The Wellesley Celebrations Committee announced last week that the Sustainable Wellesley float was awarded “The Best Organizational Float of the 50th Wellesley Veterans’ Parade”.

Pete Jones, Treasurer of the Wellesley Celebrations Committee awarded the plaque to Scott Bender of Sustainable Wellesley.

Thanks to all that contributed to make the float a success and to those who cheered us on during the Parade.

Now we need to up our game even more. Let us know if you have ideas for next year’s float!

Thank you to all that marched in the parade and encouraged us on along the lovely parade route. We heard more shout outs and got more cheers than ever before, and are very thankful.

We are grateful to Laurel for organizing us, the Bender Family for building the float, the Wellesley Wonderful Weekend Parade organizers and Dedham Tesla for letting us borrow the Tesla Model X.

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

This year, we’re celebrating the legacy of environmental champion Rachel Carson, by encouraging our community to stop using pesticides on their lawns. The parade is a great opportunity to meet new folks and enjoy a stroll through town supporting a cause you care about. Plus it is fun – simply show up, smile, and wave!

New Date– Sunday, June 3rd
New location –See you near the intersection of Oakland and Washington St. @ Pole # 5, look for our signs.

Looks like the weather will be lovely for a walk through our town!

Please meet us at 12:30, the parade gets underway at 1:00.

We have a fabulous float this year thanks so very much to Scott Bender for his work and enthusiasm!  The theme is Healthy Lawns = Healthy Kids!
