From the Rotary Club speaker:
Welcome everyone to World of Wellesley’s 29th year of dedication to making Wellesley a welcoming place for everyone. Since 1990, the organization has been a collaborative effort of passionate volunteers and supporters, who are engaged and committed to celebrating and appreciating our glorious human diversity. It is my hope that World of Wellesley will be a part of you and your family’s lives, this year, through our planned programs, conversations and events. Most importantly, the success of the mission can only be reached by listening and learning from all Wellesley residents and support what is possible for making this community a welcoming and inclusive place for all. Thank you to the Rotary Club for your support and inviting me to a meeting.
