Let’s Re-energize the Auburndale Community Association! Meeting at the ACL on Thursday, October 24th at 8:00 pm

Come to an information session to learn how we can rebuild the Auburndale Community Association. Many years ago, the Auburndale Community Association (ACA) enriched the community by organizing a variety of activities, such as one of the first Newton Village Days. They currently support Rove the Cove, an annual road race.
Several of us are interested in reviving the ACA. Join us to hear about plans to revive this community focused organization! Come to listen, or bring your ideas and suggestions for community events.  For more information, email Susan at

Speed Cubing at the ACL: Saturday, October 19th* from 11 am to 12:45 pm

* The October 19th date is 99.9% certain, but our teen volunteer who runs it might have a last minute conflict.  Check back closer to gametime…
Have you ever wanted to learn how to solve a Rubik’s cube?  Or maybe you can solve it, but want to meet like-minded folks that are into speed cubing?  Join 9th grader Tim Kwartler and his Mom, Cecelia Kwartler, as they teach and inspire all ages of cubers on Saturday, October 19th from 11 am to 12:45 pm at the ACL.  Kids and adults welcome.

Looking for a neighborly community-based volunteer activity?  We’re always looking 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 for the link for volunteer signups and we’ll train you on the job–it’s an easy peasy gig.
