It’s been a week packed with excitement and activities in Lowell. Here’s a look back.
Kindergarten classrooms throughout the school district are making their annual trek to the Wittenbach Wege Nature Center for some outdoor learning fun.
Meanwhile, the cast of Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding has been busy getting ready for opening night. This marks the first time LowellArts has put on an interactive dinner theater. We’ve seen the rehearsals and don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Watch for our full story on the show next week.
Big Boiler Brewing got a delivery of equipment this week, bringing them one step closer to their opening day.
This week also has special meaning for both the Jewish and Christian members of the Lowell community. The Jewish observance of Passover began on Monday, and Christians commemorated this week as Holy Week. Above is the Chapel of the Repose that was set up at St. Patrick Church as part of their Holy Thursday service.
On Good Friday, members from 9 area churches joined for the annual Community Cross walk.
Long-time participants said it was one of the largest crowds they’d seen for the event. The crowd started at Lowell First United Methodist Church and proceeded through town to Oakwood Cemetery. Each church took a turn carrying the cross while the group stopped at seven stations where there were Scripture readings and prayers.
Another crowd gathered on Saturday for the grand opening of Mi Hometown Furnishings. The store was giving away a $3,000 furniture shopping spree, and it was bumper-to-bumper traffic on Main Street as people packed the downtown for the event.
And they’re off! Kids race across Creekside Park at the start of the Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Lowell Moose on Saturday.
Speaking of eggs. We found this mother keeping her eggs warm on the school grounds. See, didn’t we tell you it would be an egg-cellent weekend?
