The Rotary Club of Concord sent 17 guests to the District Holiday Party, a lively cocktail reception held at the Colonial Inn on Sunday Dec. 10.  The Inn looked festive, with the snow reflecting outdoor holiday lights and sparkling centerpieces and linen-covered chairs setting the mood indoors. Rev. John Lombard gave a moving invocation, President Leigh Ann Crimmings welcomed the crowd of over 100 with a brief overview of our club, and Sharon Spaulding brought Wendy Rocco from Operation American Soldier to talk about their mission to send packages to servicemen. The presentation of special awards and introduction of distinguished guests highlighted Rotarians deep commitment to service above self. Congratulations to District Governor Karin Gaffney for sponsoring such an elegant, inspiring evening.
