Waban Improvement Society

Building a better future for our neighborhood



‘Tis the season for celebrating with neighbors! Sunday, December 3rd, 4:45pm

The holiday season is nearly here and what better way to kick it off than with the Waban Improvement Society’s reimagined WABAN LIGHTS & FAMILY SING-ALONG.

This year we look forward to lighting up our beloved Waban Library Center building and surrounding grounds and turning the entire area into a wonderland of light to enjoy throughout the winter.

Before we flip the switch to light up the WLC, please join us for hot chocolate, sweet treats and a festive community sing-along featuring songs celebrating the winter holidays.

This year’s sing-a-long will be led by Rose Hegele, a professional vocalist on loan from the Suzuki Music School.






To save all the paper and trees, we are putting lyrics to the proposed songs below.

Song Lyrics:

Jingle Bells
