Wellesley Community Center Collaborates with Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club
The Wellesley Community Center (WCC) is delighted to announce that the Wellesley Hills Women’s Junior Club will be conducting their business this coming school year in Henderson Hall. The WHWJC has brought Wellesley the famous Wellesley Phone Book for over 45 years, not to mention the Kitchen Tour, Marketplace festival, Luminary Night and the new Wonder Run and Kids Fun Run. The Club has generously supported many worthy groups and causes, with $130,000 donated to Scholarship and Grant recipients in 2014-15.

Wheels of Wellesley ‘WOWS’ audiences again during Wellesley Wonderful Weekend
The Wellesley Community Center would like to thank The Celebrations Committee for sponsoring the Back-to-the-Future car and the Florida Highway Patrol Mustang at this year’s third annual Wheels of Wellesley. The campus welcomed over 700 visitors during the course of the event. The Shea family of Hubbardston MA, who own the Delorean Motor Car, received generous donations to the MichaelJFox.org foundation for Parkinsons research throughout the show from visitors amazed with the authenticity of the display.
We would also like to thank the Wellesley High School Key Club, led by Emily Buff, a graduating WHS Senior and Matt Hornung, a rising Senior and next year’s Key Club President. Without the staffing of Key Club members, the Wheels of Wellesley would not be able to offer the level of service and entertainment visitors have come to enjoy in the past.
Furthermore, we want to recognize Katie Chapman, host of the Cooks in Town television show on Wellesley Media, for managing the excellent food concession which was supplied by one of our key corporate sponsors; Whole Foods Market of Wellesley. The equipment and cooking gear were served up, once again, by our own Taylor Rental of Wellesley. We also thank Ken Wax for hosting on short notice Gil Stubbs’ World of Magic performance Saturday afternoon in the Hoffman Room, where Ken dazzled a standing-room-only audience with sophisticated humor and fabulous sleight of hand techniques.
The Modifiers Hot Rod Club of Wellesley also provided equipment, material and labor to make Wheels of Wellesley III a success. Thanks to Bob Gobiel, the president of the Modifiers, we were able to proudly represent the town’s oldest car club with some fabulous examples of automotive engineering, including one of the biggest hits of the show, the DIVCO milk truck. You can count on seeing these members at next year’s WOW IV on May 14, 2016. Corcoran and Havlin Insurance, in conjunction with The Modifiers, played an important role as a sponsor for their second year in a row. Also Dunkin Donuts/Donovan Services were represented by one of their very own employees, Cindy Lane Adams, whose band Double Dee impressed the audience with their country and rhythm and blues classics for a two hour set. Look for more exciting events to come this year and we look forward to WOW IV!
The Wellesley Community Center (WCC) invites you to visit our facility to explore all that we have to offer. As a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, we serve our community in many ways. If you have a idea you would like to share to improve our mission, let us know what is on your mind.
Our primary mission is to provide meeting space for all kinds of groups, including Scouting, academic, athletic and other civic organizations. We are a meeting destination for groups that are valued partners which provide long-term benefits for our community.
Our mission is supported by renting event halls and meeting spaces to private groups for business meetings, educational seminars, wedding receptions, birthday parties and lots more. We also rely on the generous donations from our community, which we support, in order to bolster the quality and scope of our work in 2014. Thank you for supporting such a worthwhile cause and please let us know what we can do for you!
2015 is stacking up to be an exciting year. Olin College sponsored a software programming course for middle-schoolers for the first time, called Junior Code Academy and we had another thoroughly successful Girl Scout Fashion Show in March. We just hosted our third Wheels of Wellesley during the Wonderful Wellesley Weekend. The Wellesley Theatre Project annexed space here at our campus with an exciting line up of performances. We will be hosting the next annual World of Wellesley Conference this September and plans are in the works for the first Great Wellesley Train Show in November, to kick off the holiday season. Our partnerships with Scouts and other civic organizations continue to grow. We look forward to sharing continued updates to share with you.
