Thank you to all that braved the weather and came out to march with us in the parade last week. Additional thanks to those that cheered us on along the parade route.

The renewable energy theme drew in more marchers and louder cheers than before, meaning this is a “hot” topic. The float and enthusiasm even won us the Chairman’s Award at this year’s Annual Wellesley Veteran’s Parade. Congrats to all.

We are grateful to Laurel for organizing us, the Bender Family for building the float, the Wellesley High School Sailing Team for combining forces and the Wellesley Wonderful Weekend Parade organizers.

There is a great deal of environmental enthusiasm in town. Simply, email info@SustainableWellesley.com to learn how you can get involved.

Bring your family, neighbors and friends to march about environmental concerns in the Wellesley Parade this Sunday. Folks are lining up at 12.45pm on the corner of Elm and Washington Streets. Bring a wagon for the little ones. We have butterfly signs and pinwheels for them to hold.

Look for the sailboat and an electric vehicle promoting healthy, clean wind energy as well as the butterflies and flowers promoting healthy lawns and pollinators.  Sustainable Wellesley, Wellesley Green Schools, Friends of Morses Pond, Wellesley Conservation CouncilWellesley Natural Resources Commission, Friends of Brookside and others will march together. It’s so much fun, please join us!

You will enjoy the shout outs and cheers from friendly spectators along the route.

We are grateful to Laurel for organizing us, the Bender Family for building the float, the Wellesley Municipal Light Plant for their support, and the Wellesley Wonderful Weekend Parade organizers.
