Over 200 guests joined the Sisters of Charity (Halifax) and Board Members of the Elizabeth Seton Residence at the Wellesley Country Club to celebrate their annual Meet the Need dinner. Guests enjoyed a cocktail reception followed by dinner and were entertained by all time favorites, The Winiker Jazz Trio and pianist, Sunny Lee. The guest of honor was Tory DeFazio III, whose involvement with the Sisters of Charity (Halifax) began with his early education at Saint Joseph’s Academy in Wellesley Hills. Tory continues his commitment to the Sisters today. A native of Wellesley, Tory has always been active in Town Government and other local organizations. The Mistress of Ceremonies was Wellesley’s own Kelley Tuthill, VP of Communications and Pubic Relations at Regis College and former WCVB reporter.

Over the Past Three Months…..
September, October and November were busy months. While Nicki was out on maternity leave the fun continued.
September brought fall, the end of our BBQ’s but the start of all the fall fun. Arts and crafts were in full swing, decorating fall trees and making fall themed frames.
When October came Elizabeth Seton kept going with its arts and crafts fun as well as garden club who met and made pumpkin centerpieces. This activity was a lot of fun. October also brought our Halloween parade and party. The children from the Wellesley Mother’s Forum brought their children to visit, dressed in their Halloween costumes. So many unique and cute costumes were seen.
November came upon us quick. We started to get into the holiday season. Arts with Linda was Thanksgiving gourds. Then before we knew it Nicki was back and Thanksgiving was here. Thanksgiving lunch was great. The atmosphere, family and of course the amazing food cooked by our Food Service team made Thanksgiving 2017 very fun and special.
