On Sunday, November 12, after several beautiful days surrounded by family, Richard Lowe Hale’s gentle, giving spirit passed on.
Dick Hale was a Rotarian Extraordinaire, with 60 years of perfect attendance with the Rotary of Concord and friend to Rotary Club Lexington and Advisor to Rotary club of Bedford. Dick was a director of the club since 1985 and he oversaw many fundraisers including the POPS concert for many years. He was a major volunteer to many large service projects such as Monument Square, Emerson Hospital helipad, War Memorial, CCHS Skatepark, Thoreau School Riverwalk and USS Concord Bell. For the Emerson Hospital helipad Dick helped the  club raised $180,000 and was on site every day to maintain progress for 2 years. Dick was one of the 5 founders of the Concord Rotary Charitable Endowment and he was a natural at
bringing in new members with about 50 new members credited to his perseverance.
Dick was a winner in life and in Rotary- We will remember Dick, he taught us well. We will take it from here but we will never be the same without him.
Dick loved this passage, especially poignant to us now.
“If ever there is a tomorrow when we are not together… there is something you must always remember.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” – AA Milne
