Town Criers make donation in honor of Mr. and Mrs. Westlake
Connecting for Kids and the Cleveland Animal Protective League each received $250 from the Westlake Town Criers in the names of 2020’s Mr. and Mrs. Westlake, Andrew and Christine Mangels.
Andrew, who is the director of Westlake Porter Public Library, selected Connecting for Kids, a Westlake-based nonprofit that is dedicated to helping families that have a concern about their child’s development and holds many of their programs at the library. Christine, a nurse case manager and avid cat lover, selected the Cleveland Animal Protective League because of the great work they do providing shelter to homeless animals relinquished by their guardians, animals that are rescued from abuse or neglect, and stray or abandoned cats.
Since 1955, the Westlake Town Criers have celebrated one couple that have best served the people of Westlake in a positive and outstanding manner. In 2021 the honor went to Mike and Delicia Ostrowski.
The Westlake Town Criers is an organization comprised of men dedicated to aid and assist worthy causes within the city of Westlake and meets the first and third Monday of every month at the FOP 25 Hall, 26145 Center Ridge Road. The fellowship time starts at 7:00 p.m. with the meeting starting at 8:00 p.m.
Rick Grane is a longstanding member of the Town Criers.
