It was the first real snow of the year, but a mix of rain turned it into a slushy mess.
Yesterday's snowfall was the first real winter weather we've had so far in this unseasonably — but welcomed — clear January. A mixture of sleet made morning commutes slow going, and having turned to rain in the afternoon, the roads and sidewalks were a wet and slushy mess by the time commuters returned home.

Andrew Trudeau shared his experiences with the Rotary Club of Concord.
"There's not an inch of Haiti that looks like the world I live in." That one line from CCS senior Andrew Trudeau's presentation on his July trip to Haiti before the Rotary Club of Concord yesterday afternoon, summed up the impact the trip had on the young man. This trip was no vacation. Trudeau, along with Rotarian Paul D'Oliveira who organized the project, went to the island nation to deliver and install computer equipment for children in three different orphanages and schools around Haiti.
