On the sunny morning of July 18th, 2014, Wellesley Dental Group welcomed the local friends in the celebration the first commercial solar panel installation. The community came out to support the efforts of the local volunteers of the Wellesley Green Collaborative Network. Wellesley Weston Magazine (see article and pictures), Wellesley Townsman and Wellesley Media Corporation covered the community event.
The event started out with a heart-warming performance of the National Anthem by Evan Lariviere, a Wellesley student of the Upham Elementary School. Evan’s calm and confident delivery helped the guests to stop for a moment to reflect and ponder about the main reason for the celebration – the community-wide effort to live in a better society and build a better world the children. The six-year-old shared that he likes doing things for the community and wants to be a dentist or an engineer.
Ellen Korpi and Phyllis Theermann, the volunteers of Wellesley Power to Choose and Sustainable Wellesley, started off with introducing Drs. Ali & Ali of Wellesley Dental Group as the local business owners, who are “leading by example”, becoming the first business in Wellesley to go Solar. As the event went along the solar panels were being installed on the South-Eastern side of the building.
Ellen Gibbs, our Wellesley Selectman, honored Drs. Ali & Ali of Wellesley Dental Group and Wellesley Green Collaborative Network volunteers with commemorative Certificates of Appreciation (See the image gallery below).
Additionally, the State Representative Alice Peisch, congratulated the business on the recent transition to solar energy and thanked Wellesley Dental Group for “being a leader in Wellesley’s sustainability-oriented initiative”.
Drs. Ali & Ali appreciate all the support and strongly believe we should be thanking the community. Together we can do this! Thank you to all of the participants below (to name a few) and many others for your time and effort:
