Note that we limit event listings mainly to free or inexpensive public events in Wellesley, such as talks, films, theatre productions, concerts, etc. This is not a place for businesses to promote themselves, their classes, etc. Please don’t submit events that run for weeks and weeks. We approve event listings before they go live, typically within 24 hours.
No business sales, trunk shows, etc. (those would be paid advertisements). Please go easy on the ALL CAPS, exclamation points!!!!, etc.
We also appreciate any contributions to support our independent journalism venture.

Our goal is to inspire the spirit of giving in kids by encouraging them to share their extra Halloween candy with our troops overseas. These sweet treats and handwritten cards are a reminder of home for these soldiers and a reflection of our gratitude. The packages will be sent via CarePacks, a local non-profit organization, along with oral hygiene supplies.
