CENTENNIAL UPDATES


The League began in 1919.  It set up headquarters in the "Yellow Barn" at 494 Boston Post Road, paid $15 a month rent, and opened the "Willow Plate Tea Shop" and "Food and Fancywork Exchange" to raise funds for their projects.  WIthin months, the original 13 women captured the attention of the press and interest of the towns' women.  Within the year, there were an Educational Committee, Civics Committee, Social Committee, Art and Music Committee, Program Committee and Recreation Committees, which soon became the Welfare Committee.

Clothing Exchange

 

WCL Spotlight

 

The Spotlight this month is on the WCL Clothing Exchange. After 76 years of serving the Community of Weston, and 44 years in one location, this will be our last season in the Josiah Smith Barn.  We need your support to make this the best season ever and help us reach our goal of $10,000.  We are asking all our members to donate in-season gently used clothing and household items or make a donation directly to the WCL Service and Scholarship Fund. Our doors open Tuesday, September 11, 2018.  If you are unable to bring your donations (Tuesdays 10a.m.- 4p.m.), please contact Adrian Proll for our concierge service and pick up at your convenience. We hope you’ll enjoy a little history on the Clothing Exchange. 

The Women’s Community League was established in 1919. It was organized to continue the cooperative service when women rolled bandages, knitted sweaters, mittens and scarves for the War effort. The Children’s Exchange began officially in November, 1942 under the “Committee of Public Safety”.  To meet Weston residents needs, they planned a “second-hands goods” sale. Identifying continued need, the Children’s Exchange opened in the Unitarian Church on January 3rd,1943. The following year, it moved to the Town Hall in the Fall of 1943.
