LOWELL, Mass. (AP)

An intense fire ravaged a three-story apartment building before dawn Thursday, killing four adults and three children, forcing tenants to jump or hand their children to safety, and leading to dramatic rescues from upper floors. The victims in this former mill city about 25 miles northwest of Boston were all found in units on the top floor of the building, which had a liquor store on the ground floor and apartments on the upper floors, fire officials said. To read more about this story, please click here


 

Northwest Atlantic Marine Alliance's Rock the Boat Fundraiser

Rock the Boat is a tasting and music event that will highlight local-dayboat seafood tastings from area restauraunts, live music, chef demos, a fisheries-focused art exhibit, raffle and an auction! The evening will be joined by folk rock singer-songwriter Chelsea Barry and the Bob Marley tribute reggae band, Hope Road.

Ticket price will also include one free drink. Attendees will have a chance to taste the bounty of the ocean, learn about sustainable fisheries, dance to the music and bid on an awesome lineup of auction prizes while raising funds for a great organization.
NAMA works with coastal communities that depend on fishing to protect our marine environment, strengthen local leadership, and give voice to independent, community based fishermen. NAMA advocates for policies that advance social, economic, and environmental justice throughout the entire seafood value chain. 

Tickets may be purchased online at namarocktheboat.eventbrite.com.  Learn more about NAMA at www.namanet.org or call 978-281-6934.

100% of ALL Proceeds to American Diabetes Association



The Gerard J. Jacobs Hockey Jamboree was established as a day for friends and family to come together and remember Gerard.  The "pond style" Jamboree is a simple format that promotes laughter and friendship, two of the many things that were important to Gerard.

Proceeds from the Jamboree have been used to support the Gerard J. Jacobs Memorial Scholarship that was established in memory of Gerard.  Scholarships are awarded to local students that are attending college or pursuing a trade.  We have also been able to purchase and donate a new, state of the art scoreboard/time clock for the Hallenborg Rink at Billerica High, benefiting players from all over the region.

 

We hope you can join us on Saturday, April 25th for a day of hockey, raffles, food and fun.
