LHNG to Remember New Year’s Eve Victims of Violence on Grand Street
Event Begins at Armory Park on Sunday, January 2 at 2:00 PM
Please join the Lower Highlands Neighborhood Group (LHNG) on Sunday, January 2 at 2:00 PM in Armory Park to place purple ribbons along Grand Street in remembrance of the victims of violence that occurred at 104 Grand Street on New Year’s Eve. (Ribbons will be provided by the LHNG)
The event will begin in Armory Park at the corner of Westford and Grand Streets at 2:00 PM, and participants will walk along Grand Street and place purple ribbons on light posts and telephone poles. Lower Highlands residents and friends are invited and encouraged to attend. The purpose of this event is to honor victims of violence and send a clear message throughout the Lower Highlands and the City of Lowell that violence will not be tolerated in our community.
LHNG is supported entirely by volunteers and works to maintain and improve the quality of life in the Lower Highlands neighborhood of Lowell. Our work focuses on achieving three primary goals: public safety, neighborhood beautification, and community building.
