Concord's Community Space

“We value community and believe that people are happiest when supporting each other. We believe that, at any time, every person in our community has something valuable to offer, and every person has something valuable to learn. The River Guild  has a large, open space for classes, workshops, and community gatherings. We would love you to join us.”

Kate Hartwell, Owner

We are so excited to be welcoming Jennifer Sue Mallard to our team! Jenny-Sue, as we affectionately call her, will be taking on the office management roles at both the Concord Birth Center and The River Guild. She has a robust career background which includes intense training in the performing arts. You can see her on stage with the Seacoast Repertory Theatre Company as well as other production companies in Southern New Hampshire. She brings with her a gift for connection and a loving energy that is contagious. Welcome to the village, Jenny-Sue!


Adding More Love ...

We are also grateful to welcome aboard our volunteer office manager, Diane Robinson. Diane has been a supporter of the Guild for over a year and has found it in her heart to help us further our mission.
