COMMUNITY

Many of WECPTA's activities are designed for members, but we also host several public events throughout the year.

Become a Member


  Kiddie Kloset resale is a great way to clear out space in your home and make some extra cash! Of course you just might want to buy more than you sell!  

MEMBERSHIP DRIVE

Whether you are a returning member or exploring membership for the first time, we hope you will join us for our annual membership open house. This free, family-centered event is designed to delight younger kids while giving the adults an opportunity to learn about everything WECPTA has to offer. Last year's event was held at the Westlake Recreation Center, and featured hands-on children's activities, a balloon artist, facepainting, and much more! 

Save the Date: September 7, 2019


EVENING WITH SANTA

Every December, WECPTA gathers helpers, tinsel, cookies, and of course, Santa for an evening of family fun. An Evening with Santa typically includes:

  • Santa's Workshop, where little ones can shop for their parents and siblings
  • Holiday crafts
  • Milk & cookie station
  • Santa photo opportunity, and much more!

Last year's event was held at Westlake United Methodist Church on December 7, from 5:30 - 8 pm. Tickets were $5/family for WECPTA members and $10/family for non-members.

In addition, WECPTA also invites facilities to participate in an informational night at the Westlake Porter Library so that prospective families can come and learn about different offerings.
