It's already been a busy (and HOT) summer season at Concordia, with the Golf Outing, Legacy Society Luncheon, Good Samaritan Hospice children's bereavement camps and hundreds of resident-centered activities and events. What can we say? We would rather be busy than bored. :)
And we're not letting this heat slow us down now. Below is information on some of our remaining events for the rest of the summer which doesn't end until September 22 (as far away as that seems). For more information on any of the events, call Concordia Public Relations at 724.352.1571, ext. 8266 or e-mail us here. Hopefully we'll see you in person a few times before autumn!
