Relay for Life here in Woburn

Relay for Life

Woburn will host its 6th Relay for Life, to benefit the American Cancer Society, on May 18-19, 2012.  The event, which begins at 6:00 p.m., is an overnight walk at Library Field.  Relay for Life starts with a survivor lap, an inspirational time for everyone to rally and celebrate the victories we’ve achieved over cancer.  After dark, silence falls and we walk in silence to light of luminaria lanterns to remember loved ones who lost their battles with cancer.  At midnight, Woburnites will participate in a fight back ceremony and will make personal commitments and pledges to save lives.

Watercolor Demonstration

New Horizons at Choate

Join the Woburn Guild of Artists for a watercolor painting demonstration with Joan Rademacher on Thursday, April 12.

A graduate of the Art Institute of Boston, Joan Rademacher pursued a career in commercial art before developing an interest in watercolor. Her work is in private collections in the United States and abroad, and also in many corporate collections. "This medium of watercolor, when applied loosely and with distinct brush strokes can be a maverick. It often leads you through your painting but always with excitement and wonder." Come and watch this talented artist show us how she does it.
