Holiday House Tour

Once again the city of Woburn enjoyed a festive afternoon at the SCI Woburn Holiday House Tour this Sunday.  Seven homes were featured on this year’s tour, allowing community members the chance to explore the city while getting into the holiday spirit.  As in years past, this event brought varied groups of people together, connecting neighbors and strengthening their ties within the local community.
 
Many thanks go out to all the wonderful people who made this year’s Holiday House Tour such a success.  We could not have done it without all the committee members, house hosts, sponsors, and volunteers.  As always, if you would like to learn more about how to get involved with next year’s Holiday House Tour, please contact Karen at krice@socialcapitalinc.org
