Thank you to Aidan Sullivan for the Office “Extreme Make Over!”
After Aidan presented his Eagle Scout Project idea, the Wellesley Housing Authority waited with bated breath for the work to begin. Fortunately for the WHA, Aidan planned every step of the project, and the WHA did not have to wait long at all! The results are AMAZING and were well worth the short wait. Thank you to everyone who assisted in the painting and landscaping. The Wellesley Housing Authority is proud to have Troop 185 as a community Partner. Please enjoy the video which shows the coordinated efforts of Aidan and his team. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JxczTR-meI
MWRTA Launching Pilot On-Demand Service in Wellesley
The service an on-demand, app-based service for the general public within Wellesley.
