SELECTMEN NOTEBOOK: Save The Dates — Selectmen Approve 2018 Walks, 5Ks & Marathons

WILMINGTON, MA — At its most recent meeting, the Wilmington Board of Selectmen approved several community events scheduled to take place in 2018 and 2019.

The town recently implemented a new application process for community groups seeking to hold events utilizing public roadways. Groups now need to submit an application by October 1 so that town departments impacted by such events can incorporate the associated costs into their operating budgets for the following fiscal year.

Most groups put in requests for 2018 only, while some took the opportunity to request dates for both 2018 and 2019.

The following requests were unanimously approved by Selectmen at their last meeting:

  • Wilmington Little League Parade — April 21, 2018
  • Wilmington Little League Parade — April 20, 2019
  • We’re One Wilmington 5K Run/Walk — April 21, 2019
  • Pan Mass Challenge Kids Ride Ride — May 19, 2018
  • Brady’s Foundation 5K Run/Walk — June 10, 2018
  • Fun on the Fourth’s Road Race & More — July 1, 2018 & July 3, 2018

  • Tony A 5K/Walk — October 6, 2017 or October 7, 2017
