Dear Woburn Chamber of Commerce Member,
I am writing you on behalf of the Woburn Kiwanis Club and some of our upcoming events. Woburn Kiwanis is made up mostly of business owners who work or live in Woburn. We give time and money in order to donate to the youth of Woburn, surrounding communities and lastly to Kiwanis International that runs program for the youth of the world. A few examples of who we serve are the Woburn Boys and Girls Club, Woburn High School and Northeast Regional High School scholarship funds, Woburn Council of Social Concern, Hospice Care, Kiwanis Pediatric Trauma Institute (KPTI) at the New England Medical Center, Woburn H.S. Academic Awards Banquet and our own Terrific Kid Program, Best Buddies, The Builders Club and the Key Club. We have sponsored many local sports teams and have donated to specific requests based on need.
Two events you could help with are Flag Day and our annual Golf Tournament.
This year, as in the past, we will be publishing a supplement to the Woburn Daily Times that will run a few days prior to the event.

Tocci Building Corp is Hosting a Talent Show Fundraiser and You’re Invited!
Tocci’s own Marvin Lahoud recently made us aware of his efforts to welcome Syrian refugees into his corner of the world in Lebanon. His organization works with refugee families, and has a focus on helping those families with special needs.
When Marvin moved here, we asked how we could help, he told us the operating budget, the financials needed, and we decided to throw the best (and possibly weirdest) fundraiser ever you’ve ever seen, a company talent show. 100% of the proceeds will benefit Marvin’s church in Lebanon where it can do the most good.
Help the cause by joining us for our party! It’ll be a fun-filled night with food, drink, games and a talent show!
*Sturday, June 9th from 6:30 to 9:30 PM

Annual Meeting Wrap Up
On December 6th the Woburn Chamber of Commerce held their Annual Meeting at the Crowne Plaza. The meeting included a panel discussion on the new Marijuana legislation and it’s potential impact on the city and businesses. Participating in the panel were Adam Hamel from McLane Middleton, Mayor Scott Galvin, Police Chief Robert Ferullo, and Substance Abuse Coordinator Richard Jolly. It was an interesting and lively discussion. We deeply appreciate all of our panel members for taking the time to participate and add their voice to the discussion.
Every year at our Annual Meeting we award a member with the Humanitarian Award. This member may be a business that consistently steps up to support charitable causes or someone who has gone to extraordinary lengths to be generous through the course of the year. This year we chose to honor John Casey of Locks and Keys. John is someone who qualifies as a Humanitarian for many reasons as he quietly and unceremoniously contributes in many ways to those in need. This past year, however John’s generosity was recognized by many in the community. After the downtown fire that destroyed several Main Street businesses, John reached out to P&M Locksmiths to offer his own space and equipment until they were able to find a new space. Thank you John Casey for being an example of Humanitarianism for all of us in 2016.
The award was presented by State Representative James Dwyer and City Council President Richard Haggerty.
Following the formalities of the Annual Meeting, our Holiday Celebration kicked off at Scoreboards. We were treated to a delicious meal which included a pasta station and a carving station. It was wonderful to have time to catch up with everyone and to meet new members. Our membership grew steadily throughout 2016 and it is great to see our more seasoned members welcoming the newer ones into the association. Our New Member Spotlights are a fun way to introduce new people and businesses to the association. Please watch your email for these spotlights and you will have something to talk about when you meet our new members at events.
Silent Auction for The Council of Social Concern
A silent auction was held to benefit the Council of Social Concern as part of our Holiday Celebration.

Our Annual Meeting is more than a time to take care of Association business. It is a time to celebrate and honor some of the best parts of the year. Included in that is our yearly surprise of our recipient of the Humanitarian Award. The Business of the Year Award is given to a business who has had an exceptional year based upon growth, community involvement or other substantial developments. The business climate of the upcoming year is addressed and this year the conversation will surround the passage of the new Marijuana Legislation. Specifically we will examine how it will impact business. The evening will begin at 5:30 pm on December 6th at the Crowne Plaza.
Our Holiday Celebration is graciously being planned by Catherine Stevens and her team at the Crowne Plaza/Scoreboards. We will enjoy delicious passed hor d’ouerves, a carving station as well as a pasta station. While we wine and dine we can browse the items up for auction to benefit the Council of Social Concern. Our members have generously donated a huge variety of items and with 100% of the proceeds going to the Council, you can shop and do good at the same time!
2016 has been a year of great growth and excitement at the Woburn Chamber of Commerce. Please come and help us celebrate our success and move forward into 2017 with great hope and faith that more is on the horizon.
