What Would Westerville Do? …

On Tuesday, June 12, 2018 – City Hall becomes center stage for entertainment and politics only at different times. Drop by just before noon for live music on the courtyard. Bring a lunch, a friend, and your enthusiasm. Come back in the early evening for a city council work session. Not sure what is on the table tonight but city council is always interesting and the most direct connection to your government. Speaking of puppets, it’s a mystery that will be solved with enough intrigue to keep everyone at the library happy. Take the kids. Get a cup of coffee. Relax for an hour. If you’re more the outdoor type, the Otterbein Community Garden is the best place to go Monday. Great for the kids. Great for the parents. Get a cup of coffee.
