Whaleboat Project reaches $100,000 goal


This summer, Lowell’s will be offering a three-day Midshipman Workshop for 14- to 16-year-olds and a summer youth rowing workshop for 10- to 14-year-olds. Upon completion of the whaleboat project, the shop will offer programs focusing on marine sciences and the maritime history of the lower Merrimack River Valley region.

In addition to the Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank Charitable Foundation and the Institution for Savings Charitable Foundation, other local organizations that Lowell’s said were major donors included the Peter R. and Cynthia K. Kellogg Foundation, the H. Patterson Hale, Jr. Foundation and the Provident Community Foundation.
