A Message from the President

Dear WCL Members,

The JST Barn lease was extended by the Selectmen this week. Our primary revenue source for Service and Scholarship, the Clothing Exchange, will remain open until June! 

I’d like to update you on several events that occurred in October. TEDx Speaker Nataly Kogan, author of “Happier Now”  drew a large inspired crowd at the Weston Golf Club. Dinner in Denim was a lovely fall gathering with drinks and appetizers outside at the Community Center and dinner inside. Mary Ann organized seamlessly a Garden Club trip to the Emerald Necklace for a Fog x FLO performance. Fog machines in various locations created mystical, magical experiences. Dining Around wants to return to its October venue; this was partly because they had a private room at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, but also because of great food and desserts (yummy cheesecake!).

Here are some upcoming WCL events. The December Greens workshop is an annual favorite. A festal morning at the Barn with lots of greens available. It’s a cheerful time with friends and everyone brings home a custom centerpiece. The Holiday Party for Weston Seniors is a new tradition that began last year.  It was so well received that we are repeating the event. If anyone would like to help, there will be a sign-up genius. The WCL Luncheon is Thursday, December 13th, 1-3pm.  Judy and Jan asked us to mark our calendars. Invitations will be out soon!

Lights are strung on the Tree at the Town Green. A sneak preview is pictured on the right, but lights are out until the Weston Winter Festival: December 9th 2-5:30 p.m. Your WCL is organizing this community building event. As the tree is lit, the Weston High School Band will perform on the Town Hall steps. The skating rink will be set up (hopefully the weather will cooperate), Scouts will make  S’mores on fire pits, and Weston Dads will grill hamburgs and hotdogs. Games or sledding will engage the families and a “polar express” electric train will circle the green.  We hope that Santa will arrive on a fire truck.  Weston Community Chorus, Weston Friendly, and the  Roxbury-Weston Pre-school will all be caroling. Meanwhile the Town Hall will function as a “warming hut” with WCCA having cookie decorating, face painting, and balloon animals. Upstairs, the WAIC will have an “open mic” event and refreshments will be served.  The auditorium will be magically decorated by Judy and Jan. We hope for a great turnout by the whole community. Your organization, WCL, is organizing the event.   There will be a signup genius sent out; if anyone can volunteer in any areas, please sign up!

Once again, my closing plea is for membership. Our numbers are still low. We are trying to make you proud members of your organization. If you have not yet renewed your membership, please take this generous action of renewing today. Simply go to Click on membership and then click again on member signup. We hope you will renew!  If you forgot your Username and Password, you can easily retrieve it by clicking on the "I forgot my Username/Password".  We are trying to make you proud members of your organization. If there is something that you feel we can improve, email me at


Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
