The Westlake Town Criers is an organization comprised of men dedicated to aid and assist worthy causes within the City of Westlake. Since 1955, the Town Criers have been honoring a couple that have best served the youth and citizens of Westlake in a positive and outstanding manner.
This year we would like to honor Andrew Mangels and his wife, Christine. Andrew is the director of Westlake Porter Public Library. He is “over and above” involved in the community. He belongs to the Westlake Town Criers, the Westlake/Bay Village Rotary and the Westlake Kiwanis. He is not just a member in these groups but has taken on leadership roles. He is a member of the PTA and ran Hilliard’s Field Day for years.
Andrew helped run the Baseball Association. He coordinates the volunteers for Celebrate Westlake. He is president of the board of directors for Connecting for Kids. He is also on the board for the Far West Center. He helped start up a group called “Continuing the Conversation” which brings together the police, schools, library and nonprofit organizations to work on solving the heroin issues in town. The list goes on and on.
