There will be a blood drive for Children's Hospital at the Woburn Masonic Lodge on Arlington Road Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The drive is in honor of Caitlyn MacPhee, a Woburn girl who has had several transfusions at Children's Hospital, which have allowed her to live a full life.

5) Headline in history

Let's take a walk through Woburn's history, shall we? A headline in the newspaper regarding Dec. 14 events in Woburn was:

  • 1939—Woburn Murder Mystery Deepens—Police still searching for "clews" to the murder of Jeremiah P. Sudbury, 69, who was killed in his tailor shop two days earlier.
