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

The Greater Boston Interfaith Organization has embarked on a Housing Justice Campaign which strives to boost financial support for State public housing and increase housing opportunities for all. Sheri Kassirer, a member of the Building a Better Wellesley Steering Committee and Temple Beth Elohim’s co-leader of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization’s Housing Justice Campaign will introduce us to the four parts of the initiative:
- Securing $184M in the State operating budget and $8.2B in capital funds for public housing
- Increasing funding for creation of new affordable housing through the Real Estate Transfer Tax
- Implementing the MBTA Communities legislation in every community
- Ensuring access to housing for returning citizens and people with mental illness
