"LOWELL — Gordon Halm has told the story of his family’s pet chickens, Parsley and Peep, countless times. When reflecting on the beginnings of the African Community Center of Lowell, it’s a story he has to tell.
On Nov. 2, the ACCL celebrated its third anniversary during a spirited ceremony at Eliot Presbyterian Church in the city’s Back Central neighborhood. During the event, Halm’s story was officially unveiled to the public in the the form of a children’s book, titled “Parsley’s Big Adventure.
”“It’s very inspirational, very cross-cultural and very powerful,” said Halm, the executive director and founder of the ACCL.From the moment people entered the church for the anniversary event, the space was alive with music, including a thriving performance by the African Choir of the Eliot Church. Attendees were also treated to a buffet of African cuisine."
