The Centennial Bench Project:
To celebrate Girls Inc.’s 100 years of programs, services and mentorship to Greater Lowell girls and young women, a permanent bench will be placed in our front garden honoring STRONG, SMART, BOLD women. Recognize yourself and/or another woman with these qualities.
To help further our impact in our community and look ahead to the next 100 years, the funds collected will be invested in the Girls Inc. of Greater Lowell endowment fund. A dedication ceremony will be held this fall to unveil the bench and celebrate all the women that are honored.
The deadline for submitting a name to be engraved on the bench was 8/31/2018. A celebration unveiling/ open house will be held this fall, scheduled for the late afternoon of Sunday, October 14, 2018. More details to come.
