Dear WS Village Neighbor / Friend,

Happy Independence Day and Happy Birthday United States of America!

Just a few items for this day of celebration. We are experimenting with other ways to get these type messages to you. You may receive a random test message as we try to and improve our ability to communicate and continue to protect your email information.

Lasagna Dinner - hosted by the Village West Vikings Swim Team, Saturday, 13 July from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. Our neighborhood swim team's lasagna dinner fundraiser is back again!  This year's dinner will be held at the pool on Saturday, 13 July with three seatings: 5 PM, 6 PM and 7 PM.  Take a load off and enjoy a delicious Italian dinner while our neighborhood teenagers serve you a nice meal! Open to all in the village and in Rolling Valley subdivision as well.
This year's prices are as follows - adults meals are $8, kids under 12 eat for only $4, and we have an ABC banquet license that permits us to sell wine, which will be $2 per glass.  Kiddos who aren't into lasagna will have a mac and cheese option. All meals also include non-alcoholic beverages, bread and brownie dessert. Reservations are strongly encouraged - you can sign up on the pool's events page:

The Village Idoits - Did you know that we have a semi – amateur softball team? Here’s a recent picture of the Village Idoits wearing their unconventional softball (bowling) shirts. Yes – the bowling shirts and spelling of their team name was and is intentional. Note that all in the picture are standing upright; a rarity I’m told since they are prone to being injured during games and practices.

Glass Recycling – Bill & Carrie Mast, 6805 Landor Lane are willing to accept your glass bottles, haul them to the purple container at West Springfield Government Center or to the I-95 Landfill to convert them back into a useful product instead of adding more to the landfill. We did not see the purple bin yesterday at the West Springfield Government Center, but it is to be spotted there this week.
