Organizations putting up Facebook pages wouldn’t typically be worth noting these days, but launching a social media page is a communications breakthrough for the Wellesley Celebrations Committee, which orchestrates the annual Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend activities that this year mainly take place May 18-19.
After all, the Wonderful Weekend is in many ways a throwback event featuring an old-timey Veterans’ Parade, an 18th Century Military Encampment at Town Hall, assorted resident recognitions and of course, fireworks.
Volunteer organizers for the big weekend have had a website for years, and it remains active (and includes the current schedule of events), but updates have been pretty spotty on this site in the past and often not timely. The Facebook page should make it easier for the Wellesley Celebrations Committee to share updates with residents and to answer questions.
So, go ahead and Like the Wellesley Celebrations Committee Facebook page (and please like The Swellesley Report Facebook page while you’re at it).
