The City of Westlake was pleased to present special Over 90 Birthday Proclamations to residents who have lived on this Earth for more than nine decades on April 30, 2021.
Since the City was unable to host its usual Over 90 Birthday Luncheon due to the pandemic, Westlake Community Services Director Lydia Gadd and Outreach Coordinator Donna Feorene personally delivered the Proclamations, signed by Mayor Dennis M. Clough, to each recipient. The seniors also received gourmet cupcakes courtesy of Brookdale Senior Living.
It was the second year in a row the City brought these proclamations to residents' doorsteps in lieu of an in-person event.
