Happy 2018 from the Vermont Club - News and Winter Events

Vermont Wellesley Club

Dear [first_name],

Happy New Year, friends!

We shall ring in 2018 with two fun regular events: a tea in Essex on 1/28 and our Annual XC Ski and Snowshoe on 2/10. 

  • Annual XC Ski and Snowshoe outing - 2/20/18 starting at 10:30 (Location TBD)
    • To RSVP contact our hostess, Elizabeth Basset, at elizabethbassettvt@gmail.com 
    • Location is always dependent upon conditions so sending your RSVP will ensure you get updates about the event. 
    • The best part of this event is always our lunch afterwards! Pack your own and enjoy the camraderie of our Wellesley siblings.

If you have energy and excitement to join in an event, but the ones we typical throw aren't your "cup of tea" - we encourage all alums to join in and take matters in their own hands.  To have an event in your area all you need is 1) a champion, 2) a location, 3) a method to RSVP and 4) communicate with the club so we can help to promote through the website and email list.  Facebook is open to all Vermont-connected alums and anyone who is connected can post events there.

Also - various clubs at the college have been in touch with the Vermont Club and we wanted to share information with you:

We're excited to share the news: there is a new Shared Interest Group: Wellesley Alum Pride Alliance (WAPA)!

WAPA’s mission is to build a community with LGBTQ+ alums by providing opportunities to share experiences, support each other, and connect with current students. WAPA was founded in 2017 after years of work by several dedicated alums.

If you are interested in becoming a member, learning more about events, or simply want to learn more about WAPA in general, please sign up for our mailing list on our website:

Sign in by clicking Login > Alum Login, use your Wellesley Login, then click on My Account to specify your email preferences for receiving communications from WAPA. If you need help with your Wellesley Login, forget your password, or need to activate your account, click here for more information. Additionally, you can email askwapa@wellesley.edu for more info on signing up or with any questions.

Signing up for our email will get you occasional updates on the club, events, membership efforts, and most importantly, you will get more information on our first ever upcoming board elections! (Don’t worry we aren’t going to spam your inboxes!) 

We look forward to building a supportive community for Wellesley's LGBTQ+ alums!
