meet and greet eventLast night's community meet and greet event was enjoyed by all. It provided great opportunities for new members of the community to familiarize themselves with various organizations in Woburn. Turnout was good, and the food was fantastic! Lots of thanks goes out to Bahamas Grill for providing food for the event, as well as the North Suburban YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club, the Council of Social Concern, the Woburn Senior Center, WREN, and Safe Harbor Community Programs for taking part in welcoming these new members to the city of Woburn.

Here are a few pictures of our friends and neighbors who participated in the tour. If you have any pictures or stories that you would like to tell this Holiday season, please share them with us.
