– Publish the West Ender Newsletter sharing neighborhood news
– Advocate for and protect our National Historic Overlay
– Represent the West End before elected and appointed Winston-Salem/Forsyth county boards
– Sponsor WEA social events for neighbors to get to know each other
– Promote the West End as a great place to live, work, and play
– Provide and maintain the West End List Serve to enhance neighborhood communication

WEA activities during 2013 included:

– Being a sponsor for the RiverRun Film festival
– Donating to a/perture’s theater expansion
– Creating one of the floats in the Winston-Salem Centennial Parade
– 4th of July picnic in Hanes Park
– Providing support for Arts Fest 2013 in Grace Court

The WEA meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at the Central YMCA to discuss neighborhood issues and to conduct Association business. We often have presentations from guests with topics of interest to the neighborhood. The WEA is one of the oldest neighborhood associations in North Carolina. It was founded originally in the late 1960s to prevent a highway from being routed through Hanes Park.
