Happy City Indeed

Thank you to everyone who participated in this years Lowell Reads Happy City program. Whether you read the book, participated in the discussion, or took in the documentary Urbanized, or the Lowell Walks panel discussion, or the jazz concert, or danced laughed and smiled at our block party—we were truly happy to see so many people engaged in a conversation about community. We saw lots of smiles, and can’t help but think Lowell was just a shade happier in September 2016 because of Lowell Reads.

We know there’s more to come in terms of happiness for Lowell. But for now, here are some pictures from our Happy City Block party:

Polling Location Changed from Library to High School – Happy Voting

IMG_5948

If you live in Ward 2 – Precinct 1 and were planning to vote tomorrow in the State primaries, before our Lowell Reads Happy City Discussion leave yourself a little extra time because you will be voting at Lowell High School Murphy Cafeteria and not the Pollard Memorial Library. This will be the case for the Nov. 8 general election as well.  The Election Commission changed the venue to accommodate what is anticipated to be a large crowd. Happy Voting!
