Wheels rolling for the new center. After a decade of planning and raising funds, the dream of building a new Concord Center is coming true. “Old School 22, 1231 S. Illinois, is being demolished to make way for the center.” The new building will include a library, gymnasium, counseling offices, senior citizen lunch and meeting areas, youth program space, and kitchen, and a space for neighborhood meetings. “The community is aware and anxiously awaiting the new facility.”
