5th Annual Taste of Westminster

Kiwanis Club of Greater Westminster

The 5th Annual Taste of Westminster is being hosted by the Kiwanis Club of Greater Westminster. The event will take place at the Westminster Sunken Gardens next to City Hall on August 23; from 12pm to 4pm. Ticket prices will be $25 per adult and $10 for kids 12 and under.
 
Your ticket is your key to lots of tasty samples from many of our top restaurants in the local area. Visit any or all of them as many times as you wish. For an additional charge, you can visit our beer and wine tent, hosted by well known breweries and some local wineries. Or you can buy soft drinks from the Kiwanis Club.
 
It's All About The Kids
 
 
Last two years the Kiwanis Club was introduced to the Challenger Little League. A branch of Little League of America, the Challenger League allows children with developmental disabilities the opportunity to enjoy playing the greatest of American pastimes, the game of baseball.
 
Playing in the Challenger League allows these children to have fun, get exercise, learn teamwork, and boost their confidence and self-esteem. While the games aren’t normally competitive, the “thrill of victory” that the kids get from the simple joy of playing the games is a lot more than what comes from winning or losing.
 
Smaller in numbers and stature than other youth leagues, however, the Challenger League has been challenged to locate facilities that are available for practice and games. Regular baseball fields also lack the ammenities that allow wheel chairs and walkers to be properly accommodated.
 
Because of this, Kiwanis has taken up the challenge of the Challenger League. A ball field of their own, a “Field of Dreams” if you will, would help immeasurably to allow these children to reach for the stars and slug one out of the park.
 
Through the Taste of Westminster, the Kiwanis Club of Greater Westminster is pledged to make this dream a reality and build a field for the Challenger League in Westminster.
