The Board of Selectmen proclaim the Month of September as "CHILDHOOD CANCER AWARENESS MONTH."

Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease among children in our country today. This tragic disease is detected in more than 16,000 of our country's young people each and every year.

The Worcester Robert H. Goddard Lions Club is sponsoring the initiative this year collaborating with the Boys and Girls Club of Worcester to create beautiful handmade cards for hospitalized children.
