Concord is an extraordinary town and it makes us especially grateful that in times like this there are so many people, of all ages, to support and connect with each other.
Read about some Concordians….
Concord Middle School 6th grade students Laiya Pavlov (on left of photos with her baby sister Arya) and Nika Lysyj (on right of photos) of Concord spent their spring break bringing cheer to isolated elders by creating chalk art outside their homes while maintaining physical distancing. Thank you, Laiya & Nika!
Every week the Edmunds neighborhood selects one restaurant to support for Friday night dinner. Everyone calls in their own order and then one car goes to do the pick up at a designated time. Here is the May Day delivery, complete with additional tulips in honor of May Day that Holly Cratsley added to her neighbors’ bags. Great way to bring neighborhood together to support local business and help each other by minimizing trips. Thanks Holly & Edmunds neighborhood for the fabulous idea!
MAY IS OLDER AMERICANS MONTH!
Concord Council on Aging Recognizes all Concord Residents Age 60+
The theme for 2020 is “Make Your Mark.” The “you” in that theme refers to all of us, urging the younger among us to do something in support of seniors, and for the seniors among us to volunteer, share their stories and get involved in our neighborhoods, this year, in safe and protective ways.
Friends, neighbors are doing wonderful things do make these quarantine birthdays special… Birthday parades are everywhere, for all ages. Consider organizing or being a part of a birthday parade for someone celebrating a May Birthday!
