The Waban Improvement Society strives each year to maintain a warm and family-friendly atmosphere in our village. In addition, we work to keep our green spaces clean and attractive and to help beautify Waban. This year, we are inviting Waban neighbors and businesses to help us in a new endeavor “Waban Lights”. We have contracted with a professional outdoor lighting company to properly light our fabulous evergreen tree in the middle of Waban Square.
