"Due to the sale of the West
Medford Congregational Church, we have had to change our
Annual Meeting venue. The Church has been used for many
years and it has been a challenge to find a comparable
facility at a reasonable price. We have chosen the
Woburn Elks Lodge #908, which has a large hall with
many amenities. Air conditioning, an ample parking lot, a
nice kitchen facility, highway accessibility from Rtes 93
and 95 (Rte. 128), and clean restrooms, all make this
place very attractive for our meeting.
