Know of Someone Doing Something Awesome in Watertown, Nominate Them

Kate and Allie are the first people featured in Watertown Wednesdays, which focuses on people and groups doing something awesome in Watertown during the Coronavirus outbreak. Looking for a way to celebrate the positive things during the time of COVID-19, a Watertown business has started a weekly feature focusing on a person, group or even a pet doing something great in town. Ballroom in Boston will post the weekly honoree on its Facebook page as part of what co-owner Lilia Weisfeldt has dubbed “Watertown Wednesdays.” “This idea occurred to me that I hear about lots of cool things people are doing around town, especially while we’re all stuck at home,” Weisfeldt said. “I thought we could all use some local positive info in our social media feeds and that this would be a great way to make that happen.”
