I'm Proud to Represent Westfield

From the quiet of Stanley Park to the thousands who attend Taste of the world. From the ethnic church picnics to the Veterans ceremonies in Parker Park.

The Athenaeum, and Children's Library. And the Kiwanis auction.

The Children's Museum. And youth baseball, Babe Ruth, and Little League. Especially the 1,500-kid Little League parade. (When it doesn't rain.) High school football games and Fourth of July fireworks.

Fourth of July parades in Wyben and Hampton Ponds. The Peanut Bowl reunion. Take Back the Night.

Noble Hospital ball. Memorial Day parade. Veterans Day at Apremont Park.

The Chamber Sparkplugs' Pancake Breakfast on the green, and four Chamber breakfasts a year.

The Barnes Airport open house. Auto show at Barnes. New mess hall and the arrival of helicopters at the Air National Guard.

Westfield State College and its schedule of sports, cultural, musical and social events. Graduation under the tent. Even if you don't know anyone.

Good lunches at Westfield Voke. The fishing derby at the Westfield Sportsmans Club. Trick and treating. Westfield Day at the Big E.

The Westfield Theater Group presentations. Westfest in May. Taste of the World in August. Stanley Park's concerts every Sunday during the summer.

Camp Shepard. Kamp for Kids. The Boys and Girls Club activities. The YMCA. Shaker and Tekoa and East Mountain.

St. John's sauerkraut suppers, church picnics, St. Joseph's fall festival that no one can spell. The Strawberry Festival.

St. Patrick's Day at the Sons of Erin. Whip City Speedway. Center of Hope.

Interfaith services on the green and in Stanley Park. And, Thanksgiving too. Western Hampden Historical Society meetings and Grange Hall suppers. Citizens Scholarship Award ceremony.

Red Cross person of the year and auction evening. Cub Scout flag raising ceremonies for Flag Day. The Veterans programs in the schools.

Cozy Corner. Noble Hospital's health programs. Grandmother's Garden. And the Zonta auction. Canoe races. Bicycle races.

The Westfield Fair. Meetings of the Democratic City Committee and the Republican City Committee. Abe Lincoln Day breakfast. Political campaigns.

Elks, Eastern Star, League of Women Voters, AA, Overeaters Anonymous, Toastmasters, Womans Club and a few hundred others.

Watch them build Food Mart, CVS, Applebee's or School Street Bistro.

But, you say, there's nothing going on in Westfield.

I'm proud to represent Westfield.
