On a perfect summer evening, a contingent of Wellesley Neighbors recently enjoyed Thirsty Thursday on the terrace of the Wellesley College Club. “Of course, anyone can enjoy Thirsty Thursdays, but going with friends makes it more fun,” says WN Activities Chair Maureen Donlon. “Like many of our activities, the group aspect gets people out for things they might not do by themselves.”
The College Club welcomes the public to Thirsty Thursdays through September 28, 5-7 p.m. They’re outside, overlooking Lake Waban (or inside, if rainy) and offer soft drinks, cocktails, wine and beer and savory appetizers. The Club is just inside the Rt. 16 entrance to Wellesley College, and free parking is available.
Wellesley Neighbors (WN) is a non-profit membership organization for older couples and singles from Wellesley, Needham, Natick, Weston and Dover, plus other towns on request. Unlike some organizations, it does not break for summer. Its activities run year-round, as does support (like rides and computer help) and a roster of services recommended by members.
The organization was founded almost ten years ago, as part of the “village movement” inspired by Beacon Hill Village in Boston. There are now more than 200 “villages” across the country. Call WN Executive Director Joyce Wadlington for membership information at (781-283-0417, x1).
