From Nanyce Tuttle’s 2004 Lowell Sun interview with “Local Hero” Lura Smith:
Each year, the biggest and best day in Lura Smith’s busy life is Martin Luther King Day.
It’s the day that Smith, the elegant, effervescent assistant to Middlesex Community College President Carole Cowan, plans for all year long – a time for her and her family to host an ever-growing group of family and friends at a joyous, inspirational, heartwarming celebration of the life of the late, great civil rights leader, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Let me share this invitation with our readers:
