Worcester celebrations: Disability advocates and tasting fundraiser for child hunger

I generally stick to Southborough news and events. After all, I can’t keep up with all that’s going on in neighboring towns, let alone Worcester. But this week’s a bit quieter than usual and these two upcoming events seemed worth sharing.

ADA 25th Anniversary Celebration – July 25

The City of Worcester is inviting the public to a free event celebrating the milestone:
