Update: Nursing Name Change; Summer Concerts Begin Tonight [VIDEO]
The sounds of steel at Concord Public Library and a change in name for a nursing facility.
The Walden Rehabilitation & Nursing Center facility is now known as the Kindred Nursing and Rehabilitation Center - Walden. The new name is a result of a June 1 acquisition by the RehabCare Group, a publicly-traded firm based in Louisville, Kentucky.
John and Polly Wild are moving from their Lang Street home this summer. They now have 30 years’ of accumulation they don’t plan to take to their new destination - which is also in Concord. Stop by their yard sale this Saturday from 9 to 3 at 45 Lang St. John is former military man, so it’s guaranteed that items will be in tiptop shape.
Happy Wednesday, y’all!
Hope everyone had a great, calorie-laden Fourth of July weekend. I sure did.
The Sound of Steel Drums
While on the subject of food today, I suggest you gather the makings of an island-style picnic. Then grab your family and friends and go find a spot on the lawn of the main library. You’ll be in for a real tropical treat. The sounds of steel drums and calypso, jazz and soul music will penetrate the air, as the Summer Concert on the Lawn series kicks off.
The concert begins at 7 p.m., when PanNeubean Steel, a New England-based ensemble of musicians, takes the stage. You should arrive early, however, to ensure a good spot to spread your blanket and lay out your entree of shrimp and lime. PanNeubean Steel plays a mix of musical genres from classical to reggae, and showcases the music of the steel pan drums ringing out the Caribbean music of reggae, soca and calypso.
There is no charge to attend and the entertainment is suitable for all ages. In case of rain, the concert will be relocated to the Emerson Umbrella Theater at 40 Stow St, Concord. Don’t worry, though. The forecast is for clear skies and a fun-filled evening. The Summer Concert on the Lawn series is sponsored by the Friends of the Concord Free Public Library
