Youth Shoveling

We are seeking volunteers to help rake leaves and shovel snow for Woburn residents in need. For the past several years we have worked along side the Woburn Senior Center to identify people in need and match them with volunteers across Woburn. We are working to find some matches again this year. If you are able to volunteer this year to rake leaves or shovel out a senior in a neighborhood near you, please click here email Jenna and she will work to match you with someone that is in need.

The Human Library

This event aims to create a safe space where one-on-one dialogue can lead to greater understanding, compassion and acceptance. Our goal, here, is to encourage community members (our “books” share their stories with other community members (“readers”, if you like) in short, one-on-one conversations.

Share your unique story of hardship, challenge and triumph in short one-on-one conversations. Real stories, real people, real conversations. 

Join the Woburn Host Lions Club on Sunday, October 27 from 1-3pm for their 65th Annual Halloween Parade!

Every year this parade draws in a crowd of at least 80,000 people to see more than 90 floats from local groups and organizations. The parade hosts over 25 bands such as the University of New Hampshire, Mass Maritime, Waltham American Legion and local community bands! This parade is sure to be a fun time for the entire family!

The parade will kick off at 1pm sharp. The Parade route starts at Crowne Plaza/Showcase Cinema traveling south on Main St to Woburn Center continuing onto Lake Ave at the Winchester line ending at Horn pond. The parade route is 2.2 miles long and normally takes just about 1.5 hours to walk the route end-to-end.
