THANK YOU From the ACL Fund

This past May, we embarked on our fifth annual ACL Fund campaign and over 140 donors have made contributions over the past few months–you are wonderful!!!

Did you wish to donate but didn’t get around to it yet? There is still time. Donations may be securely made online here or you may mail donations to:

The ACL Fund
375 Auburn Street
Auburndale, MA 02466

We are truly touched by our ACL community’s generosity. Thank you so very much.

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 danakhanson@gmail.com for the link for volunteer signups and we’ll train you on the job–it’s an easy peasy gig.

Our 2019 Artful Piano is Here Through Mid June!

We are delighted to be hosting this beauty of a piano on loan to us from the John M. Barry Boys & Girls Club of Newton.  Come by and play a tune sometime!  We’ll be hosting the piano for the next 4 weeks.  We have several neighborhood volunteers helping to keep the piano covered in the evenings and when it rains, but please, if you ever see the skies clouding up unexpectedly and the piano is uncovered, please feel free to grab the tarp in the bin and give it a quick cover and wrap with the bungee cords!  Thank you in advance for helping us with the care and feeding of our piano!
