February e-Grapevine
Wanted: Concord History!
Archival Pictures
Attention all Concord Township residents - Our community bicentennial is a few years away (2022) and plans are now underway to publish a community history book. Since early 2004 township volunteers have begun the monumental task of preserving the photographs, artifacts, and images of Concord’s past. Did you know Concord Township had a post office branch on Ravenna Road near Town Hall circa 1834-1901? Do you have any photos, old cancelled letters or information to share? Concord had many early industries and 20th c. farms. We need pictures or artifacts of Pease Mill, Chair Factory Falls, Ridgewood Farm and other community businesses across the decades. Search and locate your old family albums and photo collections for old pictures of Concord Township and its early histories.
 
It is incumbent upon all community residents to share in this mission. We are seeking old school photos, former famous homes, Concord business photos across the decades, farming images and long time resident images.   If you are in possession of a unique or old township photo-donate it or send a copy of it to the township historical collection annex at the Concord Community Center. Better yet -The week of March 4-8 is designated as Concord Township History Collections Week . Stop by the Community Center during normal business hours to drop off your donations or to have it scanned into our collections archives. It will make all the difference!

Are you a longtime Concord resident? We want to hear your story! What was it like growing up in Concord? What did your ancestors do for a living? Tell us about your life in Concord! We will record your story and potentially include it in a Bicentennial video about Concord Township. Call 639-4650 for more information.

February is American Heart Month. 

According to the American Heart Association, 2,300 Americans die of cardiovascular disease each day, an average of 1 death every 38 seconds. 

In 2018, we were dispatched 133 times for complaints of chest pain. Of these, 7 were STEMI’s, a very serious type of heart attack where a major artery to the heart is completely blocked. STEMI can be treated with “clot-busting” drugs or cardiac catheterization, however time is of the essence with both of these interventions.
Learn the warning signs of heart attack:

  • Chest discomfort
  • Lightheadedness, nausea or vomiting
  • Jaw, neck or back pain
  • Discomfort or pain in arm or shoulder
  • Shortness of breath

Calling 9-1-1 is the FASTEST way to notify us that you need our help.
