I spent a little time at the current exhibit at the Octagon gallery at the Patterson Library in Westfield N.Y. The current show exhibits a nice selection or old photographs showing some of the parades and events held in Westfield from years gone by. I always enjoy see how much things have changed and I also enjoy seeing how little things have changed. I know it kind of a conflict to enjoy both the changes and how little things have changed but that’s part of what I love about living in a small town. You can count of things to be the same but there is still some moving forward as there always will be.
You should schedule a trip to the gallery to view this interesting show of celebration from Westfield N.Y’s. past.
