Concord Online

You can learn about all these topics - and many more - at Concord High School's student news site, The Crimson Review. The site is maintained by student journalists and offers a buffet of multimedia.

Fire department museum

Help kids with cancer

You'd look good with a shaved head

The Draft Sports Bar & Grill, 67 S. Main St., has teamed up with members of the Manchester and Hooksett fire departments for the third annual St. Baldrick's charity event. The Draft and these firemen have issued a lofty challenge to everyone who wants to help raise money to eliminate childhood cancer: Be a hero for kids with cancer by shaving your head in return for pledges of financial support from friends and family. Participants find that shaving their head in solidarity with the 160,000 children who are diagnosed with cancer each year is a small sacrifice in comparison to what these children…
