Tapping Out Volunteer Day. Saturday, February 9. An annual New England tradition: help us install taps and buckets on Weston's maple trees! Location: 27 Crescent St, Weston (Land's Sake's OFFICE location. To get here via GPS, type in "25 Crescent St." That will bring you to Crescent St, and then look for a mailbox labeled "27" and a small "Land's Sake" sign above it. Go down the LONG driveway by that mailbox, which brings you to a small tan house. That's the Land's Sake Office.  To get here via old-fashioned navigation: Crescent St is off of Rt 20/Boston Post Road on the east side of Weston).
