There may be no such thing as a free lunch... but there is a free bus to get to lunch.

Thanks to all members of Team Western who helped launch the 2018 United Way Elgin Middlesex Community Campaign at the 3M Harvest Lunch on Sept. 20 at Budweiser Gardens. The kickoff for the community provided 3,000 Londoners with the opportunity to show their local love.
