Dear Pack 502 Friends & Families

Our Sister Scout’s of Woburn have coordinated with Spence Farm, located at 30 Wyman Street,  for "A Weekend for Bridget". On December 5th, 6th and 7th, Spence Farm will open its doors from 9AM. to 5PM.  for retail sales of Christmas trees, wreaths, roping and decorations. Spence Farm hasn’t sold to the public for several years…they are strictly wholesale…but have agreed to do this for Bridget. Spence Farm will contribute $5 from every tree and $2 from every wreath plus a percentage of decorations sold will go directly to the Bridget Sweeney Fund.

The North Suburban YMCA is offering swimming lessons over the week of April vacation for a minimum donation of $25 each lesson. All proceeds go directly to the Reach Out Annual Fund, the YMCA's financial assistance program, which gives financial assistance to families and children in need, ensuring that no one is denied access to YMCA programs. If you sign up for more than one lesson or donate $50 or more, you will receive complimentary tickets to a pizza party with a Boston Bruin.

Community Social CapitalistsBOSTON--Today Mayor Tom McLaughlin joined Woburn-based Social Capital Inc. (SCI) to recognize five outstanding “Community Social Capitalists” at the SCI Social Capitalist Luncheon which drew over 200 business and community leaders. SCI also presented the 2008 SCI Idealist Award to Dain and Constance Perry of Charlestown.

A strong contingent of Woburn business and community leaders traveled to Boston for this new SCI luncheon event. Other Woburn elected officials joining Mayor McLaughlin were State Representative Jay Kaufman, City Council President Charlie Doherty and School Committee member Chris Kisiel. And Boys & Girls Club Executive Director was the lucky winner of a basketball signed by all of the members of this year’s Boston Celtics!

Danversbank, which has a branch in Woburn, was a major event sponsor and had a full table at the luncheon. Woburn Branch Manager Anne Denaro served on the Social Capitalist Luncheon Host Committee, and Danversbank Community Reinvestment Officer Kevin Noyes was recognized as a Community Social Capitalist.

“We were pleased to have so many join us from Woburn,” commented SCI President David Crowley. “As SCI expands across the state, the continued support here where we have our roots is much appreciated.”

Mayor McLaughlin was joined in presenting the Community Social Capitalist Awards by Nancy Stolberg, who was recently appointed by Governor Patrick to lead the Commonwealth Corps.

We're looking forward to an exciting event this Wednesday! We have a wonderful group of people to recognize, and a great program planned. We have gotten a terrific response-the event is basically sold out. If you have contacted SCI to reserve a seat, you should be all set to check-in between 11:30-Noon. Contact SCI at 781.935.2244 with any questions about your status, or to be added to the waiting list in the event there should be a cancellation.
