Cass, and J. Fleming’s Absolutely Delicious, 18 N. Cass. There will be a variety of kids activities including art project by No Corner Suns and the Westmont Public Library as well as kids face painting.

“We want to thank all of the volunteers who come out and make this happen each and every week,” says WSEC President John Chorney. “We always need more people, so if you’re interested in helping out, please contact our office at 630-829-9378.
