First Annual Concord Historical Society Capital Campaign Dinner-Auction Fundraiser ~

Great strides were made on Saturday, October 17, 2015, towards raising the next slug of money needed to finish transforming Concord’s former Masonic Temple into the Concord Museum and Event Center (CMEC) — and we had a fun, grand, memorable and exciting time doing so.

A sincere “Thank You” to all the individuals and businesses who/which donated items for auction and prizes, the many who volunteered of their time to make the evening possible and — above all — the 161 people who attended. There even were some who, when unable to attend, still made generous campaign donations.

On-going support is required, not only for the CMEC work but also the general operations of the Galindo Home and Gardens and the Resource Center, where artifacts are stored and studied. It is easy to donate online.
