If it is August in Littleton, then it is time for Littleton’s Western Welcome Week! This event has quite the history. It all began on July 21, 1928 when Houstoun Waring, editor of the Littleton Independent, held a 40th anniversary celebration for the paper. The event was met with overwhelming support. The
community, under the direction of Waring, decided to hold a celebration in 1929 commemorating the
100th anniversary of the birth of Richard S. Little, the founder of the Littleton community. The event was named “Homecoming” calling everyone who had ever lived or visited Littleton to come home. Today, Western Welcome Week is an ten-day celebration with over 40 events. The not-forprofit
corporation is run by a 13-member volunteer working board, employs an Executive Director and hires temporary help during the summer. The organization also has liaisons from the City of Littleton, Arapahoe Community College, and South Suburban Parks and Recreation.
