Aug. 22, the day after Concord's surprise tornado, golfers enjoyed beautiful weather as they took to the links at Rotary's Thomas R. Huckins Memorial Golf Tournament. The event raised money for the Scholarship Fund of Concord and Carlisle (CCSF). Since becoming a community affiliate of CCSF in 2006 Rotary has awarded 96 scholarships totaling $173,606. Proceeds from the 2016 tournament will increase that total. We credit the tournament’s success to support from sponsors, golfers and volunteers. Special thanks to our Platinum Sponsors, Emerson Hospital, Hammond Residential Realty and Newbury Court. Tee and green sponsors are listed below at "read more."
Two days after the Golf Tournament, Rotarians grilled burgers and hotdogs and served a cookout for over 100 guests at the Council on Aging at the Harvey Wheeler Community Center. John Dow presided at the grill with the assistance of Chip Bogosian, Marvin Thomas, Suzanne Greenough, Steve Kirk and many others. Lots of fun for Rotarians and the Council on Aging guests alike!

The Sunrise Satellite meeting of the Rotary Club of Concord hosted an incredibly dedicated young woman at their Aug. 16 2016 meeting. 14-year-old Kylee McCumber of Leominster told how, at age 10, she provided 10 students who were receiving subsidized meals during the school week with food for the weekends. Now her non-profit organization, Kylee’s Kare Kits for Kidz, feeds over 300 children on a weekly basis. Learn more at www.kyleeskarekitsforkidz.org. We will be holding a food drive for Kylee soon.
