It’s another cold and blustery weekend in Lowell. Fortunately, we aren’t expected to get any heavy snow over the next two days. Since you won’t have to shovel tomorrow, you’ll need to find something else to do with your time.
Here are two ideas for your Saturday afternoon.
Celebrate with Chocolate and Champagne
Yes, you read that right. There will be chocolate and champagne waiting for you at Flat River Gallery and Framing on Saturday afternoon. While enjoying your treat, you can meet featured artist Roy Brown and listen to live music from Roger MacNaughton.
If you’ve never been in Flat River Gallery and Framing, you really should stop by sometime. Not only does art of all styles cover the walls, but you’ll find jewelry, pottery, textiles and more. While everything is for sale, it can be a fun place to stop by and browse even if you’re not in the market.
What: 2nd Annual Chocolate and Champagne Event
Where: Flat River Gallery and Framing, 219 W. Main St.
When: Saturday, February 11, 2017 from 1-3pm
Watch Lowell Firefighters in Action
If chocolate and champagne aren’t your thing, don’t worry. There’s something for you this weekend too. The Lowell Area Fire Department is conducting an ice rescue training with several other area departments. It doesn’t sound like they need any volunteers to jump in the water for rescuing, but the public is invited to watch from the sidelines on the public beach.
What: Ice Rescue Technician Level I Training
Where: Stoney Lakeside Park, 1200 Bowes St.
When: Saturday, February 11, 2017 1t 1:30pm
Remember that while the fire department is happy to have citizens observe, this is a training session for rescue personnel. Observers should remain on the public beach and out of the way of workers.
Other Happenings in Lowell:
- LowellArts will be holding auditions for Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding at 10am on Saturday (Feb. 11) and 7pm on Monday (Feb 13).
- The FROM Foodmobile will be at the fairgrounds on Saturday morning (Feb 11). Distribution starts at 10am and continues until the food runs out. The Senior Food Commodities program also runs on Saturday. The Foodmobile is open to anyone in the Lowell school district, but pre-registration is required for the senior program.
