IT's going to get hot this weekend!
The Concord Senior Center will open as a cooling center this long Labor Day weekend, September 3-5, from 12 p.m.-7 p.m., when temperatures are projected by the National Weather Service to be over 100 degrees. Additionally, the Center is open during regular business hours, Monday-Friday, from 9:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m. and welcomes everyone to cool off in the lobby during these times. Visitors are encouraged to bring something quiet to do, like a book to read or have earphones for their electronic devices...and don't forget your snacks and drinks!
Other locations to cool off include shopping malls, libraries, theaters, and restaurants. Everyone is encouraged to stay indoors and drink plenty of water even if they do not feel thirsty to stay hydrated.
