HOW CAN WE HELP EACH OTHER?
A cup of sugar, a ride to the store.
a call for help, an open door.
Babysit your small ones
be they feathered, furred, or kid*,
the Westsiders are always ready...
to chase down some goats, I mean OMG, they run like the wind!
Yeah, this is the community that brought you the annual "Running of the Goats". We're like that.
FOOD & EATS
We're working on providing links and services within the Westside Community... but we're a work in progress. Boasting over 45 excellent restaurants in the area, we're making national headlines!
The WAC residents started the expansion of the Westside tree canopy south of 12th Street on Banklick Ave., helping to plant over 250 trees, after the City embraced an invasive Bradford Pear irradiation program. With the City Arborist leading the way, the Westside raised thousands of dollars and continued "The Right Tree for the Right Place" mantra, and helped plant more than 200 more in the last 4 years.
