Members of LWVGH attended the Naturalization ceremony at Lowell Memorial Auditorium in Lowell, MA to help welcome 902 new American citizens! Although this was our 8th participation at one of these ceremonies, it was still very moving and, like before, our job was to make sure that all of the new citizens were given registration applications in order to enable them to vote in the coming elections.
We would like to give special thanks to Kay Herlihy, Roz McKeon, Carole Pelchat, Eva Rajczyk, Jean Sanders, and Peggy Toomey for participating in this very momentous event.
As at each event, before the actual ceremony began, Supervisory Immigration Officer Joseph Forte explained what to expect when the judge arrives on stage. LWVGH member Eva Rajczyk delivered the League’s welcome address and explained the process for filling out the voter registration forms.
We would like to congratulate all 902 people who became citizens on August 16 and welcome them to our growing family!
We would also like to share pictures of our newest citizens at the Naturalization Ceremony page.
