Congratulations to all the graduates of 2023! I have the opportunity each year to provide lunch to the 5th grade graduates during their park day at the end of the school year. This year we got to be at the newly renovated Westwood Park, and it was a great experience. The kids were having a great time, especially on the new obstacle course, and at the basketball courts. A couple weeks before that, the WJ HS Football team spent a long morning at all the parks, planting flowers, mulching, and moving gravel. Every single one of those kids worked hard, and did a great job. I am really proud of this next, great generation.
I am also proud of all the great things we are able to offer this community. We have first-class parks, a great program that is repaving and renovating the streets and sidewalks, and wonderful summertime activities for the whole community. We try to have events that the whole family can enjoy, but we are always interested in new ideas. If you have a good one, give me a call, and we can chat!
Have a great June.
