ConcordWalking challenge

The City of Concord Parks and Recreation Department is excited to announce our partnership with the Greater Concord Chamber of Commerce (NH), Concord, Mass., Recreation Department and Concord Chamber of Commerce (MA) to bring our residents a fun way to stay active! Through Monday, June 15, the two recreation departments will be collecting registrations for Concord to Concord, a 63-mile virtual walk, bike or run. Participants simply register by May 31 with Concord Parks and Recreation Department, complete the 63 miles, mail in their log sheet and they will be entered into a raffle to win a prize pack for a day trip to Concord, Mass., to be enjoyed when regular business resumes. All participants will receive a T-shirt with their registration. Concord Parks & Recreation asks that all participants adhere to the social distancing guidelines in their community.  For more information about this program or to register, please visit  or call 225-8690.

Toss your cap

Jobs for America's Graduates, a national nonprofit serving 75,000 youth across 39 states, including New Hampshire, is thrilled to be working with T-Mobile to celebrate this year’s graduating class – a class unlike any other. As graduations are being canceled, postponed or modified due to the COVID-19 pandemic in New Hampshire and nationwide, T-Mobile will help bring the graduation tradition of the cap toss to life virtually through TikTok. With the #TossYourCap Challenge, students, their families and friends, and other supporters can post TikTok videos with #TossYourCap. For each post, T-Mobile will make a $5 donation to JAG, up to $200,000. To participate in the #TossYourCap Challenge, post a video on TikTok with #TossYourCap between May 14 and May 31. Open TikTok and head to the Discover page, then click into the T-Mobile hashtag challenge or search for #TossYourCap. Find the challenge song, “All I Do Is Win (feat. T-Pain)” by DJ Khaled, click “use this sound” and get your cap ready! Anybody can participate in the #TossYourCap Challenge – you don’t need to be a graduating senior or JAG student to enter.

ConcordCreche restoration

The holiday season is months away, but for members of the Concord Council Knights of Columbus 112 and Concord Grange 322, major renovations are needed for the Christmas Creche which has been placed on the State House/City Plaza since the early 1950s every Christmas Seas except for one year. This past holiday season following New Years Day, the members met to dismantle the Creche. However, in the process the trailer had an axle break and had to tow it to Immaculate Heart of Mary Church where it had been stored for a few years. The figurines are also stored at IHM. The building made of wood has rotted to the point that it has be torn down. The members of the Knights of Columbus are meeting onJune 6 at 8 .am. at the Immaculate of Mary Church in the parking lot to begin the process of repairing the manger and trailer. It is going to cost $10,000 to get it ready for the coming holiday season. The are hoping someone will have a low bed trailer that is not in use and would be donated to the Council and Grange to build the Creche on. If someone would like to donate money to help with the restoration, please send a check or money order to the Concord Knights of Columbus co Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 180 Loudon Road, Concord, NH 03301. Any amount is more than welcomed. No donation is to small. Please contact Matt Poulin, the Grand Knight at his email for information.
