West Lake Terrace enjoys strong community support. Based on our belief that residents continue to be valued citizens, we encourage them to take part in the life of the surrounding community and invite people from this area to become involved in our home. Our outings include picnics and fishing, the local fair, Thousand Islands boat cruises and bus tours. Our dedicated volunteers add much to the good times we have at our summer barbecues, annual bazaars, shopping excursions, holiday dinners and celebrations. Children, local entertainers and clergy visit us regularly.
