A MESSAGE FROM THE CONCORD PLAYERS BOARD OF DIRECTORS
Wowee! What a fun-filled meeting in February! Lots of discussion, many decisions, lots of excitement! The board has picked a slate for next season’s plays! Cinderella has been cast! The capital campaign for renovations has begun!
we’ll be losing some of our board members, Nominating Committee
members Lillian Anderson, Dorothy
Schecter, and Sheryl Blair were present
to define the qualities they look for in selecting a slate of officers.
The nominees to the Executive Committee for a one year term are: David
Gould, President; Ellie Hutchins, Vice-President; Bill
Myron Feld, Treasurer; and Marion
Pohl, Secretary. Nominated to be new
members of the Board of Directors are: - Derek
Till, for one year, and Laura
Sweet and Linda McConchie, for two years.
Spitfire Grill was a great success. Kudos to everyone who did their tasks so very well. From the PR at the start to the parties at the end, everyone involved in the show’s production was at the top of their game. Our sincerest thanks!
The renovation of 51 Walden Street is expected to begin early this summer. This means that EVERYTHING has to be moved out of the stage and the green room. Do you have any extra storage space we can use for the duration? Not to mention, schlepping all this stuff is going to require all the muscle we can muster. Won’t you volunteer to help us make the move? Please e-mail Marion Pohl at CAFAS@aol.com, or give her a call at (978) 369-7559 to volunteer.
And now - the piece of news you’ve been panting for – our play slate for next season!
