Curious as to how the name "Harmony" came about? Ever wonder just how many water lines supply Concord? How many dump trucks does the city have?
Every class is packed with activities and information. Classes will be interactive with opportunities to ask questions and give feedback.
Students will tour City facilities, view equipment used by various departments, and get a first hand look at what it takes to run City services such as solid waste, water, police, fire, parks and recreation, and much more.
In addition, several community partners will be on board to give a behind-the-scenes look at what makes Concord such a great place to live.
