This local branch of the national Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States organization, VFW Post 529, is named…More for George Dilboy, a onetime Somerville resident of Greek descent who received the Medal of Honor for his efforts in World War I.
The George Dilboy Post is located on Summer Street just outside of Davis Square in the Winter Hill Bank building, with its entrance on Summer Street adjacent to the parking lot. This local branch holds monthly meetings, hosts fundraisers, does community service projects, participates in national scholarship contests and reaches out to local veterans. The George Dilboy Post also rents out its hall for functions and events.
Somerville Traffic and Parking Office 133 Holland St, Somerville, MA02144 After enough time parking on the infuriatingly confusing streets of Somerville you will no doubt find yourself at this…More Traffic and Parking Office. Here you can apply for parking passes, get those bright orange emergency parking sandwich boards which make moving much easier or contest a ticket. Inside expect a post office like situation of a long, slow moving line bunched up before several closed walk-up booths and one open window. Allow more than just a few minutes if you find yourself planning for a morning at the Traffic and Parking Office.
