We apologize for the incorrect date for the Luminary Night as advertised in our weekly ad in the Wellesley Townsman. The event actually took place on Sunday, December 5 and it was a great success. The Townsman editorial page gave it a "thumbs up" saying, "The luminaries are a relatively new tradition, one that began in one neighborhood four years ago and rapidly spread to others."
For those who are unfamiliar with Luminary Night, participants purchase a luminary set from the Junior Women's Club that supports organizations such as the Wellesley Friendly Aid. The luminary set consists of a paper lantern that you would place at the end of your driveway. On the night of the Luminaries, people travel throughout Wellesley neighborhoods, following the lanterns. It's a lovely sight and a great community effort to raise money for the needy. Kudos to all those who participate and support this rapidly growing new tradition!
Speaking of tradition, Rutledge Properties has a long standing tradition of supporting the Toys for Tots campaign by the United States Marine Corp. We are collecting toys right through next week - be sure and bring a brand new, unwrapped toy and we will make sure it gets to Toys for Tots. Thank you for your support!
We hope as you stroll downtown either during the day or night, that you will stop by our windows to see the lovely Gingerbread Village made by children of our brokers last Sunday. These yummy and tempting gingerbread houses create an entire village, surrounded by an antique train that still runs!
In our other window, we have a full Christmas village complete with lighted houses! Each window has a beautifully decorated tree. Here are pictures of our decorations:[gallery columns="2"]
