Doesn’t it seem like there is always a plethora of activities to choose from on Friday and Saturday nights ranging from football games to fundraisers. But what I personally think we need more of are the middle of the week slump buster parties like the Party on the Patio thrown by the Downtown Westfield Association. This small outdoor get-together/party will be held Sept. 18th from 5:00-8:00 pm on the patio next to the DWA building at 211 S. Union St. This party is sponsored by VS Engineering and will feature live music by the Jumpstarters. Brian Graham, from Notch 8 Brewery will be there to offer samples of his delicious beers. Additionally you can feel free to bring your own favorite wine or brew to share. This monthly event is a great way to connect with others, network, as well as break up the monotony of the work week. I hope to see everyone out there next Wednesday!
