Volunteerism and sup­port from the busi­ness com­mu­nity are what make Western Welcome Week a suc­cess year after year. The goal of Western Welcome Week is to nur­ture com­mu­nity spirit, bring together res­i­dents and busi­nesses, to sup­port ser­vice clubs and non­profits by cre­ating an oppor­tu­nity for fundraising, and to pro­vide fes­tiv­i­ties and enter­tain­ment for fam­i­lies, friends and neigh­bors. In plan­ning Western Welcome Week, the board pledges to remain open to new ideas, respect past tra­di­tions and be aware of present day needs with a vision for tomorrow.
