West End Wednesdays have arrived in the downtown core thanks to the St. Thomas-Elgin Public Art Centre in partnership with The St. Thomas Downtown Development Board.

The community is invited to come together and share meals and conversations every third Wednesday of the month from May until August.

The Program Director at the STEPAC, Sherri Howard, says the program “…is a way to build face-to-face community. It’s positive to get up from your desk and actually talk to people. We thought the live music would be a nice touch too.”

Megan Pickersgill, The Railway City Tourism Coordinator, commends the Art Centre for “…pulling this all together and celebrating our community. It’s great to see the inter-generational groups mixing and mingling in an artistic environment with great local food and wonderful local coffee (Las Chicas del Cafe).”

Las Chicas del Cafe sponsored the event by providing free coffee to everyone that came out.
