This year marks the 75th anniversary of this little piece of paradise we call Westchester. From bean fields and farmland, Westchester has grown into a thriving neighborhood with a world-class airport, prestigious universities and a sense of community unrivaled by even the smallest close-knit towns. Whether you’re lucky enough to live here, work here or own a business here, it’s easy to fall in love with this community whose unofficial motto is “a small town feel within a big city,” where everyone knows their neighbor and is working together for the greater good.
In honor of this milestone birthday, a Westchester 75th Anniversary Committee made up of residents, local business owners and community leaders has been created and is hard at work planning commemorative events to celebrate the occasion. While the LAX Coastal Chamber’s Fourth of July Parade served as the kick-off for anniversary festivities, there are many more events on the way! The HomeTown News will be your official source for Westchester 75 events so keep an eye on your community newspaper, every first Thursday of the month! The October issue will be a special edition dedicated to all things Westchester.
To better help create a year full of anniversary events and activities, the Westchester 75th Anniversary Committee is looking to partner with local organizations, nonprofits and businesses that wish to participate in the celebration.
