Lowell DPW Rescues Old Glory

by @ 9:34 am. Filed under Current Events, Local Govt

Thanks to the two gentlemen from the City of Lowell’s Department of Public Works who arrived at the Superior Courthouse this morning with their “cherry picker” truck and saved the American flag from possible disaster. Sited on the front lawn of the courthouse just to the left of the main entrance are two large flag poles that were erected by the Greater Lowell Bar Association and donated to the Commonwealth several years ago. Time and weather took their toll on the pole that carried the American flag, and the lower of the flag’s two fasteners had given way, leaving the nation’s colors literally hanging by a thread. Not only did the city workers rescue the flag, they did a quick rehab of the ropes and pulleys and the flag is back flying in the dignified manner that it demands.
