Names Needed for Honor Roll Monument

American Flag

The Friends of Woburn Veterans is looking for names of those who have fought for our country to include on the new monument being erected in the Common.  If you or a family member served in the armed forces during a time period of war, please consider adding to this new memorial.  It is estimated that there will be 13,000- 15,000 names on this new monument, which will include veterans from the Revolutionary War all the way to Operation Enduring Freedom. 

Applications for adding a name to the new monument can be picked up at the Woburn Public Library, the Veterans Office, or online at the City of Woburn’s website,

Volunteer Opportunity of the Week!


The North Suburban YMCA is a family center, and that means there are a lot of kids in the building every day.
