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.

Update from Rodney Flynn: To let you all
know..............the Bird is home safe.........thanks everyone

Normally, absolutely nothing, but this week Woburn Aikikai is conducting a food drive as part of its upcoming Aikido seminar on Aug. 25 to benefit the Council of Social Concern Food Pantry in Woburn.

Boston pride continued to build for the Bengals, the city kids whose national basketball win is finally getting noticed.

Yesterday the Roxbury and Dorchester fifth-graders - champs of the Amateur Athletic Union Tournament in July - got the perfect prize for young athletes: new sneakers.

Thanks to the generosity of George Alberecht and George Martell of Woburn Foreign Motors, the Bengals’ 10 team members and three coaches are wearing new Air Jordans.
