|CONGRATULATIONS TO LINDA MCCONCHIE!|
for winning the EMACT DASH award for Best Prop Coordination in a play for Breaking Legs.
Although there were many other nominations both technical and
artistic, Linda, who is very active behind the scenes and who has most
recently served on the board with distinction, came home with another
recognition by her peers for best work. We salute her for her continued
hard work and commitment.
WALDO FIELDING IS 90!
you can believe it, our own Waldo Fielding celebrated his 90th
birthday, which falls on July 25. One celebration was at the Woods Hole
Country Club, to mark what Waldo calls "My 90 damn years." The big
family and friends event was held on Waldo's Cape Cod patio. Said
Waldo, "There were about 80 or so people, and I did know a number
of them." Still performing, Waldo has been a member of the Concord
Traveling Players, and will be acting in Philadelphia Story for Winchester Players.
