WVN Alert: Cleanups and WayCAM VOD
- WAYCAM PLANS VIDEO ON DEMAND
WayCAM, Wayland's cable channel, plans to offer on-demand video of its local programming, including government meetings, sports and plays.
But WayCAM president Ken Isaacson says the service will have to be delayed 12 to 18 months unless contributors can bridge a $3,000 gap in the current budget
"A small, one-time donation of $10 or $20 or $25, whatever residents and businesses can afford, from 150 to 200 donors, would enable us to begin providing WayCAM VOD as soon as this June 1," Isaacson says. "Is it worth $10 to $25, to be able to download WayCAM programs OnDemand, NOW, instead of waiting until late in 2010?"

The Wayland Historical Commission is sponsoring its eighth annual volunteer spring brush clearing weekend at Wayland Depot on Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday May 3 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Volunteers are welcome to come either day to help remove brush, vines and undergrowth along the inactive railroad tracks near Wayland Depot. Volunteers will remove debris from the old railway turntable pit to expose more of the circular granite walls, in addition to removing brush that has grown up along the tracks and the engine house site. that we cleared off last year.
Volunteers will also clear a pathway along the tracks all the way through Wayland, from the Sudbury Town Line to the Weston town line.
