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!”.

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.

Concord Museum: Conversation with Annette Gordon-Reed

Annette Gordon-Reed, Harvard Law School Professor and Pulitzer-Prize winner for The Hemingses of Monticello, will discuss her newest book, On Juneteenth which provides a historian’s view of the country’s long road to Juneteenth, recounting both its origins in Texas and the enormous hardships that African Americans have endured in the century since, from Reconstruction through Jim Crow and beyond. Weaving together American history, dramatic family chronicles, and searing episodes of memoir, Gordon-Reed—herself a Texas native and the descendant of enslaved people brought to Texas as early as the 1820s—forges a new and profoundly truthful narrative of her home state, with implications for us all.

This event is live-streamed on the Concord Museum’s website and YouTube channel.

This program is part of Celebrate Concord Week and is sponsored by Mass Humanities and the Bridge Street Fund.
