Holiday Tree Sale at Land's Sake farm in Weston - Volunteer Opportunity -

The Rotary Club of Weston and Wayland (https://westonwaylandrotary.com/page/showhomepage/), in partnership with Lands Sake is holding a Holiday Tree Sale at Land's Sake farm at 90 Wellesley Street in Weston.  This is their main fundraiser for the year and 100% of the proceeds go to need-based scholarships that is given every year to graduating seniors at Weston and Wayland high schools along with our food security projects, conservation projects, Ukraine relief work, Rising Youth Leadership Awards, and Lands Sakes hunger relief work.

The Rotary Club could really use some help over the next two weekends (both Saturday and Sunday) between the hours of 10:30am and 4:30pm.  Moving trees around is hard work and they could use some strong young volunteers.  It would be a great team-building exercise. It's also a great way to earn community service hours!

Help Needed - Rake Leaves for Wayland Resident

A Wayland resident needs some rakers to take the leaves out of their garden.  The resident is disabled and can not do the work themselves.  If possible, please bring a rake or a leaf blower.
The resident would like to do this work in two stages. 
First, to have the main layer of leaves raked up as soon as possible, leaving some down around the plants until the last frost; then those will need be removed.  
 
It would be a nice activity to get out in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air.
 
Is there anyone needing Community Service hours?
 
Please contact Cindy Leonard at 508-653-3743.
If no answer, please leave a message and give your availability.

Assist a Local Temple with Zoom Streams


Congregation B’nai Torah, on Boston Post Road in Sudbury requests a volunteer to assist with Zoom and/or Live Stream of Friday evening services for this reform Jewish temple. 

The volunteer would assist with controlling or monitoring the broadcast of the one-hour service.  Duties would include logging into our Zoom account or initiating the live stream equipment, monitoring the event to be sure that the technology is working properly, and spotlighting speakers or participants as needed. 

The service usually from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm, however, some services occur from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm.  Logistics require the volunteer to be available ½ hour before and ½ hour after the service in addition to the one-hour service. 

Opportunities exist for additional volunteer time on certain Saturdays if desired.  We expect the opportunity to qualify for community service hours and should also be educational for those interested in production and event broadcasting.

For more information, please contact Jeffrey Levine at 617-969-6630, x105 or email: [email protected]

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 Twitter, Instagram, Reddit, and Facebook.

If applying your creativity on behalf of Wayland’s senior citizens sounds good to you, please contact John Shaw at [email protected]
