Year-End Donations To Support the ACL: Read, Share, Grow…In The Heart of Our Community

Each holiday season, we receive queries from our patrons about charitable giving to the ACL—people love to show their ACL love this time of year!  Of course, the answer is a resounding “yes”—we happily accept donations.  We have our 501(c)3 non-profit designation and donations to the ACLare tax deductible to the extent of the law.

If you would like to remember the ACL in your holiday giving, donations may be securely made online here or you may mail donations to:

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 sgkatcher@gmail.com.
