Around Town With Jill: Celebrating Veteran’s Day

Veterans DayHi there Westfield, Jill Baker here to let you know about what’s happening in and around town.  I’m looking forward to celebrating Veteran’s Day this Wednesday, November 11th, in honor of the brave war heroes who fought for our freedom.   I hope you’ll remember to take a moment this Wednesday to thank a Veteran and to acknowledge all of the sacrifices they have made for our great country.  If you would like to send me a comment, please send me an email at:
