They start at 11 a.m. today, and are giving you a free course for Valentine's Day. 4. Wingate at Needham plans to host a Valentine's Day Strawberry Social today. Not only do you get to eat them, you …

For Valentine's Day, tell us what you love most about town.

(Maybe how much snow there is right now?) Since it's Valentine's Day tomorrow, we want to hear what you love most about Wellesley, and what exactly makes this place so special. Is it the open spaces? The people? The small-town vibe? Please post comments and pictures here to show us all your favorite things about Wellesley.

Gentleman, this one’s for you. Ladies, if you’d like to drop hints to the boy, that maybe, just maybe, he might want to have a quick peek at this column, that’s ok.
