Remembering Peter Stamas, Nov. 15

Remembering Peter Stamas, Thursday, Nov. 15, 7 pm, Parker Gallery/Whistler House

Join us in paying tribute to one of the great humanitarians of modern Lowell, a man who made enduring contributions to education, his church, Lowell’s heritage, and the quality of life of our community.

This is a Parker Lectures event, cosponsored by the Lowell Heritage Partnership, Hellenic Culture and Heritage Society, and Greater Lowell Community Foundation. Speakers will include William “Bill” Samaras, Marie Sweeney, Linda Sou, James Ostis, and others. The program will include a short film about the Human Services Corporation of Lowell, which Peter helped establish with Dr Patrick J. Mogan and others, and later led for many years. A panel of younger leaders in Lowell will reflect on the example Peter gave to us.

 

Elizabeth Warren rally in Lowell

The long-awaited 2012 election is less than a week away. This Friday night, join Elizabeth Warren, Niki Tsongas and Patrick Murphy for a pre-election rally at Arthur Ramalho’s West End Gym at 900 Lawrence Street in Lowell. Made famous around the world by the film The Fighter (it was already famous locally), getting a chance to see the inside of the West End Gym is itself worth the price of admission (which is free anyway); getting to hear from Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren is a bonus. Everyone is invited. Doors open at 5:30 p.m.
