Frankenstein screenings at Wellesley Free Library

October 31, 7pm
This showing is regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley’s classic tale of tragedy and horror in which ‘Frankenstein’ made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a star and created a new icon of terror. The 1931 film’s greatness stems less from its script than from the stark but moody atmosphere created by director James Whale. Frankenstein was greeted with screams, moans, and fainting spells upon its initial release, obliging Universal to add a disclaimer in which Edward Van Sloan advises the faint of heart to leave the theater immediately. If they don’t: ‘Well…we’ve warned you.’ Join us for a viewing of this classic horror tale on Halloween night! 71 min.

You’re not really going to let your kids eat all that candy, are you?

Wellesley Dental Group, Candy DriveWellesley Dental Group will hold its 11th annual Community Candy Drive to benefit the U.S. Troops serving overseas. From November 1 – November 8, they will be collecting candy, handwritten notes and cards for our soldiers. Then on November 9 at 10am, the yearly dramatic display of all the loot will take place outside of the 5 Seaward Rd. office. Schools and organizations are invited to attend.

The goal is to teach the kids lessons in giving by encouraging them to share the extra Halloween candy with our troops oversees.  The packages will be sent via CarePacks, a non-profit organization, along with oral hygiene supplies.

To schedule a candy drop-off, please call (781-237-9071) or email us (smile@wellesleydentalgroup.com).
