SPECIAL NOTE: Tonight’s Parker Lecture featuring Ted Reinstein has been POSTPONED to a later date.

We just received word that tonight’s Parker Lecture featuring Ted Reinstein’s will be postponed to a later date. Mr. Reinstein will be reporting tonight as part of a full hour tribute show to the recently departed Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and will therefore be unable to make it to Lowell.  We will be rescheduling this lecture as soon as we can. Stay tuned for more information. In the meantime, our thoughts are with Mayor Menino’s family.

Fun Packed Halloween Week begins in Lowell

 Happy Friday everyone! We thought we’d share a fun video of a Thriller Flash Mob in front of St. Ann’s Church as part of the 2011 Monster Bash. As Halloween nears and autumn deepens, there are lots of great ways to get in the spirit of the season. Our friends over at COOL have compiled a list of Halloween Fun – including  of course Monster Bash & Downtown Stroll, and the Scarecrow Festival both happening tomorrow. And don’t forget we’re having our annual UN-Scary Halloween celebration for the kids at the library next Tuesday at 10:30am. Lots of reasons to dress up and eat candy. What could be better to get you primed up for Trick or Treating in Lowell (6pm-8pm on Friday, Oct. 31.)? Don’t forget to check out the LPD Halloween Hours and Safety Tips before you head out on the big night. Have Fun, Be Safe!

The magic happened in 1992 when they defeated the Atlanta Braves. Gas was $1.05, the most popular toy was the Super Soaker and Tom Hanks was telling us “There’s no crying in baseball.”
