2. Bake Sale Success. The seventh graders at Wayland Middle Schools sold baked goods as a fundraiser for their Thanksgiving community service project. When Patch stopped by at about 4 p.m. Tuesday, the students had all but sold out and were excited by the dollars raised.

3. Meetings Return. After a meeting free day on Tuesday, the meeting schedule is full today with the 375th Anniversary Committee, Public Ceremonies Committee and several others meet today. One particular note, the Board of Health meeting scheduled for today has been canceled. For details, check out the calendar on the Town of Wayland website.
