Good stuff .... hapnin round town!

Events and other worthy groups around town – there are a number of good causes and traditions that take place around Wayland.  We want to create a vibrant resource where Dads can find those activities and get involved with their kids.  If you have worthy causes or local groups that deserve attention, please let us know.  Here are a few groups we are involved with today and excited to support.


 

Cochituate Breakfast Club – This is a great Wayland tradition open to all Wayland's elementary schoolchildren and their fathers. It is a great opportunity to spend some quality time with your sons or daughters and meet other dads in town.

 Father & Sons first Wednesday of the month

 Father & Daughters third Wednesday of the month

Volunteerism and Good Causes – one of the core components of Wayland Dads is giving back to our community. We want to create opportunities and ways to teach our children the value of giving and supporting those less fortunate. We want to get our kids in the volunteer spirit to show them that many hands make lite work and that they can make a difference in making our community stronger.  

As part of that we want to support and promote many ‘good causes’, to-date that has been everything from supporting a local Wayland Dad in his fund raising efforts for Juvenile Diabetes to promoting a local team in the 2014 Boston MS Muck Fest. If it’s a good cause and we have folks from Wayland involved, we want to help support it.

In the Fall of 2015 Wayland Dads will help run a clothing and donation drive to benefit Cradles to
Crayons. During the month of September Wayland Dads and our kids will be collecting clothing, shoe and book donations for kids.  Once we’ve collected all the donations, we are having a sorting event at Cradles to Crayons in where we will process and donate all the ‘stuff’ to Cradles to Crayons.  

The idea is to piggy back onto 3-4 major town wide weekend events this September.  At those events we will have Dads & Kids in bright t-shirts volunteering at the donation station collecting stuff.

It is what I would call a solid 4.5 star experience. In other words, I give it a 9 out of 10.
