Drew Weber to receive Community Spirit Award

Owner to be honored by Kiwanis Club of Greater Lowell
March 10, 2015

The Kiwanis Club of Greater Lowell would like to announce the 2015 recipient of the Thomas G Kelakos Community Spirit Award. Tom was a man who will always be remembered for his wisdom, his compassion, and his quiet generosity. He was a member of the Kiwanis Club of Greater Lowell for almost 50 years, and had a perfect attendance record, meeting weekly. He owned and operated the LOMEDCO Company here in Lowell for many years, and made it a priority to give back to his community. He was a true gentleman and always had a warm smile and a word of encouragement for you, whenever you saw him. So often he helped out at many charities throughout the years with Kiwanis being one of his favorites. And yet he did so quietly. A lot of what Tom did was done anonymously because that was his way. It is because of Tom and his ways that the Kiwanis Club introduced the Thomas G. Kelakos Community Spirit Award, in his honor, after he passed away. One of our most revered members; he is fondly remembered and dearly missed by our membership.


This year, Drew Weber will receive the 2015 Thomas G. Kelakos Community Spirit Award at the annual dinner to be held Friday, April 10 at Lenzi's in Dracut. Tickets are on-sale now for the event for a donation of $75 each or tables of 10 for $750. Tickets can be purchased at or by calling Bob Howard at (978) 459-4836.
