Community Awards held tonight

I hope everyone is enjoying the spring/early summer weather.

The annual Pineconia Grange # 322 Community Awards Night will held Monday, April 19 at 7 p.m. at Dame School School, Canterbury Road.
The event will be open to the public with refreshments served following the awards presentations. Dick Patten, in his 39th year of coordinating the awards event, will present include the Police Officer of the Year, Firefighter of the Year, Citizen, Educator, and more.
Please call Dick Patten at 496-2917 for info.

The City Council meeting held Monday evening drew a few more people than usual. It was nice to see students from the 6th grade reading essays on "If they were Mayor" which included some interesting ideas. The Concord Steam proposal drew several people to speak all in favor of their request.

The annual Fourth of July celebration is once again in jeopardy! David Gill presented his report that reported donations are down from last year. He is meeting with a broadcasting firm this week and hoping to draw up a plan to raise donations. City Councilor Dick Patten requested the City Council to delay any vote in canceling the event until next month giving him a chance to help raise the funds. Funds are needed to help pay for the expenses, such as police, general services, fireworks, and more! A total of $7-9,000 dollars is needed to help pay for the celebration. It doesn't matter how much you can send, any amount is welcomed! The fireworks draws people from all over Concord as well as Boscawen, Pittsfield, Manchester, Portsmouth, Nashua, and more! It would be sad if we, the capitol city didn't have a celebration.
