paint paletteLast reminder! The final date to enter information to our website is fast approaching! We are close to wrapping up a list of all artist and culture-related events in the Woburn area to be put into an artist directory and calendar that will be released later in the spring. We strongly encourage any artist, in whatever medium you may prefer, to register on our website here. Our deadline for getting all entries into the directory is March 15th, so please sign up as soon as possible!  Once you are registered, you can list your information in our artist directory. We are also preparing to print a calendar as well to help inform people about different artists or cultural events, so if you think your event qualifies, please post it to our community calendar and get it out there and recognized!  And make sure to categorize it as an arts and culture entry.  It's a great way to advertise about your program, as well as bring people in the community together.

christmas treeThe North Suburban YMCA located at 137 Lexington Street, in partnership with Social Capital Inc. and AmeriCorps, is once again playing host to a giving tree.  If you or anybody you know is in need of some help this holiday season stop by the YMCA to let the SCI members there know and to pick up some more information. You can also stop by the YMCA to pick up a item off of the tree and find out what to do with your special pick. The tags on the tree will have the persons name, their age, and what they would like to get for the holidays. What you as a giver will do is pick a tag off of the tree and buy the item that is on the tag or something close to it and bring it back to the YMCA so we can wrap it for the recipient.  The tags on the tree will either be in the shape of a book for the gift of a book, the shape of a teddy bear for an animal gift or in the shape of a sock or other shape of a piece of clothing for a article of clothing.
