This fall, the League will be sponsoring a table at the Westford Food Truck festival on Saturday, October 17 from 11am – 4pm. Please help volunteer to help staff the table throughout the day. The Festival, held at the Abbot School, has grown in popularity, so come help tell others about the League before or after you check out the delicious food and other offerings at the festival. No training is needed, as we’ll just have materials to hand out to interested attendees, and we will be reminding everyone to attend Special Town Meeting. Please sign up online at: http://tinyurl.com/LWVFoodTruck. Half hour slots are available throughout the day. For more information about the Festival, go to westfordfoodtruckfestival.com

Craisin pecan bead? Asiago cheese bread? Anadama bread? Sample these delicious breads while local, veteran baker Denali Delmar demonstrates how you can easily make varieties of crusty artisan breads with a “miracle” no-knead method in 3 easy steps! Based off a New York Times no-knead method, Denali’s modified method will leave no mess on the counter and no kneading at all.
The fee is $20 and includes a demonstration, delicious samples, and Denali’s prized recipe! The fee will be collected at the door. All proceeds go to support the Westford League of Women Voters. The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan issues-oriented organization of women and men who encourage informed and active participation in government. The League does not support or oppose any candidate or political party. Please RSVP to email@example.com so we are sure to have enough bread for everyone!

Amid the current discussions of traffic in Westford, we thought it would be helpful to make a report from the League’s Forum on traffic in Westford, written in January 2003. Comparing the solutions proposed then, to the problems and solutions being proposed following the most recent NMCOG traffic study in town highlights the continued changes to traffic patterns in town. If you are interested in the current traffic and parking issues in town, reading this report gives you additional history and insight into the challenges Westford faces dealing with increased traffic and development. Download and read the report here.
The Westford LWV’s latest project has been to put together a guide for any town residents who are considering running for local office. This guide will be available as a printed booklet at Town Hall and the J.V. Fletcher Library, but it is also available online. This guide is a great way to learn more about the process of running for local office, and draws on the experiences and wisdom of many League members and residents who have gone through the process.
