Help Woburn Win a Free Orchard!

Woburn's Spence Farm is in the running to get a free fruit orchard from Edy's Fruit Bars. When I last checked, Woburn was 5th in the voting. My understanding is that if we can hold that place by May 31st, we will be one of the winners of this great resource to bring more fresh fruit and trees to our community. 

You can vote every day in this contest. Visit the contest site here, and enter Woburn's zip code of 01801 to find and vote for the Woburn entry. It is listed as "Woburn Agricultural Commission", the entity that has submitted the grant. Be sure to tell your friends you've voted and ask them to do the same! Here is the link one more time:

Pastel Painting Demonstration

On Thursday, May 17 at 7pm, Karla K. Cook will demonstrate her techniques for pastel painting. “If you paint what you love, people will love what you paint.  I have found that using my love of animals with my love of painting makes for a winning combination. With each animal I paint, I attempt to bring that animal’s personality through the painting to the viewer. My greatest success is seeing a smile flash across someone’s face when they look at my paintings.”  This demonstration is put on by the Woburn Guild of Artists, and will take place at New Horizons at Choate, in the Terrace Lounge.
