What a truly Wonderful Weekend it has been! A traditional celebration of the Wellesley spirit took place on May 16 through 18, listing multiple community events and open houses, and culminating in Sunday town-wide festivities: the Veterans’ Parade, the Picnic in the Park and the Fireworks. Wellesley Group is proud to have been a co-sponsor for the fireworks, second year in a row. As Smile Ambassadors for the town, we were thrilled to have a float as well as walk in the Parade, greeting the Wellesley residents and guest spectators and giving out some oral care goodies. After the Parade, everybody headed on to the Hunnewell Field to relax at the Picnic in the Park. Our Smile Station was an instant hit with quite a few families and friends, thrilled about the chance to put on props and be goofy in the photobooth! Photos in one hand, balloons in the other, our visitors were leaving our booth with the biggest smiles on their faces. That was the biggest reward for our team, almost as big as seeing the colorful Fireworks show in the sky later that night!
We would like to once again extend our gratitude to the volunteers at the Wellesley Celebrations Committee for orchestrating the weekend festivities, Wellesley Police Department and Wellesley Fire Department for keeping everyone safe, and Wellesley Municipal Light Plant for providing power for our photobooth! Thank you for the Wonderful memories you have created for the community members!
P.S.: Special thank you to Joanna Bundte, her family, and all the Smile Ambassadors who joined us on the float this year!
