Tsongas to Host Her Own Farewell Event
LOWELL -- As her farewell tour winds down, U.S. Rep. Niki Tsongas will host an event of her own to commemorate more than a decade in office.
Tsongas will welcome supporters to a brunch at the Tsongas Center at UMass Lowell -- the hockey arena in Lowell named for her late husband, Paul -- at 11 a.m. on Dec. 9. The event will “celebrate all that we’ve accomplished together,” Tsongas herself wrote in a digital invitation.
The congresswoman, who will retire at the end of her term, has attended dozens of ceremonies, appreciations and celebrations in recent months. But this will be the first event of such scale that her own office has organized.
Tsongas will host another event later in the week in Washington for those who cannot make it to Lowell. The second celebration is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on Dec. 11 at the Legal Sea Bar in Washington’s Union Station.
