Points of Light From Home!

April 2, 2021

From the Points of Light Facebook page and website:

We are delighted to announce Points of Light: Lanterns of Hope for 2021! While we can’t be together yet, we can remember and celebrate hope.
Points of Light will celebrate 2021 by displaying the community’s lanterns in select locations downtown and the Acre. These displays will be viewable in storefront windows day and night for a month starting the week of May 10.

In addition, we’ll kick off the “Lanterns of Hope” exhibition with a Facebook livestream including recorded multifaith blessings and
prayers. More information to follow.

Although we’re sad we can’t physically be together this spring, we still want to remind each other of the strong ties we share in our diverse community. Therefore, we’re introducing “Points of Light from Home”

Until May 8, until we run out of supplies, you can email hello@pointsoflightlowell.com to request a lantern kit to be dropped off at any address in Lowell. Lantern kits are in packs of two and are quarantined at least 3 days before delivery. You can also make a soda bottle lantern with everyday supplies (tutorial video on this page).

In addition, we’re partnering with Coalition for a Better Acre, Arts League of Lowell, and others to include more than 100 lanterns in packages that are dropped off to or picked up by families and individuals.

Email a photo of a decorated or memorialized lantern to hello@pointsoflightlowell.com and we’ll feature it in a video slideshow with lanterns across the community. Watch the 2020 Points of Light From Home here.
