Coming-Soon-in-Westfield

#WestfieldIN – Westfield, Indiana has been rapidly growing for as long as I’ve been around.

When Grand Junction Brewing Co. opened in Westfield earlier this year, I didn’t give it much thought. I didn’t drink beer even before I was forced into gluten free living. A few weeks ago, I attended a meeting in the back room and learned it is so much more than just a brewery! Grand Junction […]

Jungle John visited the Westfield Public Library this week, with his animal friends. Each summer, animal entertainers visit the library to share their amazing animals with the children of Westfield.
