Halloween Events You Won't Want to Miss


As we celebrate one of the most anticipated fall events, Halloween, there is plenty to do in the local area with family and friends. Not only is this day full of spooks and ghost stories, but also it's a day where the young and the young-at-heart can walk through the town as superheroes, Disney princesses, gremlims, and even tooth fairies! As you prepare for a day of traditional Halloween festivities, check out a few events that you may not want to miss:

Wellesley Dental Group Community Candy Drive:


First and foremost, the start of our Annual Community Candy Drive is just a day away. November 1st-5th, please feel free to drop off candy at our office, as well as handwritten notes and cards for the American troops in honor of Veteran’s Day.

This event is a great incentive for children to eat less candy, and provide a nature of sharing, patriotism, and community pride. All organizations, schools, and individuals are invited to participate. If you're one who likes a little friendly competition, you'll love to hear that this year we will be awarding a grand prize of $1000 to the school PTO that donates the most candy! We also hope that you will be present at our Candy Drive Press Event, to be held November 5th at 10 A.M. at our office (5 Seaward, Wellesley). For more info, follow our Candy Drive Facebook page and watch out for new blogs!
