Lost Cat: Miles missing from home on Bennett Rd (off Route 20 near Wayland Center)

Friendly neutered male shorthaired grey/brown stripped tabby with “clipped” left ear — Miles. Last seen Friday afternoon around home on Bennett Road, near Wayland Center. Very outgoing with big paws.  If you have any information on Miles, please call Molly at 978-505-5912.

The Town of Wayland Wants You to Volunteer!

The town has a variety of volunteer opportunities that call for light, medium, or heavy time commitments and for specific skills or no particular skills at all, only an interest in the board’s work and willingness to learn. We—the Board of Selectmen—are providing you with information that we hope will pique your interest. This column focuses on the new Cable Advisory Committee (CAC).

The CAC has three principal responsibilities: 1) negotiate the terms of the renewal Cable TV licenses with Wayland’s service providers, Comcast and Verizon; 2) recommend that the Board of Selectmen grant these licenses; and 3) monitor the performance of the licensees during the ascertainment process to ensure compliance with the license terms and conditions. We expect that the five member committee will meet monthly or every other month beginning in 2019. Helpful—but not required—skills include negotiating experience, interest in or some knowledge of our local cable operations, ability to understand contracts, and common sense.

If you have questions or are interested in being considered to fill this or any town board position, please contact Teri Hegarty in the Selectmen’s office at thegarty@wayland.ma.us. We look forward to hearing from you!

Holiday Drive for Families Affected by Domestic Violence

Members of the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable display some of the 2017 holiday donations from the Roundtable. Pictured L to R are Malcolm Astley, George Connor, Diane Seligman, Ruth Backman, Joan Gaumnitz, Dossie Kahn and Fay Farber

Each year the Sudbury-Wayland-Lincoln Domestic Violence Roundtable sponsors a family for the holidays, and each year we invite our local communities to become involved in making the holidays brighter for families affected by domestic violence.

There are a number of ways that you can help. Sponsoring a family can be a wonderful way for you and your family to do something together to help others. You can also involve extended family, neighbors, and friends. Or perhaps your colleagues at work, your book club, scout troop, civic organization, or club would like to organize a collection.

For those who cannot sponsor a family, gift cards to retail stores for food, clothing, and other necessities are welcome. Popular stores include Marshall’s, TJ Maxx, CVS, Target, and Stop and Shop. Wrapping paper, ribbon, and tape are also needed. Whatever you can do to help is deeply appreciated.

Three local agencies offer services and programs for families affected by domestic violence. All of these programs conduct a Holiday Drive. Advocates from each agency sit with survivors and provide help with “wish lists” for them and their children.

For further information about how you might help, please contact:

31st Annual Children’s Holiday Shoppe

Monday, Dec. 3, 3:30 – 5:30pm in the Town Building (enter through the Large Hearing Room). Brought to you by the Wayland Council on Aging, this beloved inter-generational tradition invites children in grades K-5 to shop for family and friends with the help of teenage “elves” while their adults wait nearby. Volunteers are standing by to wrap and label gifts, so children leave with hand-selected gifts ready to give at the holidays. All items are priced with a child’s allowance in mind. Wayland seniors help to make and prepare gifts, and manage the sales and wrapping tables along with some other special guests. Teenagers who’d like to volunteer (and earn Community Service hours), please call 508-358-2990 or email agordon@wayland.ma.us. Please join us!
