Wayland Dads to run child care for Town Meeting

Wayland Town Meeting is an important annual civic event where getting the most residents to attend is in all our best interests.  But typically, fewer than 3% of registered voters attend.In today’s national political climate, we should aspire to set an example for how collaborative democracy works.  The system in place at Town Meeting is the purest form of democracy and we should embrace it.  Wayland Dads wants to do something to help more families with young kids attend Town Meeting.

Wayland Dads is coordinating babysitting for the Sunday (April 2nd) afternoon session and Monday (April 3rd) evening session of Town Meeting.  Babysitting will be located inside the High School and will be administered by multiple BASE teachers and High School students.  There will be games, activities, and movies for the kids.  Costs are ridiculously low per child – $20 for Sunday and $10 for Monday (discounts for multiple kids).  Here’s the link for more information and the way to RSVP one of these limited sports – http://www.waylanddads.org/childcare/.  If you can get babysitting on your own, please still make an effort to attend our Town Meeting and help shape the future of our town.

No Fooling: Talented College Groups to Perform at Spring College A Cappella Concert April 1!

Three talented college a cappella groups are coming to the Wayland High School Theater to perform at the Spring College A Cappella Concert on Saturday, April 1, at 7:30 pm. They will be joined by WHS’ own T-Tones, Muses and Madrigals for a night of great entertainment!

Each year, the College A Cappella concerts are a musical highlight of Wayland life. A cappella music features fresh arrangements of both classic and contemporary songs performed by unaccompanied singers, though vocalists sometimes emulate instruments. Having experienced a huge surge in popularity in recent years, a cappella attracts the most talented singers on college campuses nationwide!

Featured college groups include returning favorites Berklee’s Pitch Slapped and Tufts’ Beelzebubs. Also, Yale’s New Blue will perform for the first time at WHS, featuring Wayland High School alum Anna Lifland!

Berklee’s Pitch Slapped

Pitch Slapped is Berklee’s premier co-ed a cappella group. Founded in 2006, Pitch Slapped has performed in various U.S. cities, including Boston, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, and recently toured as far as China! Their repertoire consists of a variety of styles, ranging from pop and rock to R&B. Pitch Slapped has earned the title of ICCA Quarterfinal Champion every year since 2008. Named one of the top five a cappella groups in the country by USA Today, the group won the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella in 2011 and 2014. Pitch Slapped also appeared on NBC’s The Sing Off in 2010 and was featured on America’s Got Talent in 2015.

Tufts Beelzebubs

From Boston to Buenos Aires to NBC’s The Sing Off, the Tufts Beelzebubs have been bringing their motto of “Fun Through Song” to the world since 1963. Through these 54 years the Bubs have stayed at the forefront of contemporary a cappella, releasing award-winning albums, serving as the voices of ‘The Warblers’ on Glee, and being an inspiration for the movie Pitch Perfect. Despite this, they continue to be a silly, crazy, and fun-loving group of guys and tell us that they can’t wait to put on an awesome show for Wayland High School!

Yale's New Blue A Cappella.jpg

Yale’s New Blue

The New Blue is Yale University’s oldest all-female a cappella group, bringing musical excellence to campus since 1969, the first year Yale admitted undergraduate women. A deep alto bass line, soaring soprano descants, intricate harmonies, and complex arrangements make The New Blue’s sound especially distinctive. Powered by a diverse repertoire, from pop to jazz and folk to classic rock, and characterized by award-winning arrangements and a range of unique voices, The New Blue always has a blast!

What better way to mark the start of spring than to come to this electrifying event? Priced at $18, tickets are available at Donelan’s, Russell’s Garden Center, and online at the WHS CAPA website, www.whsarts.org. You can also find pictures, videos, and additional information on the concert’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/collegeacappella/. Seats are general admission and doors open at about 7:00 p.m. The concert will have one intermission with complimentary refreshments.

Police seek information from public on Windy Hill Burglary

Wayland Town Crier 3/9/17: $100K worth of jewelry, electronics stolen in Wayland burglary. Police say at least one burglar stole more than $100,000 worth of jewelry and electronics from a Windy Hill Lane home on Tuesday. There are no suspects, Police Chief Robert Irving said on Thursday.

Police Press Release: On Tuesday, March 7th, at 12:41pm, Wayland Police responded to a residential burglary on Windy Hill Lane.  Upon arrival, officers checked the house and surrounding area but could not locate the intruder.  It is believed the burglar(s) may have been scared off by the return of the home owner.  Several items were removed from the home, including jewelry and electronics.  This case is under investigation by detectives and they ask anyone that may have any information to contact them at 508-358-4721.  In particular, detectives are interested in any sightings, between 8:30 A.M. and 12:30 P.M., of suspicious persons or vehicles in the Windy Hill Lane area or the conservation and aqueduct area in close proximity to the burglarized house.  Evidence indicates that three-wheeled suitcases were taken from the residence and may have been used to hold other more valuable items.

Police ask homeowners to secure their homes when they leave, set their burglar alarms if they have one and to immediately report any suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.  If an unknown person knocks on your door and asks for directions or provides other excuses for them being there, it is possible that they are checking to see if someone is home before breaking in.  This type of activity should immediately be reported to the police so we can attempt to identify the individuals.  Vehicle descriptions and license plate numbers aid the police in investigating and identifying suspicious individuals.  As jewelry is often the target of residential burglars, it is suggested that homeowners hide their jewelry or store it in a safe place. If a resident comes home and discovers that their home has been broken into, they should exit the home and contact the police so a thorough check of the house can be made by officers.
