There's a new sheriff in Dodge...

West End residents are trying to bring together concerned neighbors to share ideas on how to improve the quality of life in our community.

For their first initiative the rapidly expanding organization is setting their sights on Irish Day and how to strike a balance to ensure that the festivities do not negatively impact local residents. The West End community has been trying to mitigate Irish Day issues for years to no avail.

But as anthropologist Margaret Meade has so eloquently stated: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful committed people can change the world; indeed it's the only thing that ever has."

Fran Adelson, the new City Council President, has advised the group to attend the Long Beach Listens meeting on Monday, February 20 at 7:30PM at the West End Community Center (changed from the fire house due to better handicapped access)

WEBA is delighted that more and more West Enders are recognizing the need to create a meaningful voice for our beautiful community. Please attend the Long Beach Listens meeting to add yours.
