#4. Calling All Runners!… Westford’s own Paul Curtin (pictured), completed the Lake Placid Ironman this summer and he attributed that in large part to a Running Injury Assessment Clinic at Emerson Hospital here in Westford.

Speaking of that clinic, it’s happening again!

The clinic will take place on Sept. 27 from 8 to 11 a.m. at Emerson’s Center for Sports Rehabilitation and Specialty Services at 133 Littleton Road.

For more information, call 978-287-3777.

#5.  Words of Encouragement From Pastor Steve of the Lowell Assembly of God

 

Lazy hands make a man poor,

but diligent hands bring wealth.

Prov 10:4 (NIV)
