We loved yesterday’s profile acknowledging the 75th anniversary of Charter Oak Communities – describing Fairgate as looking like “the set for a movie about an idyllic suburb.” (Nice in a week in which our city was also ranked in the Top 100 “most livable” mid-sized cities in the US.)
We’re happy to welcome George to our West Side neighborhood, where he will be available to work with business owners (and those who want to be) looking to expand or improve business. As Business Specialist for the Women’s Business Development Council (WBDC – and they help men too!), George coordinates outreach to Minority Business Enterprises (MBE), entrepreneurs and provides program development. Fluent in both English and Spanish, George will have office hours in the community room at the Fairgate Community Center (9 Fairgate Drive) every Wednesday, 10-3. Feel free to stop by – or call for an appointment: 818-470-3377.

What’s new at the WS NRZ?
Old Friends: Ray Bowling, owner of United Housewrecking (which started out on the West Side before moving to its much larger location on Hope Street) shares memories of the good old days on Stillwater Avenue with Anthony Pellicci of Pellicci’s Restaurant. The two men have known one another more than 50 years!
