Updated coloring book celebrates Westlake's history

The Westlake Historical Society has updated and reprinted a picture history of Westlake, formerly known as Dover. The Dover Coloring Book was originally created as part of the "Heritage 76" project, published during the 200th birthday celebration of our nation in 1976.

At the end of 2011, the Westlake Historical Society updated and reprinted the coloring book to help celebrate the 200th birthday of Westlake. The goal of the project was to share this historically based book with all second-grade students (and parents) who attend Westlake elementary schools.   

The funds to reprint this coloring book were provided by the Jean A. Robishaw Memorial Fund, as well as the Westlake Historical Society Children's Education fund. Those wishing to purchase a copy of the coloring book may do so by contacting the Westlake Historical Society at 440-808-1961, by email at westlakehistory@yahoo.com, or online at www.westlakeohiohistory.org. The suggested donation for  each book is only $5. The updated cover design was donated by Wendell Design Communications.
