Stroll the WPC
Neighborhood: Listen and learn while you walk around the
Center Square Neighborhood Ė the few blocks which
immediately surround Westminster. Harold Ruben, Past
President of the Center Square Neighborhood, and Kathy
Linhardt, a FOCUS breakfast organizer, will lead and narrate
groups during the Second Hour, May 23, starting and ending in
Assembly Hall. Ask your questions about the
concerns of residents. Hear significant history of the area.
Notice changes, deterioration, enhancements and observe
entrepreneurial efforts near WPC. Who lives next to the
church? What key things might Westminster do to be more
involved and helpful in our neighborhood? Itís all
happening May 23 so wear your favorite walking shoes and plan
to be part of the stroll. Those in wheelchairs or
desiring a shorter walk, will experience a shorter trip around
the block with Kathy Linhardt. Anyone eager to explore
further will be guided by Harold Ruben down to the Jay Street
turn around. In the event of rain, pull up a chair in
Assembly Hall to take a verbal tour.
Annual Picnic: Be part
of the fun! Sunday, June 6 everyone will gather for food, fun
and fellowship at the Menands Town Park beginning at noon.

ice, table service and paper products are furnished. You

WPC memories together!
