a few years ago, we featured a series on Wellesley's neighborhoods that detailed the his- tory of each distinct neighborhood and talked about some of the traditions that have continued throughout the years. Town historian Beth Hinchliffe wrote eight articles, with the first one published in the summer 2006 issue and the last appearing in the spring 2008 issue. I was reminded of this series after reading our Food and Wine article "Around the Block" that describes some of the neighborhood parties that will be taking place now that the warmer weather is here. A number of these block parties have been occurring for many years and, as new families move into the neighborhoods, the recipes, activities, and leadership roles are handed down, new ideas are entertained, and the fun continues. I hope you'll enjoy reading about these intergenerational gatherings and be inspired to start some traditions in your own neighborhood. If you'd like to revisit this series of articles or read them for the first time to learn more about your neigh- borhood's history and character, visit our website at www.wellesleywestonmagazine.com, click on "Past Issues" and locate the articles mentioned above. I know you'll find them to be interesting and enlightening. Also in this issue you'll hear from some of our neighbors who spend their summer days sailing on the ocean blue. But you don't have to be a sailor to enjoy the water this summer. Our Excursions article lists a dozen delightful ways to explore and have fun on the water in and around Boston from leisurely island hopping to a wild ride aboard Codzilla. If you'd prefer to keep your feet on solid ground, try walking and exploring some of our gorgeous nature trails. While you're at it, you might want to think about getting a team together or joining one for Newton- Wellesley Hospital's Hope Walks to be held on September 28. I walked on a team a couple of years ago, and it really is lots of fun and gratifying to be raising money for such a worthwhile cause. If tennis and/or golf is more your style, you might want to look into Newton-Wellesley Hospital's annual golf and tennis tourna- ment to be held on September 8. Another event you won't want to miss is the opening of "Read My Pins: The Albright Collection" on June 9 at Wellesley College's Davis Museum followed by a talk and book signing by Secretary Madeleine Albright on June 16. Get all of the details on these events and more on our online calendar at wwmblog.com. I hope you'll get out and experience many of the good times that come with summer.
