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.

Wellesley Education Foundation spelling bee
April 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
After taking 2021 off due to the pandemic, on Wednesday, April 6, 7pm, at the Wellesley High School cafeteria, the Wellesley Education Foundation will come buzzing back with its annual spelling contest and fundraising event. Don’t miss the fun as dozens of teams participate for year-long bragging rights as the best spellers in town (there’s a huge trophy involved, as well). Each team of three wordsmiths will take to the stage on the big night to spell out WEF’s message of advancing innovation and excellence in the Wellesley Public Schools.
Think it sounds easy? The winning words from recent years were passementerie (an ornamental edging or trimming, such as tassels, made of braid, cord, gimp, beading, or metallic thread), spelled by the Wellesley Scholarship Foundation, 2020; and jarabe (referring to a Mexican dance), spelled by the Upham PTO, 2019.
Stop by and cheer on the teams at the Bee, WEF’s largest fundraiser for the year.
