Join Representative Gouveia, the Concord Public Ceremonies Committee, and community members for a celebration of Diana “Di” Clymer, recipient of the 2019 Concord Honored Citizen award. There will be a brief ceremony and reception.
About Di: A proud Concord resident for over 50 years, Di has “worked tirelessly and with quiet enthusiasm” to support the efforts of various town organizations. She has proved to be an active volunteer and contributor in many capacities, including the Concord Free Public Library, League of Women Voters, Concord Historic Districts Commission, Concord Art Association, and the Concord Cultural Council. As an active member of First Parish, her role on the church’s Social Responsibility Committee in the 1960’s began her mission to Concord Prison Outreach, and as an initiator of Communities of Restorative Justice, which has spread from a one-town program to a 24-town organization. Of the many nomination letters and messages of support received, a common theme that was evident includes her high integrity, commitment, and concern for the town and its citizens. As one nomination letter states, “Everything Di touches turns to gold. And she has touched and helped so many people and organizations during her long tenure as a Concord resident.” Another nominator wrote “thanks to Di’s enthusiasm, commitment, energy, and charm, Communities for Restorative Justice has become a leader in the restorative justice movement. More broadly, she has made our town a much better place to live for all of us.”
