The Great Wellesley Train Show Saturday November 7, 2015 
-Wellesley Community Center Kicks off Holiday Season-

Like trains? This coming holiday season, The Wellesley Community Center, a private 501c3, is adding to its lineup of program development by bringing the very first big train show to Wellesley. 
The Hub Division, a regional member of the National Model Railroad Association, will be contributing many of the layouts for the show.  We will also feature The Massachusetts Bay Railroad Enthusiasts is an organization for people who like trains and is chartered as an educational nonprofit corporation.  They are famous for their excursion programs, which began in 1934.  Look for more from Mass Bay in the future.  And lots of vendors with nifty trains and related accessories.

The show will feature a variety of scales.  Many people are familiar with HO gauge, the most popular scale within the hobby, but there is also N gauge, the really small set ups that pack incredible detail into a relatively small space, the traditional O gauge, or Lionel gauge, as most casual observers call them and G gauge.  G Gauge is the largest set up with the widest track size.  It is most commonly seen in Britain as part of our door garden and landscaped them.

During the course of the show, Dick Miller, dressed in his authentic Boston & Maine railroad conductor uniform, will be the 'Magic Railroad Conductor' demonstrating some railroad-themed magic, along with partner Dawn Kelley.  The two entertainers often perform aboard passenger trains and at model railroad club shos, meetings and conventions.  They have performed at Edaville Railroad, located in Carver, MA, Bedford Depot Park in Bedford, MA; at the Mystic Valley Railway Society's annual meetings, and at several other train-related venues. 

Parking is free and there are no admissions fees.  The show opens to the public at 10:00AM and concludes at 3:00PM that Saturday, November 7, 2015.  Food concession will be provided by who else, Subway.  Eat Fresh!

This is a fun filled family event that will expose young persons and grown-ups to the history and fascination of model railroading.  In New England, we are fortunate enough to have inherited an enormously rich history with railroading.




Wellesley Theatre Project Events Winter/Spring Season


High School Musical:  Disney Channel's smash hit movie musical comes to life on stage! Join Troy, Gabriella, and the rest of the East High as they deal with first love, making new friends and the challenge of being in high school.  When basketball team captain Troy and brainy Gabriella decide to audition for the school musical, they cause upheaval within their own cliques by going against the grain.  Although many students resent the threat posed to the 'status quo', Troy and Gabriella's alliance might just open the door for others to shine as well.

A Christmas Carol the door for others Join us for this classic story adapted for the stage by Michael Wilson.  A Christmas Carol is the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kinder man after visitations by various ghosts.  This theatrical and spirited adaptation puts the phantasmagoric qualities of Charles Dickens' classic tale center stage.  A chorus of ghosts weave through this uplifting holiday story of redemption magic and hope.

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 2015. Thank you for supporting such a worthwhile cause and please let us know what we can do for you!

A Message from the Executive Director

As 2015 draws to a close we are introducing for the first time, The Sustainer Program.  In this new era of 'the stakeholder' we are well positioned for everybody to show their support for The Wellesley Community Center.  This should be a watershed year for donations here at our campus.  We recently sponsored our second annual World of Wellesley Diversity Summit in September.  We are well on our way with Season Three of Cooks in Town and Gil Stubbs' World of Magic.  We co-sponsored Rotary's Stop-Hunger-Now project for the second time.  We just finished up The Party Experience this month on Sunday, October 18, where guests could sample entertainment, catered delights and unique food offering along with specialty vendors.  The Great Wellesley Train Show will kick off the leading edge of the Holiday Season.  In January, we will be hosting the Wellesley Mother's Forum workshop on Wellness with Stacy Kennedy.  We have a fashion show and a retail expo in the works.  Never mind all the other events coming up for next year. Our partnerships with Scouts and other civic organizations continue to grow and expand.  We look forward to sharing continued updates with you.
