About Wayland
map
Located to the west of Boston, Wayland was originally settled as part of the Sudbury Plantation in 1673. Although incorporated during the year 1780 it was not founded as a town until 1835.

The town was named after a woman by the name of Francis Wayland who started the first free public library in Massachusetts in the year 1848, and was also a preacher and president of Brown University.

The town attractions include the Ground Herd House as well as the Depot which is a small shop in an old train station. Wayland also includes one of the best school systems in the state of Massachusetts.

The Boys in the Boat -- The Rest of the Story
If you are one of millions who devoured Daniel J. Browns bestseller, The Boys in the Boat, and didnt want it to end, you are invited to a presentation, The Boys in the Boat: The Rest of the Story, an insiders epilogue to the book. Jim Pocock, great nephew of the books central figure, legendary racing shell builder George Yeoman Pocock, will speak on Tuesday, June 7, 7:30-9:00 p.m. at Trinitarian Congregational Church, 35 Cochituate Road, Wayland. Admission is free. George Pocock has been called arguably the single most influential man in crew racing for over half a century, revered mentor to thousands of oarsmen and dozens of coaches throughout the U.S. Jim Pocock will share his personal memories of his great uncle of the development of the sport of rowing in America, and will tell many rich stories not found in the book. Attendees will be especially well-rewarded by reading The Boys in the Boat beforethe presentation. The Boys in the Boat is the true story of nine small-town University of Washington student-athletes and their coach who surmounted prohibitive odds to win the right to represent the United States in the 1936 Berlin Olympic Games. The upstart Huskies went on to surprise a deep field of crews that included the vaunted host country, powering their George Pocock-crafted vessel, Husky Clipper, to capture the gold medal in the marquee eight-oared shells race and upend Adolph Hitlers plan to use rowing to showcase the athletic and cultural supremacy of National Socialist Germany. Jim Pocock grew up in a family of racing shell builders that goes back four generations. His grandfather, Dick Pocock, built shells exclusively for Yale University for 40 years, while great uncle George supplied every other college in America from his workshop in Seattle. Between them, the brothers built 21 Olympic gold medal-winning racing shells. Jim Pocock served as senior pastor of Trinitarian Congregational Church in Wayland for 12 years before departing in 2011 to serve as counselor to the president of Gordon College, a Christian liberal arts school in Wenham, MA. He and his wife, Beth, reside in Salem. Their son, Nate, is a 2005 graduate of Wayland High School. Jim is a 1975 graduate of Bucknell University, where he was captain and coach of the rugby team. Presentation host Trinitarian Congregational Church was founded in 1828 as Evangelical Trinitarian Church of East Sudbury, adopting the present name Trinitarian Congregational Church in 1896. The church continues to be a voice for evangelical Christianity, with active ministries to the Wayland community and surrounding towns; Web site www.tccwayland.org. Presentation sponsor Wayland-Weston Rowing Association, Inc. is a not-for-profit 501( c)(3) educational organization founded in 2000. WWRA operates the varsity crew team for girls and boys enrolled at Wayland and Weston high schools, and provides other programs for youth and adults who row for recreation, fitness and competition.

Documentary Film Event - Manufactured Landscapes

Manufactured Landscapes is a feature length documentary on the world and work of renowned artist Edward Burtynsky who makes large-scale photographs of 'manufactured landscapes' quarries, recycling yards, factories, mines, dams. He photographs civilization's materials and debris, but in a way people describe as "stunning" or "beautiful," and so raises all kinds of questions about ethics and aesthetics without trying to easily answer them. The Armchair Travel Book Club presents this film after reading Visit Sunny Chernobyl by Andrew Blackwell in March. The author referenced the artist and this film. All are welcome.
