The Wellesley Celebrations Committee is seeking assistance from the public. The theme for the 2018 Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend celebration is the 100th anniversary of World War I, and descendants of our WWI Wellesley veterans are invited to participate in the parade. The Celebrations Committee is looking for living descendants of the veterans listed on the Town of Wellesley World War I Memorial located in the Great Hall at Town Hall (see full list of names HERE). If you are a descendant or know a descendant, please contact Joann Jones of the Celebrations Committee at [email protected] or by calling 781-235-5076.

WHERE: Hardy Elementary School, Weston Rd
