[ARCHIVED] Westfield's 350th Celebration

The City of Westfield has begun preparations for the celebration of its 350th anniversary of incorporation.  The official date of incorporation is May 19, 1669, with a 2019 celebration.   A steering committee has been formed to explore the many ways in which to recognize this milestone.

Guiding this group through the process is Community Outreach Coordinator, Amber Danahey and Community Development Director, Peter Miller.  They have begun the planning stages with the committee.  There are 18 committee members currently, and the group will be looking to expand as sub-committees are formed and ideas are put into action.

First order of business is to seek community input through a survey.  The 350th Celebration Survey was created and will be distributed throughout the community starting this week.  It will be available in hard copy as well as on-line.  Copies are currently available at the Athenaeum (  Residents are encouraged to take this survey so that many ideas and opinions may be coalesced to bring a little something for everyone in this celebration.  Surveys are requested by January 31, 2017.

Mayor Brian P. Sullivan:  “It would be nice to celebrate the 350th throughout the year in order to give the people a chance to participate in the festivities.  It will also give the committee a chance to highlight the many different parts of the city with long histories.”
