Wellesley Historical Society’s Spring Celebration to Honor Stan Pratt and the Pratt Family

The Wellesley Historical Society will be holding its Spring Celebration at Wellesley Country Club on May 16 and “everyone in town is invited,” said Society president John G. Celi who added that “We will be honoring someone who has been very important to the Society and a family that has had a meaningful impact on Wellesley life: Stan Pratt and the Pratt Family.” The Pratts have been in Wellesley since 1904 but the family goes back to the earliest years of the colony when Richard Pratt arrived in Boston in 1638. Event chair Ellen Meagher reported that “we will be having historical displays, live and silent auctions, food stations, music, and much more. This is going to be one great party and the early responses have been terrific.” The event will take place in the ballroom at Wellesley Country Club and is the major annual fundraiser for the Society.

Tickets are $125 per person. For information, contact executive director Erica Dumont at (781) 235-6690 or director@wellesleyhistoricalsociety.org.

Society board member Stan Pratt had a career in venture capitalism and was inducted into the Dow Jones Private Equity Hall of Fame.
