Brothery Love Fuels Bike Ride

The Dana Farber Cancer Institute has played a significant role in the lives of one Wellesley family. The daughter, Laura, and the father, Scott, have each fought cancers. And the son, Reid, as he has done his whole life, is focused on supporting them while giving back to the organization that has given them so much.

During the first weekend of August, Reid Williamson, a senior at Wellesley High School, will bicycle the 153-mile Wellesley-Bourne-Wellesley route of the Pan-Mass Challenge, raising money in the process for Dana Farber.

Veterans’ Ecumenical Memorial Mass

Continuing what has become a Wellesley tradition, Saint Paul Church held the annual Veterans’ Ecumenical Memorial Mass in honor of the many Wellesley veterans who have illustriously served the country in the armed services. Begun by members of the Wellesley Veterans’ Council and now in its sixteenth year, the ceremony is an occasion for family, friends, and community residents to participate in honoring members of all four branches of the military, both living and deceased, for their service on behalf of freedom for all Americans.

Veterans Parade Honors Education

Celebrations Committee Chair Roy Switzler has said that years ago the Veterans Parade was moved from its traditional November date to a weekend in May because it always used to rain, and for the second year in a row that change paid off with dramatic results.

It was another beautifully sunny and warm Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend from May 18-20, including the Veterans Parade that Sunday.
