WRENTHAM — Town Administrator Kevin Sweet is pleased to announce that planning for Wrentham’s 350th anniversary celebration is underway and interested residents are encouraged to serve on a planning committee that will be formed this summer.
Wrentham will celebrate the 350th anniversary of the founding of the town in 2023, and the 350th Anniversary Committee will be appointed this July 1 to start planning and organizing the celebration.
“After well over a year of dealing with the pandemic and everything that went along with it, this will definitely be something for the entire town to look forward to,” Town Administrator Sweet said. “The Town of Wrentham has a rich history and many residents who care deeply about their hometown, and we look forward to having a great mix of people sit on this committee to help us plan a year-long celebration to remember. I encourage anyone who is interested to sign up to serve.”
