Woman in critical condition after west end house fire

Homeowner mulls selling to bridge

Stolen Lawnmower - Bridgeview Area

"Hi Fabio, I just wanted you to know that my lawnmower was stolen out of my back yard shed sometime between last Thursday and the week before. It is a black top Tecumseh brand older model and it was just recently fixed, we may have used it once before we noticed it missing last Thursday when I went to cut the grass. It is gas powered and they left the gas container in the shed and just took the mower. I live on Josephine/Grove Ave."

Friends for Atkinson Fundraiser and Askin Ave. Annual Block Party

Over the long weekend I attended both the Friends for Atkinson fundraiser and the Askin Ave. annual block party. 

Friends for Atkinson is a non-profit group of community activists who raise money and help maintain the Atkinson Park located on Riverside and Bridge.  This past Saturday, they held a fundraiser where all the proceeds went towards swimming lessons for kids in the west-end. 

Every year, neighbours on Askin Ave. host a block party that brings together the community -- not only those who live on Askin but also the surrounding neighbourhoods -- where food is shared and guests such as the President of the University of Windsor is in attendance. 

Both events were well attended and convincingly demonstrated the pride many west-ender's take in their community.  And both Friends for Atkinson and the committed neighbours on Askin are great inspirational examples of how a group of people can change the place where they live

After all, these are our streets, our neighbourhoods, …
