Often on her own time, Eleanor Baker our Activities Director scouts out exciting ideas to bring back to Nichols Village. Here she is (on left), the leader of the pack checking out one of the Concord Museum’s educational walks. This photo is currently displayed on the Concord Museum's website to promote their Concord Festival of Authors. If interested, the Concord Museum is having an educational walk in October 2021.
