Downtown has been very vibrant lately. The new sidewalks are going in on Main Street. Bedford Square and the Gunn house are under construction. I have so many questions about downtown, just personal questions about different projects like the Save the Children/Famous Artists building across the river.

The Near & Far Aid spring cocktail party

The Near and Far Aid Spring Gala at Mitchells was as spectacular as ever, 20 years and running. Westporters were out en-force this Friday evening for a great cause.
