Luminary Night, Sunday, Dec. 7
It’s already time to start planning your participation in The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club’s (WHJWC) 8th Annual Luminary Night, which this year takes place on Sunday, Dec. 7. On Luminary Night, families and businesses throughout Wellesley light luminary candles along their streets, sidewalks and doorsteps, creating a beautiful town-wide glow welcoming the holiday season.
Luminary Night proceeds benefit the Wellesley community; funds are used to both support a number of local charitable organizations and create scholarships for WHS students. Last year, Luminary Night raised $27,000, with more than 30,000 candles lighting the town.
Luminary kits, which include 10 luminaries, sell for $20 apiece. Kits can be ordered online at www.whjwc.org; kits purchased online will be delivered to your home.
Kits can be directly purchased the week of December 1st at (1) Roche Brothers, (2) the Linden Store, (3) the RDF (December 6th only), (4) LittleBits Toys, (5) Wellesley Dental or (6) the Holiday Boutique.
Kits will also be sold at the WHJWC Wellesley Marketplace event on November 22nd at the Middle School.
