Submit your event/s here. 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.
Thanks, Deborah & Bob

DPW Truck Day
May 22 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
The Wellesley Department of Public Works is holding DPW Truck Day on May 22.
Not only can you check out the big rigs, but if you bring along non-perishable food donations you can help the DPW fill up a bucket or truck bed to contribute needed items to the Wellesley Food Pantry.
A variety of trucks will be open for visitors to explore from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at DPW Headquarters (20 Municipal Way).
Also on Saturday, Wellesley Recycling & Disposal Facility (RDF) users can fill a truck with non-perishable food at the book exchange area.
All donated food will go to the Wellesley Food Pantry which serves approximately 400 clients in about 200 households. Suggested donations include:
Chicken Broth, low sodium or no salt Almond Milk, plain, unsweetened
Canned Salmon Laundry Detergent
Canned Beets Dinty Moor Beef Stew

Soy Milk, plain, unsweetened Vegetable oil
When exploring our DPW trucks, please remember to cover your face if you can’t remain distant from others. Surfaces will be cleaned throughout the day.
