Wellesley's Wonderful Weekend leads to another Wellesley week of work.
1. What a weekend! Despite a week of rain and cold, Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend went off without a hitch. Check out our galleries today celebrating the traditional town event. 2. Monday means it’s back to business. There are several meetings on the town of Wellesley website’s calendar tonight. 3. And speaking of the weather, could there be a light at the end of this overcast tunnel? Not so fast: The National Weather Service predicts another cloudy day, with a high of 62 degrees. 4. That means it will probably be good enough for outdoor high school sports to continue. The baseball and softball teams will take on Milton, both at home, this afternoon at 3:45. 5. If you haven’t done so yet, “like” Wellesley Patch’s Facebook …
