Thanking the ACL Garden Club

Our garden looks lovely!  Thank you to all the wonderful volunteers who have been stewards of the grounds this summer.  We’re looking forward to more projects–and possibly some gardening educational events–this fall.  Please contact Liz Noon at liz-noon@comcast.net if you’d like to learn more.

Our most recent ACL Garden Club volunteers: Freda Piecuch, Penny Caponigro, Jim Noon, Melissa Gallagher, Linda Winslow, Margo Young, Alla Webster, Reshma Kulkarni, Riddhe Kulkarni (age 5), Ryan Chao (age 8), Arnall Chao (age 3 1/2), ZiZi Zhang, Liz Noon

Looking for a neighborly community-based volunteer activity this fall?  We’d love to bolster our Auburndale Community Library volunteer ranks.  Here’s how it works:you sign up for a shift when it’s convenient for you (maybe once or twice a month) and you help keep our little library going strong!  Contact danakhanson@gmail.com for the link for volunteer signups and we’ll train you on the job–it’s an easy peasy gig.

Special Fall Kickoff “Wheels on the Bus” Story Time Tuesday, Sept 2 at 10:15 am

It’s story time again at the ACL, starting Tuesday Sept 2nd at 10:30.  Everyone is welcome!  While the big kids are at school, we’ll be reading (and singing) Pete the Cat — The Wheels on the Bus, making our own school buses, singing the ABC song and more, and reading lots of other fun books.  (A reporter from the Newton Tab is planning to join us for the fun, so feel free to wear your best back to school outfits–adults and kids alike!)

Come join us, bring your friends, and make some new ones at the ACL story time!
