Westboro Villager: Fresh starts in fall


For me, September is all about fresh starts and new to-do lists. Even though these are still some of the weirdest times, once September 1st rolls around, I can’t help but begin to plan for my favourite seasons ahead.

While there is zero chance September will be anything but the usual back-to-school routine, I am hopeful we can all find a groove in this new normal. Many of our friends and neighbours will continue to work from home but I’ve recognized familiar faces the past few days – an indication that maybe the offices here in Westboro are having a go at opening. And it has been so nice to see the restaurants spilling out onto the sidewalks and parking spaces the past couple of months.

Who knows what the fall will bring with COVID but I hope the familiar turning of the season brings a smile to your face. The merchants, restaurants and services in Westboro Village are ready for you!

Happy Fall!
