The headquarters will be open on a regular schedule, Saturdays from 1 to 4 p.m., and Tuesday through Friday, 4 to 6 p.m....

Iris L. Cardin, co-chairwoman of Quaboag Valley Against Casinos, said she also will be at the headquarters with her husband Daniel starting next week on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

On Friday, starting at 3:45 p.m., the group will meet at the headquarters, then proceed to locations in town where members plan to hold anti-casino signs.
