May 9, 2015 Upcoming White Elephant Sale

posted Mar 3, 2015, 12:07 PM by Westbury Civic Club President

The Spring White Elephant Sale will be on Saturday, May 9, from 8AM to Noon at Westbury United Methodist Church.  The rain date is May 16.


Booth space will go on sale at 8AM on Wednesday, April 1, for individual
Westbury residents ONLY*. 
The WCC office will be open early at 8AM on April 1 only and close at 2PM.   The office will also be open from 5-7PM on April 1 for booth space purchase.  Booths may be purchased during normal office hours of 9:30AM to 2:30PM starting on April 2.


You must be a paid current member of the Westbury Civic Club to purchase a booth.  This means you must have paid your 2015 WCC membership dues of $40.  If you have not paid your 2015 dues, you may do so at the same time that you purchase your booth space.  The booth price for individual
Westbury residents will be $20-$25.


Booths will go on sale to non-residents and groups/non-profit organizations on April 27 if space permits on a first come, first serve basis. The booth price for non-residents and groups is $60-65. 


The Westbury White Elephant Sale allows residents the opportunity to sell unwanted household items at a highly visible central location with security provided.  The WCC provides location, security, bathrooms and publicity for the sale.  The Civic Club does NOT provide tables, chairs or shade. 
Garage, Estate, yard, moving sales, etc. are not permitted at Westbury residences. 


So why not have fun, make money, be safe and be a good neighbor.                                                               Plan on having a booth at the Westbury White Elephant Sale!


*Due to limited space and increased interest by homeowners, only individual homeowners may purchase booth space in September.  Non-residents and ALL non-profit organizations and groups (including Westbury resident run) must wait until April 27. Violators of this policy may not be allowed to participate in the current and/or future White Elephant Sales.  All non-profit organizations and groups must register under their organization name.  No individual may purchase a booth for a group or organization unless doing so under that organization’s name.



February11, Weds at 6:30PM at the Platou Community Center

Wednesday, February 11 at 630PM at the Platou Community Center, 11655 Chimney Rock, District K and Public Works will be holding a public meeting to answer any questions residents have about the ongoing Wastewater(Sewer) line replacement project. Lines are being replaced as per the attached map in parts of Westbury 4, Westbury South and Westbury 3 (Cartagena).

District K likes to host these ... View more meetings when there is work so that residents will know the scope of the project, the completion date, backyard access, etc. If you live on the affected streets you are encouraged to attend.

Last CIP meeting we made a plea about our issues with sewage problems and all of Westbury's wastewater lines were scheduled to be evaluated. It is good to see this work being done.

Homeowners should have notified either by mail or door hangers.

WHS has a great administration, wonderful teachers, a vigorous academic plan with AP courses required, and an incredible student body. Let’s give them the campus they deserve and that we voted for in 2012. There are ways you can support the school today.

Here is what the principal has to say: “Westbury is an AWSOME place. The students are awesome and so are the parents. We are making progress every single day.  We had our first back to school bash, winter festival, cross country event that was out of this world, a big event for middle school track coming in February, and our fine art programs that continue to flourish every time they step onto the stage. Auto-tech and debate are considered to be among the best in the district and respected around the State of Texas. Our scholars just need a chance to shine, have pride in themselves, and understand they are important to us.”

The February Crier devotes 5 pages to WHS.  See how you can join the effort to support WHS.   https://docs.google.com/a/westburycrier.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=d2VzdGJ1cnljcmllci5jb218Y2l2aWNjbHVifGd4OjEzN2QxMWRkYTllYzM2NGI

Immediate need for VIPS (see page 8). It’s easy, sign up online and then go to the school with your TDL to finish registering.

  1. Help during tutorials on almost any Saturday  in Math, Science, English, History.

  2. $5.00 gift cards to McDonalds, Burger King, Subway for tutorial incentive give aways.

  3. Mentors to check in on students who are struggling maybe once a week or once every two weeks. This could be a quick lunch at school and talk about things or coming to one of these scholar’s activities to support them.

Tell HISD that You Want Westbury High School to Become a School of Choice and that You support Campus Expansion

posted Nov 4, 2014, 8:19 PM by Westbury Civic Club President

Check out the Hot Topics tab for more information!

The HISD Board of Trustees, during closed session next week on November 13, will be discussing the bond scope for Westbury High School - specifically the fate of a campus expansion for WHS that HISD has already begun and had promised to continue as part of the 2012 Bond Program (land acquisition).  The fate of the WHS campus expansion is at serious risk.  


1. An online petition has been prepared to show support for WHS to become a School of Choice and to support Campus Expansion.    We hope that you will sign it as an endorsement of support AND also help us spread the petition link as fast as possible.  Here is the link to the petition:   http://goo.gl/UX7nyo

We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!  December 3rd is Giving Tuesday and we have partnered with Network for Good to fundraise to Save the 7 acre Westbury Community Garden. 

We want to raise at least $50,000 by December 31 to help us buy our leased 7-acre Westbury Community Garden site. If we don’t buy the land, then it will be paved over by the owner for an apartment complex.  

Our goal is to rescue this award-winning garden to keep it public and green. We ask for your help. We need money AND we need to spread the word about our effort. Total cost of the land is more than $500,000.


Please donate today. Donations are tax-deductible.  






 The December Crier will be delivered on the 7th and the online version will be available December 3, 2013.
