Friends of the Wayland Council on Aging - Social Networking Expansion

Most towns in Massachusetts have a Council on Aging to provide programs and services to their senior citizens. Councils on Aging receive a portion of their funding directly from Town Government, but like School Districts, Veteran Services, and Conservation Commission, they count on grants and donations from outside organizations to pay for services Town Government cannot cover. The Friends of the Wayland Council on Aging is such an organization.

We are volunteers who provide outside funding to the Wayland Council on Aging for equipment, cultural events, and classes serving the unique needs of Wayland’s senior citizens. The Friends website (https://www.friendsofwaylandcoa.org) describes who we are and recent program and equipment underwriting activities.

We would like to expand our social networking presence beyond our web site. None of us are web-savvy by any means: we seek assistance from creative Wayland High School students who are much more familiar with setting up and maintaining a web presence on multiple social media, including but not limited to Instagram, Reddit, and Facebook.

If applying your creativity on behalf of Wayland’s senior citizens sounds good to you, please contact John Shaw at friendsofwaylandcoa@gmail.com
