One Response to Textile Bridge memorial ceremony on Sunday
It was a touching ceremony on Sunday highlighted by the remarks and readings of UML’s Todd Tietchen, Ph.D. and esteemed Lowell Veteran’s Council Commander Robert Page; culminating in the dropping of flowers from the bridge into the Merrimack River. (See the Sun article and photos at http://www.lowellsun.com/ci_19331747 ).
ComeToLowell.com is producing a documentary about the bridge for release in early January, including a presentation on the new series “The Lowell Connection” on LTC.
