The mission of SCI Woburn is to strengthen the community by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. The SCI Woburn website serves as a community resource connecting residents to volunteer opportunities, community events and resources.

Welcome to our four new AmeriCorps members who have started their ten months of service in Woburn.

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.

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.

Molly's Misfits played their Celtic music to a big crowd last Friday night. People of all ages enjoyed the show on this beautiful evening, and a number of young fiddlers and Irish step dancers accompanied the band. This concert was sponsored by Sean P. Coakley.

Many thanks to all of the local businesses that sponsored the concerts this summer. For a full listing of concerts this summer and their sponsors, visit http://sciwoburn.org/programs/concerts.

Food drive to benefit Council of Social Concern this week -

What does a martial art that includes throws and break falls have to do with hunger and helping families in need? 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.
