Submit your event/s. 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

Flag Day ceremony
June 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Wellesley will hold the annual Flag Day ceremony on Sunday, June 14 at 1 p.m. at Woodlawn Cemetery (148 Brook Street).
The event will take place outdoors and follow current COVID-19 restrictions for social distancing.
Worn and damaged flags from the community and the cemetery will be appropriately retired during a controlled burn by the Wellesley Fire Department. The burning ceremony will also include remarks from local veterans and a salute from the Wellesley Police Department.
Flag Day is American tradition held since 1937 and the most appropriate way to dispose of American flags.
