‘Into the Wild’ Exhibit Runs August 7-September 9
At a virtual town hall yesterday, U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), Bob Casey (D-PA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI), along with health care experts and patient advocates, joined Protect Our Care and Health Care Voter ahead of the third anniversary of Senator John McCain’s historic thumbs-down vote to stave off repeal of the Affordable Care Act. With President Trump in court trying to do what Republicans failed to do legislatively three years ago – terminate the Affordable Care Act – and the coronavirus crisis continuing to rage across the country, the stakes have never been higher to protect the ACA and remember the fateful vote that saved it from repeal in 2017.
Concord, NH —Protect Our Care NH did a Facebook Live today highlighting the irony of how one week ago, when Donald Trump cancelled his New Hampshire rally over fears of a tropical storm, dozens of Granite Staters took to social media to share images of the warm and sunny weather.
Today, Protect Our Care NH was joined by Congressman Chris Pappas, as well as representatives from Laconia Housing, Kent Street Coalition and the New Hampshire Alliance for Healthy Ageing on a Zoom roundtable to discuss how COVID-19 pandemic is hurting New Hampshire’s seniors. Participants looked at how the pandemic is impacting New Hampshire’s elder community, and emphasized the higher levels of support New Hampshire’s seniors and caretakers need through closing New Hampshire’s digital divide of broadband access, increasing federal and state cooperation with local organizations in the face of a once-in-a-lifetime public health crisis, and protecting and expanding the Affordable Care Act.
Capitol Center for the Arts (CCA), in collaboration with the Concord Community Music School and the City of Concord, presents “Music in the Park,” a series of six mini-concerts to take place Saturday evenings, July 18 through August 22, on the Music School’s outdoor stage, which overlooks Fletcher-Murphy Park in downtown Concord.
One of the most exciting outcomes from our season of remote learning has been hosting seven virtual recitals – featuring some 200 students overall! It’s been a wonderful way to applaud our students’ musical achievements, experiment with performance technologies, and maintain our musical community even though we can’t be together.
The N.H. Preservation Alliance invites owners and enthusiasts of old homes or barns as well as leaders of community preservation projects to participate in their new virtual roundtable gatherings. The summer schedule can be found at www.nhpreservation.org.
