THE MARGUERITE PURCELL
MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP FUND
This Scholarship was established by the family and friends of Marguerite (Peg) Purcell to honor the memory of a dedicated and loving wife, mother, and community volunteer. An advocate of community service, Mrs. Purcell was actively involved in church and town affairs. Among her many contributions to the Town of Concord was the establishment of “Picnic in the Park” which has become a very popular and well-attended annual July 4 community celebration. In recognition of her years of service to the Town, Mrs. Purcell was named the Concord's Honored Citizen of 1989.
