Founded in 1903, the Belmont Dramatic Club is the second oldest continuously operating and performing community theatre group in the United States.
On Saturday, November 23, 2013 our beloved longtime Corresponding Secretary Willa Wye Rockett passed away.
Back in July we celebrated her 100th birthday with a wonderful party at the Belmont Manor Nursing Home. Many of us wore purple to honor our “Lilac Lady.”
We will all miss her terribly, and we celebrate her life, her accomplishments, and her spirit!
A wake will be held for Willa Wye Rockett at the Brown and Hickey Funeral Home, 36 Trapelo Rd, Belmont, Mass. on Friday December 6, from 3pm to 6pm.
Her funeral service will be at Payson Park Church, 365 Belmont Street, Belmont, Mass. on Saturday December 7, starting at 11am.
