Monday Handbook: Smashing Pumpkins, Election Day, Tax Due


WAYLAND, MA – Welcome to the November 1 edition of the Monday Manual, where we highlight important events coming up during the week (as well as a local fact) in seven Patch communities between Framingham and Worcester.

This week we start at Wayland, which sent three women to WWI. The Great War was the first American women were allowed to serve. They did not go to the front, but they paved the way for women in the armed forces. Wayland Public Library will be giving a longer talk on their wayland ties sunday.
