Information for Sustaining Members


Sustainer Tea After 5 years of service, Active Members, in good standing, have the opportunity to become Sustaining Members.  Sustaining Members have access to our website Member Pages, which contain links to our bi-annual newsletter, The Barn Beat, a full membership directory, and details about various social events.  Sustaining Members, although no longer required to complete service hours, often help out at the Charles River Center Art program on Friday mornings and afternoons on Barn Meeting days and Newton Wellesley Hospital Thrift Shop on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.  Moreover, Sustaining Members frequently choose to assist our services on a more permanent basis as direct volunteers, and you might see them at locations including Wellesley Friendly Aid Association, Newton Wellesley Hospital Thrift Shop, Wellesley Food Pantry and the Health Department Flu Clinics.  Sustaining Members continue to pay annual dues and are invited the Annual Meeting each year.   

Three Sustaining Directors are voted into service each year and organize a variety of events over the course of the year.
Activities this year include the following:
 

September - Sustainer Cocktail Party

October - Morning Walking Tour of the North End and Evening Potluck Party with Spouses and the Actives

November - Morning Dog Walk and Evening Holiday Shopping Event

December - Daytime Cookie Exchange and Evening Yankee Swap

January - Morning Coffee and Either Evening at the Paint Bar Newton or White Elephant Party

February - Morning Book Group and Evening Thrift Shop Fashion Show with the Actives
