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

Wellesley Spelling Bee
November 12, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
The Wellesley Education Foundation will hold its yearly Spelling Bee as a virtual event on Thur., Nov. 12th. Just as in years past each team will include three spellers, but teammates will be brought together virtually for each of the rounds. All participants should plan to attend from their own home.
Detailed instructions will be provided in advance of the Bee to participants. For viewers, you can watch live on Wellesley Media’s website as well as: on Comcast 9 & Verizon 39.
The Wellesley Spelling Bee is a WEF community fundraising event which raises money to fund enrichment programs for the Wellesley Public Schools. Town celebrities judge and officiate the competition. The Wellesley cable station records the event and broadcasts it several times. A program is printed for the Spelling Bee, and The Swellesley Report is always on hand to cover the event.
Last year a jubilant Upham PTO team practically danced off the stage after winning the Bee just three words into the final round. The winning word: “Jarabe,” referring to a Mexican dance.
