Happy Thanksgiving Westmont!

November 24, 2010

It’s been quiet for the past month or so. Rest assured that the NCW has been working behind-the-scenes during that time. With the Christmas season approaching things will likely stay quiet until the new year. We’ll do our best to stay on top of anything that breaks between now and then.

Until then… Have a wonderful holiday season, starting with a Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

Happy Thanksgiving

NCW to meet in October

October 6, 2010

On Wednesday October 20nd at 6:45pm in the William G. Rohrer Memorial Library,  the NCW will meet again. This time to discuss their process to move forward with their non-profit group, Friends of the Westmont Theatre (FOWT). Anyone with an interest in the Westmont, the NCW or its new non-profit group, is strongly encouraged to come out for the meeting.

Haddon Twp Block Party was a success!

September 26, 2010

The weather was beautiful, the popcorn was fresh and interest in the Westmont was abounding. We showed up at 9:30 to setup our booth. By 11am fresh popcorn was popping away in the machine. And come noon the patrons were lining up for their free popcorn, but this time that freebie came with a message – a info card on how others can learn about the Westmont & the NCW.

By 2pm the NCW handed out over 200 bags of popcorn and received 20 new contact info from patrons who want to join the NCW mailing list. A very touching moment came around 3pm when a young boy, one who’d stopped by twice before for popcorn, wanted to make a donation to the NCW cause. He placed his $1 in the email sign-up sheet bin and walked away smiling, and of course he received another free bag of popcorn 🙂

Below are some pictures from the day…
