to have even more attend this year.”

A new bulletin board kiosk has been added in the West Hills Park on the greenway near Sheffield Drive. The kiosk was built with funds from the West Hills Community Association – to be reimbursed in January because we were awarded a Challenge Grant from the city office of Parks and Recreation. Healthy West Hills events and events for the neighborhood will be posted.

West Hills Elementary students have formed a drama club, directed by William Bennet. The Wolfpack Company will present Frozen on December 8 and 9 at 6 p.m., and December 10 at 2 p.m. The Company is composed of kids in grades 3-5.
