Concord Celebrates a D-Day Hero’s 98th Birthday!

 

On Saturday, May 9th, over 100 cars with hundreds of people lined up to celebrate Peter Orlando’s 98th Birthday. Peter is a Concordian and a D-Day Hero.

Cars full of adults, kids and dogs lined up and drove by the Concord WWII Veteran who sat in his bench in is driveway and cheerfully waved and thanked all those who drove by. At one point, a group gathered to sing him Happy Birthday and Peter stood up, waved and said “For once, I am speechless. Thank you very much!”.

Check out the video on LivingConcord Instagram page.

Cars honking, flags waving, birthday banners blowing – it was a wonderful sight and a great way to bring the community together to honor and celebrate one very special resident.

Here are some ways to support Emerson Hospital and the employees right now

Sign up for the Emerson Hospital 5K Virtual Run-Walk for Cancer Cure

Registration is now open for Emerson Hospital’s annual 5k Run~Walk for Cancer Care. Because cancer never stops, even during a pandemic, all proceeds go directly to support patients who receive cancer care at Emerson Hospital. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, this year’s event is virtual and will take place Monday, May 11, through Monday, May 25, 2020. Visit www.EmersonHospital.org/5k for event details, to register, or make a donation to support cancer care at Emerson Hospital. All participants who complete the 5k and submit their results by May 25 will receive a medal and other prizes.

Consider purchasing (or doing with a few neighbors / friends) a Care Package for Emerson Hospital Staff from Haute Coffee.

Each $50 Haute Care Package includes a box of 10 made-from-scratch Haute Treats and 4 Cold Brews Coffees & 4 Iced Teas!

Haute Coffee will deliver care packages M-F at 2:30 PM and it has become something that the staff at Emerson really look forward to as an afternoon pick me up!
