Westwood Day is around the corner! This year marks the 125th anniversary of the Town of Westwood. Friday brings a high school football game at home followed by fireworks. On Saturday morning through afternoon, enjoy Westwood Day children's activities, performances and demonstrations, and a Vendor Village.  While there, stop by Westwood Minute's tent to say hello, ask how you can help build an informed community as a content contributor or supporter, and/or just pick up a small memento to take home!

Then on Sunday, there's another town celebrating an anniversary. Last weekend, the Town of Norwood celebrated its 150th anniversary at Norwood Day. This Sunday, Norwood continues the celebration by beginning of its Rolling Tour of Norwood Churches.
