What's Happening at Rotary Club of Concord
Members of the Rotary Club of Concord and the Rotary Club of Bedford pitched in to help renovate Habitat's two-family house on Main Street in West Concord. July heat did not slow the progress and our team turned out some laudable work. We look forward to another Build Day November 5, 2021
Eighty girls and boys along with their CITs and staff enjoyed a Rotary-sponsored summer field day at the Boys & Girls Club of Assabet Valley on July 20. Ring toss, bocci, badminton, kite flying, and more kept everyone moving despite the 90 degree heat. We love the opportunity to "play" with these kids and will do it again in August. Sharon Spaulding and Dave Robertson have some unique activities planned. Look at this orderly line-up as the boys and girls return to the club house!
Amy                                        Rebecca
 
On July 22 the Rotary Club of Concord inducted Amy Capofreddi and Rebecca Lynch as members of the Club and of Rotary International. We are excited about their intent to share their skills as we embark on humanitarian projects.
 
Amy is Director of Development at Newbury Court, and was Executive Director of Gaining Ground following a career in development and marketing at Two Ten Footwear, Nashoba Brooks School, Babson Capital Management and Fidelity Management Trust Company. She is interested in Rotary’s emphasis on “Hunger and Poverty” and “Scholarships and Education.”
 
Rebecca is Director of Development at the Okoa Project, a non-profit that provides emergency transportation to healthcare in geographically neglected areas, notably in Ghana. Among her previous positions she served as Executive Director of the Boys and Girls Club of Assabet Valley and a writer for the Kabbalah Centre and Komodo Health. She is interested in Rotary’s emphasis on “Water, Health and Sanitation” and “Scholarships and Education.”
Rotarian Mario Matos held us in awe as he recounted his journey to become the founder and president of  “A Hand Up Group Inc.”  Starting as a participant in Global mission trips, his dedication to helping others grew to a point where he himself now organizes groups to build and repair housing, principally in the Dominican Republic. Mario described the plight of Haitian refugees working the Dominican’s sugar fields as akin to slavery. A expert tradesman, Mario teaches skills that will free them to work in industry. The Group also addresses food insecurity so prevalent in the area. A Hand Up Group will accept corded power tools and cash donations to support its work. Mario will be leading a trip in the foreseeable future and invited interested volunteers to get in touch with him. 
Jeanne Armocida received an enthusiastic welcome as she joined the Rotary Club of Concord on June 3, 2021. We are excited to tap into Jeanne's  rich experience in marketing, sales and communications for prestigious non-profit organizations including years in Kenya with USAID and Ireland with EuroCom.  She is a long-time foster parent, having hosted over 60 children. Jeanne is now a real estate professional with Coldwell Banker. And a proud Rotarian.
