Annual Children’s Holiday Shoppe, Dec. 4, 3:30 – 5:30pm

Mark your calendar for Wayland’s 32nd annual Children’s Holiday Shoppe on Wed., Dec. 4 from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the Town Building Gym (enter through the Large Hearing Room). This favorite event allows children in Grades K – 5 to shop for low-cost gifts while their adult waits in the next room. (Some activities will be available for pre-K children while they wait.) Adults purchase $1 tickets for their children to spend in the Shoppe. Middle- and high-school “elves” — from the Girl Scouts, Girls Ice Hockey Team, and National Honor Society — are paired one-on-one to help the youngest shoppers and deliver them safely back to their adults. Volunteers — including members of Wayland Police and Fire — wrap all gifts, so children leave with a collection of wrapped surprises to give their loved ones. Brought to you for 32 years by the Wayland Council on Aging, whose volunteers work year-round to shop for, make, display, sell and wrap gift items. Don’t miss this beloved holiday tradition!
