The Town Common is a non-partisan, community based organization whose goal is to provide actual and virtual gathering spaces to promote respectful listening, critical thinking, and constructive conversation; inspire community action and engagement; and facilitate connection, collaboration and individual and organizational initiative.
Come to the Winchester Farmers' Market on the Winchester Common on Saturday, September 21 from 9:30 am to 1:30 pm! The Community Organizations Fair is a wonderful opportunity to meet over 50 local organizations and service communities, as well as a chance for organizations to network with the other organizations that have an impact on the Winchester community. Some of the organizations offer grants for schools, teachers, art and science; others help with social justice and environmental issues, offer music lessons, all-abilities creative workshops and ASL classes, and produce video and podcasts—among many other activities. Learn what they have to offer, and take advantage of the opportunity to get involved!
The Community Organizations Fair is co-sponsored by the Town Common Task Force.

All are welcome and encouraged to attend!
What if Winchester created a unique opportunity for youth to add their voice to important community conversations, especially those that matter most to them?
What if that voice were fully supported by town management, schools, town-wide youth organizations, faith groups, parents and businesses enabling youth to not only pose critical questions but genuinely collaborate on real solutions?
What would they identify as priorities, and how could the adult community best listen, learn, and support their efforts to strengthen our community?
This community conversation, planned in conjunction with town youth, seeks to ensure that the talents and perspectives of our youth are an integral part of building a caring, connected and inclusive community.
