Law Day at Fifty

by @ 4:18 pm. Filed under History

Congratulations to the Greater Lowell Bar Association and the local Juvenile and Superior Courts here in Lowell on an excellent Law Day ceremony held this noon in the civil session of Lowell Superior Court. Law Day was instituted in 1958 by President Eisenhower in reaction to the massive military parades held in the Soviet Union on May 1st. The message of Law Day was that while the legitimacy of the Soviet government rested on military might, the foundation of the US government was the supremacy of our laws. The program began with the presentation of the colors by the Lowell High School Air Force Junior ROTC Color Guard which was followed by the National Anthem sung by the Lowell High Spindles show choir. An eighth grade class from the neighboring Rogers School then led us all in the Pledge of Allegiance. After remarks by Congresswoman Niki Tsongas, State Senator Steve Panagiotakos and Mayor Bud Caulfield, the four finalists in the bar association essay contest then read their compositions. They were Caitlyn Connerty of Billerica High School, Christopher Heintz of Tewksbury Memorial High School, Katy Nowoswiat of Lowell High and Kelsey Wright of Notre Dame Academy. Katy Nowoswiat won the $1000 scholarship first prize by writing about how the lessons of our World War Two internment of Japanese Americans are instructive in today’s War on Terror. After a some patriotic songs by the Spindles and a rendition of Jackson Browne’s “I Am A Patriot” by Tim Bergeron, the winner of this years’ Lowell High Idol competition, the event adjourned and a luncheon was served to all in attendance.
