First of all, it’s not a costume. It’s regalia, and there’s a big difference. Arawak Nation descendant Claudia A. Fox Tree, entered the World of Wellesley Martin Luther King Day, Jr., Breakfast beating a drum. She wore Arawak regalia and spoke her Nation’s language as the crowd of 75 at MassBay Community College listened.

“A costume is something someone puts on when they are trying to be someone or something else,” the keynote speaker said.

Wellesley Fire Chief Rick DeLorie reports a hazmat situation at MassBay Community College in Wellesley on Tuesday morning has been resolved. Some classes were nixed while the situation was being addressed by safety teams.
On Friday, a lab person placed several chemicals in a container and — eureka! — over the weekend they reacted in such a way that the container became distorted.
Upon receiving the call, Deputy Chief Charles DiGiandomenico took charge and determined the need for a State hazmat team to evaluate. Upon the hazmat techs’ arrival it was determined that due to the significant distortion of the small container that its removal or depressurizing would be best handled by the State Police Bomb Squad. That team assisted with reducing the pressure and removing the container from the building; there was never an explosion concern.
“This was clearly an accidental incident,” DeLorie says. The lab re-opened and classes on that floor were held.
