Concordia's Summer Event Calendar is Full Again

June 7, 2016

In western PA/eastern OH, we definitely get to experience all four of the seasons – some admittedly last a little longer than we might like (cough, winter, cough…). But as the saying goes, without the sour, the sweet ain’t as sweet! Needless to say, we at Concordia are excited for the sweet summer.
