2) Fair Trade Craft Fair

Join the United Methodist Church this weekend for a Fair Trade Craft Fair. Held on Friday and Saturday, this fair will feature fair trade jewelry and handicrafts from around the world. But there will also be items from closer to home—NuPath in Woburn, in fact. Click here for more information. 


3) Snow drifts in overnight

According to the  National Weather Service's pinpointed forecast for Woburn, we can enjoy more sunshine today, but it's going to be awfully chilly. Temperatures are only expected to reach the mid-30s. Snow will drift into Woburn overnight, and turn to rain on Saturday. Both rain and snow will be with us on Sunday, says the NWS.


4) In case you missed it

The City Council determined a Woburn property was a public nuisance, and is thinking about giving the same tag to another home. Find out which homes and why here.
