WORLDFEST Logo

The Worldfest planning is in full swing and we are looking for community members who are interested in helping to plan the event as well as local vendors and performers who are interested in taking part in this year's fest. 

The committee meets every 2-3 weeks, spread-out at first with frequency increasing as the event approaches. If you feel that the meetings may be too much of a commitment, we are also looking for people that would like to help by doing other outreach or tasks related to the event. Contact me and I can help find the best fit for you!

In the past, the residents of Woburn and Winchester have helped Social Concern to serve "neighbors in need" by donating food items to the Food Pantry. Once again, Social Concern is asking residents of both Woburn and Winchester to help stock the shelves. With a little help from everyone, they will be able to fill their shelves and ensure that individuals and families have nutritious foods available to them.
