The mission of SCI Woburn is to strengthen the community by connecting diverse individuals and organizations through civic engagement initiatives. The SCI Woburn website serves as a community resource connecting residents to volunteer opportunities, community events and resources.

Last year’s Impact Woburn Healthy Communities planning process identified increasing arts & cultural opportunities as a top priority. As a result, we are pleased to announce the new Woburn Arts & Culture Today collaborative project. This will help enhance existing arts & cultural opportunities and create new events that use the arts as a community building tool. Plans for the project include coffee houses, an artist directory and arts & culture calendar.

Thanks to committee member David Eggleton for his work on getting this initiative started and to Impress Graphics for their logo design work. We look forward to working with all of our collaborating partners on this project. For more information or to get involved, contact Andrew by clicking here. This project is funded by a Healthy Communities grant from CHNA 15 and Lahey Clinic.

 

 

Hi everyone, this is Andrew, live from our table at the Woburn Business Association Expo at the Woburn Hilton. Here we will be engaging businesses and organizations that stop by our table and we will be showcasing this website. This is an exciting endeavor and I look forward to seeing all the people I will get to meet tonight.

The City’s Preliminary Election is this coming Tuesday, September 18. The final Election will be Tuesday, November 6. SCI has launched an Elections Blog with a list of certified candidates; a link to where to vote; and links to relevant news stories on the elections from the local papers. All candidates are encouraged to register for the site, as in the coming weeks site users will be asked to submit their questions for the candidates online. Click here to visit the blog!  Please note that Ward 6 and 7 are the only Wards with primaries on Tuesday.

Molly's Misfits played their Celtic music to a big crowd last Friday night. People of all ages enjoyed the show on this beautiful evening, and a number of young fiddlers and Irish step dancers accompanied the band. This concert was sponsored by Sean P. Coakley.

Many thanks to all of the local businesses that sponsored the concerts this summer. For a full listing of concerts this summer and their sponsors, visit http://sciwoburn.org/programs/concerts.

Did you happen to catch the rainbow over Woburn Center last Wednesday night? I only had my camera phone with me so couldn't truly do it justice. There was a wild wind and rainstorm, followed by this full rainbow This photo was taken from Library Field following a dramatic Woburn Rotary softball victory. We played right through the storm.


Despite much of the day being rather shaky in terms of weather, by late afternoon the rain had stopped and the sun even broke through! So the show with Joey Vellucci Band went on, and it was another good one. We were especially pleased to get this one in because Friday's sponsor, Woburn Mall/KGI Properties, had their shows last summer rained out. This explains Mall Manger Lori Medeiros' smile as she joins SCI's Mike Sances at the concert (photo below).
