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. Attendees wore masks when not speaking.

As Mr. and Mrs. Westlake, the Ostrowskis got to light up the city holiday decorations both inside and outside City Hall. They also will be featured during events such as the Memorial Day and Fourth of July parades next year.

Delicia Ostrowski has served as a PTA president and several other PTA roles, organizing events such as “Dollars for Scholars.” By day, she works as a nurse.

Mike Ostrowski is a sports professional who gives back to his community by volunteering as a coach and a mentor to kids in basketball and football.
