130th ANNIVERSARY WEEKEND
MAY 5-7, 2006

The Wollaston Congregational Church celebrated its 130th Anniversary on the weekend of May 5-7, 2006. A number of events were planned to celebrate this milestone and the whole weekend was an overwelming success.

On Friday evening we had a display of pictures and records from our newly organized archives and a selection of fine pastries and coffee and tea in our newly renovated Parlor (formerly the "Ladies Parlor"). Several members were dressed in period costumes for tours of the building.

Saturday morning we had a pancake breakfast and Wally The Green Monster (Red Sox mascot) as special guest along with the Coca Cola Pitching tent. In the evening we had a Mocktail hour and reception before dinner. Along with dessert, we had a special video showing of MEMORIES AND VISIONS: Stories from the People of Wollaston Congregational Church, 1876-2006. This special 20 minute video consisted of rare photos and documents from our archives and interviews with select church members. The evening was capped off with a walk down memory lane with noted radio personality and performer Mel Simons.

If you are interested in purchasing a DVD copy of Memories and Visions, please contact our church office at 617-773-7432; or you can print out the order form.

Sunday morning featured the combining of three church congregations: Qunicy Community United Method Church (QCUMC), Wollaston Congregational Church (WCC), and Wollaston Baptist Church. Both the QCUMCC and WCC grew out of the Wollaston Baptist Church and this was a memorable "re-joining" of the churches and their choirs in one joint worship service. Anniversary cake and fellowship followed worship.

Pictures of all the events are available on Kodak Gallery. Links are on the right navigation menu. You do not need to be a member of Kodak Gallery to view the pictures.
