The Wellesley Gardeners’ Guild, founded in 1968, beautifies our community by planting and maintaining the window boxes and floral containers at the Wellesley Square and Wellesley Hills Post Offices as well as the Wellesley Free Library. Plantings are updated each Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday season. All proceeds from this raffle will benefit the club’s civic projects.
