Newton Serves right here in Waban! April 30th 12:30-3:00 pm.
A message from the head of the Waban project.
Volunteers are needed to help mulch the beds in and around Waban Square: by the T, on Wyman St, in front of Starbucks, and possibly the WLC if there is time. This is a great project for everyone: families, elders, or people with disabilities, since there are jobs for everyone, from filling plastic buckets to wheeling wheelbarrows to the beds, and spreading the mulch. The city provides the mulch (and some snacks) and we provide the manpower. If you can help, please sign up at the NewtonServes Website (on the City of Newton page). If you have any questions, please let me know.

Thursday night, December 15th, the Waban Library Center was proud to host an author talk by Providence author, Ann Hood.
Ann held 31 listeners captive by her fascinating account of how she was born to be a writer from her earliest years as an avid reader.
Her most current book, “The Book That Matters Most,” depicts a woman whose 25 year marriage has just fallen apart. Her husband has left her, and in her emotional dissaray she finds emotional and intellectual support in a book group.
