Meet the Mayor of Westerville
Neighborhood program begins in April

Westerville Mayor Craig Treneff is hosting a series of neighborhood meetings to connect with residents, answer questions and hear feedback on City of Westerville programs and services. Residents will receive postcards notifying them of their neighborhood meeting date and time as their event draws near.

The first meeting will be held for Annehurst-area residents on Wednesday, April 4 at 6:30 p.m. at the Annehurst Elementary gymnasium, 925 W. Main St.

A major function of these “Meet the Mayor” sessions will be discussing new initiatives. Topics include:

WESTERVILLE SAFE: An emerging City effort to develop or enhance programs for those in need, including victims of domestic violence and human trafficking.

NEIGHBORHOODS: The City is looking closely at housing and how best to support its neighborhoods. We want your thoughts on protecting property values and existing housing stock, as well as meeting future needs.

KINDNESS AND CIVILITY: In light of programs like Neighborhood Bridges, Neighbor2Neighbor and Otterbein University’s Kindness Matters campaign, what more can we do to improve community relationships at the neighborhood level?

Learn more about City Council and provide feedback about City issues at www.westerville.org/council.

We are Annehurst!

The Annehurst Village Residents Association is saddened to hear that our neighborhood has been the target of hate crime. We do not support any individual or organization that seeks to intimidate anyone due to race, class, age, ability, sexual identity, or religious belief. We recognize that any action like this is a threat to the well-being our community and is unwelcome, fully rejected, and has no place in Annehurst.

Everyone has the right to feel safe in their own home and community. Our slogan is “We are Annehurst!” because we are more than a collection of homes; we are a community. We know our neighborhood is filled with good, caring people. We encourage our residents to look out for one another and make sure everyone is safe and welcome in our community.

ANNEHURST VILLAGE SUMMER EVENTS
June 7th Rankin / Powers Memorial Swim Meet 6PM – 9 PM
Calling all Alumni of the Annehurst Piranha Swim Team to put on a swim suit and come out to celebrate the memory of two young men and former Piranhas who have passed away in the last year. Dustin Powers swam for Piranhas for 13 summers. After graduating from South and Ohio State, he got married and moved to North Carolina. He loved singing and hiking. Dustin passed away January 1, 2016 at age 30. Chad Rankin swam for Piranhas for many summers and later was a Piranhas coach and lifeguard at the pool. After graduating St. Charles he attended Butler University. He loved fishing and the beach. Chad passed away June 7, 2015 at age 21.

We would like this to become an annual homecoming event to remember Chad and Dustin, as well as to reconnect with former Piranhas, fondly remember days of summer’s past and to meet the current team.

This year there will be a fundraising raffle benefiting the swim team of a quilt lovingly created out of donated Piranhas t-shirts by Dustin’s mother, Nancy. Tickets will be available at the Memorial Swim and also available at the pool. Drawing to be held 6/25/2016. We hope to see you at the memorial Swim.
