On April 22, 2017, DIY Lowell and other community partners hosted Lowell’s Points of Light Lantern Celebration at Ecumenical Plaza. Ecumenical Plaza was one of the key activation sites identified by Lowell Heritage Partnership during the creation of the Waterways Vitality Project Action Plan. The evening was a great success with approximately one thousand people taking part in the festivities. Even Mayor Edward Kennedy helped participate in the launch crew. DIY Lowell is a two-time LCC grant recipient for their community-driven project series.
