meet and greet eventLast night's community meet and greet event was enjoyed by all. It provided great opportunities for new members of the community to familiarize themselves with various organizations in Woburn. Turnout was good, and the food was fantastic! Lots of thanks goes out to Bahamas Grill for providing food for the event, as well as the North Suburban YMCA, the Boys and Girls Club, the Council of Social Concern, the Woburn Senior Center, WREN, and Safe Harbor Community Programs for taking part in welcoming these new members to the city of Woburn.

New Woburn residents and anyone looking to learn more about Woburn happenings are invited to the free Woburn Community Meet and Greet. Come learn about the fun and exciting ways to connect with your neighbors and community on June 17th from 6:30pm -8:00 pm.  Join Social Capital Inc.(SCI) and other community organizations that are eager to share what they offer you and opportunities for you to become more involved.   The Woburn Communtiy Meet and Greet will be held at the New Horizons at Choate-Terrace Lounge located at 21 Warren Ave here in Woburn. 

Special thanks to everybody who made the volunteer recognition event such a huge success last Thursday.  SCI kicked off National Volunteer Week by joining with Woburn Mayor Tom McLaughlin to host a volunteer recognition reception at Woburn City Hall on April 23. City Council President, Charlie Doherty, was also in attendance to hand out certificates to over 75 local volunteers from a wide variety of local community organizations.  Massachusetts State Representatives, Jim Dwyer and Jay Kaufman, presented a citation from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to Donald Manzelli.

Please join SCI in saying thank you to all the volunteers who make Woburn a great place to live & work.  If you see a volunteer please take the minute to stop what you are doing and say thank you for all the hard work that they do.

During National Volunteer (4/19-4/25), SCI and the City of Woburn will be honoring Woburn community volunteers for all the hard work they do to make Woburn a great place to live and work.  A reception for volunteers at City Hall is a highlight of the week's activities.  If you are an active volunteer or a involved with a community group that would like to have your volunteers invited to the event, please contact Rick Miles, 781-935-2244, or at rmiles@
