Donations still needed for July 4th fireworks

Around Town with Dick Patten
The Concord Recreation Department is in urgent need of donations to help keep the Fourth of July Celebration. Please send donations to him at the White Park Office, Concord. Please call him at 225-8690 for information. It would be a sad day if we have no celebration.

The Nevers' Band will be starting their concerts on Tuesdays this month. The first concert will be Tuesday, June 22 at 7 p.m. at the State House Plaza. It will be great to hear the band, which I understand is bigger than previous years and a new conductor.

Pineconia Grange is beginning a Farmer's Market on the Concord Heights. It will be held at The Stove Barn on Loudon Road. Jim Cusano will be coordinating this new venture. The start up date is slated for July. Please contact Jim at 568-7464.

The planning is underway for the 59th annual Concord Christmas Parade to be held on the Concord Heights on Saturday, Nov. 20 at 9:30 a.m. The theme for this year's parade "Our Holiday Wish". Please call Dick Patten at 496-2917 for information. This is my 39th year of organizing the event. Assisting Dick will be Jim Cusano as he begins to learn the chairman's role.

The same goes for the 24th annual Concord Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration slated for Friday, Nov. 26 at the State House Plaza. This event will be dedicated to the memory of the late Skip Houle who passed away recently. Dick Patten and Jim Cusano are organizing the event. Please call them for information.
