NEARLY 70 tomato plants were given away free by the Friends of the North Reading Council on Aging to anyone who requested one, complete with instruction sheet. Participating in the recent drive-up event at the Senior Center were Friends’ members (from left): Angela Mauceri, Mary and Hugo Wiberg III, and Joanna Lexth. The Friends raise funds to support programs at the Senior Center and membership is open to all. (Courtesy Photo)
