Pride Pops Up at True Brew again
In June, more than 200 LGBTQ and allies popped up at True Brew Barista. So over Labor Day weekend we are ending summer the way it began.
For our next gathering, we’re headed back to True Brew Barista for good music, great people and amazing food and drinks.
Gather at True Brew on Saturday at 6 p.m. to build community among New Hampshire’s LGBTQ and allies. There’s no cover charge or registration necessary.
Rotary Club gives to Players
On Aug. 20, the Rotary Club of Concord presented the Community Players of Concord with a donation of $15,000 to support the organization’s need to make major repairs to its 21-year-old studio on Josiah Bartlett Road. Accepting the gift from Rotary President Warren Emley were Chris Demers, president of the Players, and board member Ellen Burger.
The Players have been supplying costumes for amateur stage productions; providing stage sets and props; workshops for directing, set building and acting; children’s theater workshops and more for 92 years. Thousands of community members have benefited from having access to the Players’ studio home where the magic of theater is created.
Emley says of the Community Players, “We realize that their organization continues to contribute so much to the quality of life of the citizens in our community and has done so for more than nine decades. Our club is pleased to help as a major sponsor in support of this important cause.”
President of the Players Chris Demers says, “The Rotary Club of Concord’s donation will make a huge difference in our quest to take care of our home now and into the future. Thanks to their generosity, our studio will continue to house our organization as we continue to serve our community in the next 92 years.”
