July 1999


The June meeting was held at St. Paul's Episcopal Church on Summit Street. They presented n their plans for enlarging the existing structure and modifying the size of the adjoining parking lot. (They plan to add greenspace to the lot and redo the lines to add more parking spaces. Take note YMCA!) The proposed additions will have some similarities to the old and will be a real benefit to the community. For more information, contact the church at 723-4391

The Fourth Street ???? aka Shobers, will be open in a few weeks. Also, the old West End Cafe is undergoing major renovations - rumor is it will be a "diner" style restaurant with pizza by the slice and other tasty treats! More later.

The next meeting of the West End Association will be Tuesday, July 13th 1999 at Grace Court
from 7:00 to 8:45. Everyone is invited. A West End thank you to Kay Morgan and Brunson Elementary School for letting us use their facility. We will meet there again in the fall.

West End Association Community Fund Campaign

The West End Association board of directors has authorized a $28,000 capital campaign for the signage and the town clock. $15,000 from previous fund raising efforts has been committed to this project, and a fund raising campaign is being launched to raise the remaining $13,000. Neighborhood residents, friends of the Association, companies, and foundations will be asked to participate in this effort to build a broad base of support and to involve as many citizens as possible. All donors will be recorded within the time capsule.

The West End is more than a historic district for the city of Winston-Salem. The neighborhood is one of the last remaining strongholds of residential living in a downtown that is struggling to define itself. Through its extended efforts such as the recent Burke Street beautification project or its investment in other downtown allies, such as a recent gift to the YWCA, the West End is positioned to continue to advance the cause of downtown economic and cultural development.

The Community Campaign is a critical step in the next phase of the life of West End and of the greater community. The historic signage and vintage town clock will add greatly to the efforts to enhance the downtown. They will offer tourists a clearly marked scenic, picturesque, glimpse of life during the early 20th century in a town that was booming into what was for a period the state's largest community. The campaign offers downtown planners something to build upon as they develop an identity for Winston-Salem. Most importantly, it offers residents another sign of the comfortable, affordable quality of life in the West End, unparalleled in Winston-Salem and neighboring cities.
