Our elderly neighbors need our help! The Woburn Council on Aging is calling all able-bodied citizens to help our seniors who are snowed in. Snow and ice removal can be a challenge for the youngest and healthiest of us, so imagine how Woburn’s elderly are coping with these severe storms. To prevent serious injuries or going without necessities, they need your help to shovel and melt ice!

If interested, please contact Joanne Collins at 781-897-5960. Many senior citizens are able to pay for services; however, some would greatly benefit from volunteer service.

On Thursday, January 20 all are invited to a special program entitled: “A Visit to Curacao”.

The program begins at 10 a.m. featuring piano music with the talents of Bob Lague. The event continues at 10:30 a.m. with a presentation of Curacao. At 11:30 a.m. regional foods will be served for a special luncheon for all participants.
