Come and celebrate with 2020 Norwich Citizen of the Year, Linda Cook, and enjoy a concert on the Green.

Sponsored by the Norwich Women's Club

Hello Norwich,

I thought it would be nice to share this announcement from the Norwich Women’s Club with the community. Linda Cook was selected as the 2020 Citizen of the Year, however due to the pandemic, was never able to receive her award. Come to the green on Sunday June 13th, to celebrate with Linda and to enjoy the first of 3 concerts planned for the summer.

Here is the official announcement which recently appeared on the List Serv

Hello all!  

After a long pandemic hiatus the Women's Club concerts on Norwich Green resume on Sunday, June 13th, with the Maroon 15 Jazz Combo at 6pm.  We'll also take this occasion to celebrate our 2020 Citizen of the Year, Linda Cook.

Linda is a force behind so many things in Norwich - a lifelong Norwich resident, EMT, Fire Captain, Selectboard Member (and chair!), Fire Warden, Lister, and a volunteer for so many Norwich organizations and events.  She's been instrumental in coordinating care for the elderly and home-bound in Norwich; she works the Nearly New Sale and Rummage Sale each year; she's active with the Grange (and helps organize its Halloween haunted house).  You would be hard put to find a committee or group that hasn't benefited from Linda's involvement over the years!  We missed out on our opportunity to honor her in 2020, so please join us on Sunday, June 13th to honor all her contributions to Norwich.  The concert starts at 6, and the Citizen of the Year ceremony will take place around 6:45.  

About Maroon 15: The Maroon 15 Jazz Combo is under the direction of Norwich resident Ian Gollub, and features outstanding young jazz musicians from Norwich and Hanover.  Playing a mix of jazz standards, calypso, bossa nova and other jazz styles, they will welcome the Norwich Women’s Club Summer Concert Series back to Norwich! 

Please bring chairs or a blanket, mind your distance from other family groups, and wear a mask if you're unvaccinated.  Adhere to all state and local guidance regarding masks and distancing.

Other upcoming summer concerts are:

July 11 - Dana & Susan Robinson - 6:00pm
Sept 5 - Brian Cook - 6:00pm

All the best,

Lily Trajman

NWC President
