A Note of Hope — Concord
On May 4, 2014, friends, family and supporters gathered at the Concord West Seniors Club in Concord, Ont. to celebrate the group’s first non-fiction anthology, A Note of Hope. Funded in part by the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Seniors program and published by Dolce Book Publishing Inc., the 300-page collection of stories takes readers through beautifully illustrated tales of grandmothers and grandfathers persevering through uncertainty, hardships and the fears of encroaching war before calling Canada home. Concord West members Julie Seemann and Teresa Panezutti were on hand at the launch to introduce the book, which has a mandate to inspire today’s youth with lessons of hard work, determination and hope for a bright future. Concord West works to integrate and build networks among seniors and youth, with a belief that connecting ages will lead to a vibrant community.
