For years, Westlake’s annual Tree Lighting Ceremony at City Hall has also marked the crowning of Mr. and Mrs. Westlake. Since 1955, the Town Criers have celebrated one couple that have best served the people of Westlake in a positive and outstanding manner. This year, the honor went to Mike and Delicia Ostrowski.
Mayor Dennis M. Clough and Rick Grane of the Town Criers commemorated the Ostrowskis’ selflessness in a small, socially-distanced ceremony at Westlake City Hall the evening of Dec. 6, 2020. Attendees wore masks when not speaking.
As Mr. and Mrs. Westlake, the Ostrowskis got to light up the brilliant array of holiday decorations both inside and outside City Hall for all to enjoy. They also will be featured during city-sponsored events in 2021, such as the Memorial Day and Fourth of July Parades.
Delicia has served as a PTA president and several other PTA roles, organizing events to raise funds and awareness for our children and our community, such as “Dollars for Scholars.” As a nurse, it is remarkable that she finds the time to be as involved as she has been.
Mike is sports professional who gives back to his community by volunteering as coach and a mentor to kids through basketball and football.
The Ostrowskis manage their careers and all of their charitable work while raising three children. More photos from the event can be found on the Annual Special Events page.
