In 2008, as part of WCC’s 40th anniversary celebration, Friday Fare began as a ministry to reach out and help the Westerville community. A small group of volunteers provided weekend meals for six hungry families in two schools. Six years later, the Friday Fare program has mushroomed. They now serve 90 families in 15 schools, 13 of which are in the Westerville City School District and provide roughly 700 meals each week, totaling well over 20,000 meals every school year.

Concert Band Honored With Denick Award

The Westerville Visitors & Convention Bureau has announced the recipient of the first-ever Jane Denick Advancement of the Arts Award.

The award was presented to the Westerville Community Bands during the WVCB’s Annual Meeting February 11, 2015 at The Old Bag of Nail Pub. Jeff Hartnell, Executive Director of the WVCB, said the award was created to honor the memory of Denick, who passed away in January 2014. She was a member of the WVCB Board of Trustees and a champion of the arts in Westerville.

“Each year, we will give a $500 grant to an organization, group or in­dividual in recognition of efforts to promote and build appreciation for the arts in Westerville just as Jane did, “ Hartnell said. The selection committee for the 2015 award will include representatives of the WVCB Board of Trustees and the Arts Council of Westerville.

Westerville Community Bands received the 2014 award for its continued mission to offer free concerts so music can be enjoyed by everyone, regardless of income. Denick herself was a member and tuba section leader for many years. Her husband, Ralph, is a member as well.

Although Westerville has had a continuing community band presence since 1869, the current version of the Westerville Community Concert Band (WCB) was established in January 1989, formed by core members of the North American/Rockwell Concert Band.

The concert band now has over 80 musicians. The band's season offers entertainment for all ages with a special children's concert dedicated to our youngest audience members. All concerts are performed during daylight hours for our senior audience's ease and retirement villages are encouraged to bring their buses to each concert.
