Come see the daffodils! After the planning by Sue Huston, donations from local garden clubs and planting by Sue and a team of community gardeners, the beautiful yellow beacons of spring are here and guaranteed to put a smile on your face! This glorious and dry weather invites us all to take a walk, picnic, read a book and enjoy the beauty of Weymouth’s gardens.
If you know of anyone planning their wedding or special event in the next year and a half, call now! We are delighted to be showing the house and grounds to prospective wedding parties and others planning special celebrations. With so many events postponed, the vaccine roll-out and diminishing COVID-19 numbers promising a brighter future, bookings are picking up rapidly. Weymouth adheres to the state mandate and safety precautions.
I hope to see many of you this Sunday at the St. Patty’s Day Warm-Up! What a great kick-off to Spring. A special thank you to the Women of Weymouth and Barbara Keating for this fundraiser. Bring a chair and picnic or take your Irish fare home for a no-fuss meal. We thank Broad Street Bakery & Café for partnering with us for this event.
Please know the Friends of Weymouth, Inc. Board of Directors is working hard to assess our current business office needs and to work through this transition time. It may take a little longer for Marianna Grasso to return your call, because she has a lot on her plate, so an email is always a good idea as well: Marianna@weymouthcenter.org. Please note that we are transitioning to new email addresses for all Weymouth Center emails. A name with the @weymouthcenter.org address behind it is from someone working on Weymouth business, so be certain not to throw us in spam!
Thank you for your continued support !
