Board is Back

We're pleased to announce that the Bulletin Board is back up and running. Click here to post to the Board, and click here to view all Board entries so far.

The virtual community bulletin board is where you can post all kinds of information about things in Woburn.
Organizations and individuals can post announcements about community programs and activities, employment and volunteer opportunities, and training opportunities of all kinds. This bulletin board can be more than formal announcements—post about a yard sale, a favorite spot of yours in Woburn, or a good meal you had at a local restaurant. Selected postings are then published in SCI Woburn's Week in Woburn. Note events taking place on a specific date are best posted to the Community Calendar.

Elections This Tuesday

The City’s Preliminary Election is this coming Tuesday, September 18. The final Election will be Tuesday, November 6. SCI has launched an Elections Blog with a list of certified candidates; a link to where to vote; and links to relevant news stories on the elections from the local papers. All candidates are encouraged to register for the site, as in the coming weeks site users will be asked to submit their questions for the candidates online. Click here to visit the blog!  Please note that Ward 6 and 7 are the only Wards with primaries on Tuesday.

Arts & Culture: Are They an Item?

WGBH radio proclaims it is Boston's arts and culture station. SCI reports that during 2006-2007, it systematically queried the people of Woburn and learned that above all other realistic improvements they want more arts and cultural opportunities in the city. SCI subsequently received a grant to spur efforts to deliver them.

Tanner Tavern - local bistro plus

Whether you'd like to grab a good lunch, a light dinner, a hearty gourmet meal, or simply enjoy a beer or glass of wine with friendly folk, I'd highly recommend visitng the Tanner Tavern of Main Street (across from Cousins). Their wide menu has something good for everyone, and the local talk is there too for sports, politics, events, etc. They are a great addition to downtown Woburn, providing local fare with a local flair!
