What's Happening at Rotary Club of Concord
The Rotary Club of Concord held its first online Installation Event June 25, 2020 via Zoom. 40 attendees welcomed the officers and board of directors for 2020-2021: President David Robertson, President-Elect for 2021-2022 Karl Kussin, Secretary Helen Halloran and Treasurer Peter Mahler.  Board members include Chris Alphen, Greg Costigan, Hiliary Taylor, Beth Winn, Andrea Zall, Henry Dane, Dick Hale, and Steve Kirk.
Attendees applauded Immediate Past President Jean Goldsberry’s outstanding leadership during the unprecedented challenges of the Covid pandemic. Goldsberry thanked club members for their flexibility and endurance, highlighting many accomplishments during the year: cookout for the Council on Aging, booth at Jazzfest, Bristol Lodge soup kitchen in Waltham, food packing for Rise Against Hunger, hot chocolate at the holiday parade, food delivery to Open Table, sponsorship of a new Interact Club at Concord Middle School, football luncheon with the Bedford Club, partnering with the Lexington Club to assemble and distribute face masks and shields, and more.
Noel Choquette, Karl Kussin and Hilary Taylor received the revered “Rotarian of the Year” award. Greg Costigan was awarded the Richard L. Hale Club Service Award, and the Extra Mile Award went to Dave Robertson. Richard Warren, Henry Dane and Dave Robertson were honored for their work delivering produce from Gaining Ground to Open Table. The Rotary Club of Concord presented Rotary Partnership Awards to the Lexington and Bedford Clubs.
At our June 4 meeting, Meteorologist Dr. John Keller, researcher at AIR Worldwide in Boston, presented a comprehensive non-partisan talk with slides about climate change, offering caution and hope. Keller reviewed the sweeping climate changes over the centuries. See his slide presentation by clicking on "Climate Slides" under "Club Information" to the bottom left of this Home Page.

Some years ago the Rotary Club of Concord initiated the Class Act Awards for high school students who were not necessarily the top scholars but who excelled in an extra-curricular activity. From its celebratory start as a Rotary cookout for awardees and their families the event expanded to an awards ceremony hosted by Concord Carlisle High School encompassing many activities. Unfortunately the 2020 Class Act Awards night was cancelled, like all school events.  However, the sponsors of the event wanted to be sure that the incredible individual community service efforts of CCHS students did not go unrecognized. CCHS distributed the awards, including the Rotary Club's recognition of young people for their Community Service, Integrity, Kindness, Leadership, and Civic Responsibility. Each club and sport at CCHS had an opportunity to choose their Rotary award recipients, as nominated by their group advisors or coaches. A comprehensive list of the recipients is available below under "Club Information." Please take a look at this incredible line-up of 83 Rotary honorees!
