FEBRUARY 2000
EDITOR NOTES
You've probably noticed some changes to the business cards adorn the 
periphery of the newsletter.  Some of the businesses moved to another part 
of 
town, others simply closed and the rest ( a very 
small number) decided not to advertise for this calendar year.  The 
remaining 
businesses (51), not only provide valuable revenue to produce our 
newsletter, 
but are a vital part of the West End 
neighborhood and Winston-Salem.  The next time you are buying flowers at 
Price Davis Florist, taking "Muffy" to the Boulevard Animal Hospital or 
renting the latest French film from West End Video, 
take a minute to thank these businesses and do the same at any of the 
other 
West End businesses that support the newsletter and our neighborhood.
Also, I haven't received any calls or e-mail from anyone interested in 
becoming the new editor of the West Ender.  I realize the recent bad 
weather 
has kept you worrying whether Harris Teeter is 
stocking large amounts of bread and milk - however, WE NEED YOUR HELP!   
My 
last issue is in March and the West End needs a dynamic individual with a 
keen wit to continue this endeavor.  I will 
assist the next editor for the first their couple of months and provide 
ongoing assistance as needed.  Give me a call at 722-9804.
NOTES FROM THE JANUARY MEETING
Thanks to all those who contributed both time and money to make the West 
End 
Community Fund Campaign a successful event!  The Historic District Signs 
will 
be installed as soon as the weather permits, 
and the Period Clock has been ordered for Grace Court.  Expect to see the 
Clock installed early this summer.  
Dan Falken presented the Treasurer's report and the status of the 
Community 
Fund
The West End Association Meeting is February 1st 7:30PM - 8:45PM at 
Brunson 
Elementary School cafeteria.  This is the annual meeting, so elections for 
the Board will be held, and dues for next year 
should be paid.


It's time to start planning for the Y2K Holiday House Tour.  At the 
February 
meeting, we will be asking for a volunteer to head this bi-annual event.  
It's a wonderful showcase for our neighborhood, 
and a great way to get to know your neighbors.  We would love to see some 
fresh new faces - a Tour Chair-person and committee chairs are needed.  
(There will be plenty support from tour veterans!)  
Homeowners, please start thinking about whether you would like to put your 
house on the tour!
Bill Wise spoke about FIRST and West End Court Construction.  At this 
writing, the FIRST situation has been resolved - they did not get approval 
to 
increase the number of tenants.  The West End Court 
problem is still being resolved.
The Board voted to provide the Women's Club with $500.00 for a consultant 
to 
determine the renovation procedures and costs for their structure.
Three officers from the Winston-Salem police department attended and gave 
their incident report.

Reynolda House, Museum of American Art
I recently got a call from Judith Smith with the Reynolda House.  The 
Museum 
of American Art is sponsoring a four week Saturday morning series on 
Turn-of-the Century Household decoration taught by 
curator, Joyce K Schiller.  The four sessions meet consecutively and you 
can 
come to one session or all four.  This is an excellent opportunity to for 
West Enders to observe how our homes might have 
looked in the early 20th century.  The four sessions are $15.00 or $5.00 
per 
lecture.  For reservations and information, call Randi Teague at 725-5325
