Cooks for Cultural Connections Flyer

Would you like to share your culture through cooking? 

After a very successful series of events last year the #WoburnUnites Cultural Connections Supper Clubs Project is seeking diverse community members with a love of cooking who would like to share some favorite dishes that represent their heritage.

Teach small groups of the Woburn community about your culture as you prepare a meal together.  

All events will take place in a public kitchen. A stipend will be provided for supplies.

The Human Library

This event aims to create a safe space where one-on-one dialogue can lead to greater understanding, compassion and acceptance. Our goal, here, is to encourage community members (our “books” share their stories with other community members (“readers”, if you like) in short, one-on-one conversations.

Share your unique story of hardship, challenge and triumph in short one-on-one conversations. Real stories, real people, real conversations. 

Join the Woburn Host Lions Club on Sunday, October 27 from 1-3pm for their 65th Annual Halloween Parade!

Every year this parade draws in a crowd of at least 80,000 people to see more than 90 floats from local groups and organizations. The parade hosts over 25 bands such as the University of New Hampshire, Mass Maritime, Waltham American Legion and local community bands! This parade is sure to be a fun time for the entire family!

The parade will kick off at 1pm sharp. The Parade route starts at Crowne Plaza/Showcase Cinema traveling south on Main St to Woburn Center continuing onto Lake Ave at the Winchester line ending at Horn pond. The parade route is 2.2 miles long and normally takes just about 1.5 hours to walk the route end-to-end.

House Tour Visitors

Save the date! The Woburn Holiday House Tours and Holiday Wine Tasting are coming up on December 8. We are putting together a great lineup of homes for the House Tour! One or two more homes are needed to complete the lineup. Contact David Crowley at dcrowley@socialcapitalinc.org if interested.

Scarecrow

Mark your calendars for McCue's annual fundraising event, Scarecrows for Solutions, happening on October 12th & 13th! Every year McCue Garden Center partners with local nonprofits to host a fun filled family & community focused event. Scarecrows for Solutions is a drop in event where you bring a long sleeve shirt and pants, all other materials will be provided. The cost per scarecrow is $15.00 and 100% of the proceeds go straight to the nonprofits we have partnered with. Join us for another memorable event while giving back to your community!

A basketball

The Travel Basketball Program is offered for boys and girls in grades 4 – 8 that are Woburn residents.  Any player that would like to be considered for a travel basketball team must attend one of the two evaluation days.  Players are picked for teams based on ability and skill level. Unfortunately, not everyone will make a team, but every player that would like to tryout is encouraged to do so. Practices are held 1 to 2 times per week in addition to games on Saturdays and Sundays.  If you have any questions regarding this program please contact the Recreation Office.
