WW2 WELLESLEY VETS TRIBUTE
On behalf of the Town of Wellesley Celebrations Committee, I want to thank all of you who contributed photos of your parents who served in WWII. The response was overwhelming. The photos will be on display throughout the month of November in storefronts along Church and Central Streets.
Thank you again for helping Wellesley honor these brave men and women.
JoAnn (Leyland) and Pete Jones
Wellesley Celebrations Committee
and here is a video that Pete made and posted on YouTube that shows in detail what all the displays and photos are dealing with. Lots of great details and stories about the various town residents who served.
This is well worth a look and we appreciate Pete sharing it with us
Every year Wellesley honors the men and women of Wellesley who served in our military with a parade. This year marks the 75th year of the end of WWII and the theme of this year's parade is to honor Wellesley's brave men and women who served in this war.
Unfortunately, the pandemic has caused the parade to be cancelled. But not all is lost!
The Parade Committee has come up with a Plan B. They will display photos of Wellesley's WWII Veterans in the store fronts along Central and Church Streets during the month of November.
JoAnn (Leyland) Jones (class of '70) has been on the Parade Committee for years and is looking for photos of your fathers and mothers in uniform to display who served in WWII. Please email them to JoAnn at: email@example.com
Include their name, branch of service and rank.
The deadline to get your photos to her is this Sunday, October 24, 2020.
If you have questions you can call me at 781-235-2281 or email JoAnn directly.
