Kirk Street Clock Rededication

The famous Kirk Street Clock that is set outside of Lowell High School was rededicated today.  The fully refurbished clock will have its time reset after power outages and time changes by a satellite uplink.  The chimes on the clock have been set to sound louder between the hours of 3 pm and 9 pm (when classes are over but before neighbors head to bed.  The click was a gift of the Lowell High classes of 1937, ’38 and ’39 and was installed in June 1937.  The Clock Refurbishment Committee continues to raise funds to be used for maintenance and upkeep of the clock.  To participate, send your donation to GLCF/LSH Clock Fund; care of Greater Lowell Community Foundation; 100 Merrimack St, Lowell, MA 01852.

    Thanks for the pictures and for the update, Dick. My father, James F. Reynolds, Jr., was LHS Class of 1939. Same class as Jack Kerouac. I plan on contributing to the maintenance fund. It will be great if this refurbishment lasted until the 37-38-39 class centennials.
