Dear Members of the Harvard Community,

I am excited to assume the role of Harvard Club in Concord (HCC) President and take the reins from Robin Tapper. Robin has served as president for the past 7 years and the HCC blossomed under her leadership. I would like to thank her for her service and dedication as well as for her support through our transition. A graduate of the College and the T.H. Chan School of Public Health, I look forward to meeting many of you through upcoming activities and to strengthening our HCC community ties. I hope that you and your family are doing well as we emerge from another challenging year.

Our HCC Board is planning events and we welcome your ideas! If you would like to be involved with organizing some of our activities, or are able to help with our website, please contact us. This year we are encouraging people to purchase/renew their memberships on-line. If you prefer to pay by check, please click here. Thank you in advance. Once on the payment page, if you scroll down you will also be able to donate to our Student Scholarship/Fellowship programs if you would like. Any contributions of course are greatly appreciated.

While we are eager to meet in-person, we will continue to offer virtual events. During the pandemic, our club has been collaborating with other local Harvard clubs in presenting virtual events. We are pleased to invite you to a Zoom event on June 9th at 7pm sponsored by our own HCC: 
Professor Daniel Nocera will speak about the Bionic Leaf.

If you'd like to sign up, you can click here to receive the zoom link.

We plan to make apple picking in September an annual tradition and will look for other fun and engaging outdoor activities to enjoy over the summer. A book group is in the works and details will be coming soon.

I am pleased to announce that we have awarded the HCC Summer Fellowship to a member of the Class of 2023. The recipient is a Joint History and Government Concentrator and will use the award to help fund a study of the social safety net.

On behalf of the Board, I hope you will join us for a virtual or in person event this year; we look forward to seeing you!

Best wishes,
Jane Barrow
President, Harvard Club In Concord
