Help Wayland Residents On Your Schedule

If you’re looking for a vital volunteer role serving your fellow Waylanders that you can do on an “as available” basis, FISH may be just the group for you. Friends in Service Helping – FISH – is a Council on Aging volunteer group that arranges for and provides rides for Wayland residents to medical appointments when they have no other way to get there. FISH volunteers can be drivers or telephone volunteers, working from home to match clients with available drivers. We are looking for more of both! The client is responsible for any tolls or parking expenses. Please see our flyer for more details about FISH, or contact Ann Gordon, Volunteer Coordinator at the Council on Aging, at 508-358-2990 or

Wayland Buzz spotlight on Wayland’s Water Supply

Development is increasing in town, water restrictions and water conservation have become an annual event, and the aquifer is being called upon to serve more and more users.

Our guests are Board of Public Works Vice-Chair Mike Lowery, DPW Director Tom Holder, and Water Superintendent Don Millette. Beginning Sunday, May 20.

The Buzz airs on Sundays and Tuesdays, at 10am and 6pm on your Public cable channel (Comcast Ch. 8; Verizon Ch. 37).  And online on-demand anytime at
