193The Westbury Civic Club’s monthly newsletter, Westbury Crier, won a Silver Award for their printed publication at the 38th Annual Neighborhoods USA (NUSA) conference held in Minneapolis, Minnesota this past May 2013. The winners of the newsletter competition were presented in two divisions of newsletters – electronic and printed versions. In both of those categories, GOLD and SILVER levels were recognized.

“This is great news to hear that our Westbury Civic Club has won a national award for our monthly newsletter. It takes a lot of effort every month to pull it together, but it is nice when we hear positive feedback from our residents that they find the info helpful. Although it is written specifically for our own residents, people who live in nearby neighborhoods and in our Westbury Super Neighborhood also like reading the features in our newsletter and can obtain it at local businesses, the Platou Community Center, area schools, the Westbury Community Garden, or read it on-line. I want to thank Council Member Larry Green for encouraging us to submit our newsletter for consideration by NUSA,” states Cindy Chapman, member of the Westbury Civic Club newsletter publication committee.
