Every week, City Manager Tom Aspell sends out his city memo, updating us all on the comings and goings and what-have-yous around the city. Well, we didn’t run it in the Insider last week, so we combined them into a big ol’ double dose of a city memo.
More food donations
Aspell writes that the Concord Human Services Department received another generous donation of food this week from Concord High School students Dillon Emerson and Matt Curtis.
Aspell also writes that Marty Bender from Temple Beth Jacob brought in food collected from the congregation, as well as chicken and hamburger. Many thanks to Dillon, Matt, Marty and the generous congregation of Temple Beth Jacob from Aspell and the Human Services Department.
Blossom Hill and Concord Calvary cemeteries have been entered in the National Register of Historic Places, Aspell writes. The National Register is the official federal listing of significant heritage resources worthy of preservation, rehabilitation or re-use. According to the memo, the first project to be addressed will be the roof of the Perkins Chapel, located near the entrance to Blossom Hill Cemetery.
Look for a new feature about Concord’s historic cemeteries and who’s buried in them in upcoming issues of the Insider.
