Dominican Flag Raising

imageMore than 100 people, including a delegation of 30 visiting from the Dominican Republic, as well as contingents from Spain and Holland, gathered at City Hall Friday morning to raise the Dominican flag.

The event was organized by Pastor Rafael Najem of the Community Christian Fellowship, who has created a relationship with officials in several Dominican cities to bolster his parish’s efforts to aid the poor of that island nation. He also initiated city sister relationships between Lowell and Santo Domingo East, Nagua, and San Pedro de Macoris in the Dominican Republic.
