The South Talladega Relay for Life Summit took place on May 13th at Central Park. Westview's area was decorated as a train to reinforce our T-shirt message, "All Aboard! Cruising the tracks for a cure." A lot of time and effort went into building our "train." Thanks to all involved. Our fundraising efforts really paid off this year--our most successful yet. All help, donations, time were very appreciated.
The Westview Relay for Life Cruise-In on April 30th was a successful fundraiser and brought vehicles from near and far, including some great classic cars and trucks, as well as recently minted models. Thanks to all who participated! Pictures of all these wonderful vehicles are available here.
On Sunday evening, March 20th, our children's choir, "The Songbirds," performed for the enjoyment of parents, grandparents, relatives and friends. "Patricia Cotton's Tale" was this year's production and highlighted God's forgiveness. Once again, a wonderful performance by our youngsters. Please view more pictures at this link.
Due to rainy weather on March 19th, our Easter Egg Hunt was once again held indoors but that did nothing to subtract from the fun of the hunt! Eggs were found in plain eyesight, discreetly tucked away, and--apparently--hidden under furniture! Afterward there were goodies to eat, candy for all, and the telling of The Easter Story to share the true meaning of the day. More pictures located here.
As usual, our Christmas fellowship on December 20th was loaded with wonderful food and lots of laughs over "How NOT to make a Fruitcake" and drawing on a paper plate on top of your head! Then add an ugly shirt contest. And the next time we play the right-left game, there will definitely be a video!
Ready to mix up a great recipe!
Can you find the Christmas tree, star, package, mantel and stockings?

We had an unusual "Trunk of Treats" this Halloween--we were forced inside due to rain--we decorated tables instead of cars! The turnout was good, contact was made, and lots of candy was dispensed! More pictures posted.
