Weekly Buzz | Tons of Activities for Break Week
Enjoy family, kid, or adult activities at the library
Good Morning, Everyone!
Getting a bit of a late start, as I tend to do on vacation weeks, but I’m here with your Weekly Buzz. Expect this week to be a little light on official news, but I’ll be here with it!
If you’re running for local office, especially if your race is contested, feel free to reach out to me, as some of you already have, for an interview or podcast appearance. I hope to interview at least candidates for contested town-wide seats (School Committee and Recreation Commission) and will branch out as I’m able.
Also - there is a free citizenship information night tonight at the Woburn Public Library, offered jointly with Burlington Public Library. From the library website: “Learn the basics of becoming a U.S. citizen and details of our upcoming 10 week Citizenship course. Long-time Citizenship Instructor Mike Oliver of St. Mark Community Education, will answer all your questions.” If you or anyone you know has questions about citizenship, this will be a valuable program. See below for more information.
