Recap -Waban Village Day Brick and Used Book Sale 5/17 10:00- 1:00

A beautiful day at Waban Village Day enabled the WLC to have it’s tables working from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm. During that time we were able to sell quite a few of our well loved, but well worn books, patio bricks, and some of the new WLC magnets designed by our
volunteers. It was a very satisfying day.
