LOWELL -- Gov. Deval Patrick will give the keynote speech at an entrepreneurship event in Lowell Tuesday, along with making stops in Pepperell and Methuen.
At 11 a.m., Patrick is scheduled to attend the groundbreaking of a new Masy Systems building in Pepperell's Lomar Park. Owners John and Laurie Masiello bought the 27 Lomar Park Drive building, across the street from their headquarters, to house their expanding company's calibration department.
Then, the governor will head to the UMass Lowell Inn and Conference Center, where he is a keynote speaker at the Merrimack Valley Sandbox's Sandbox Summit 2014.
Co-sponsored by the commonwealth of Massachusetts, the two-day schedule features pitch workshops and panel discussions and brings together start-ups, investors, government officials and accelerator programs.
Patrick's final stop in the Merrimack Valley is in Methuen, where he'll break ground on an improvement project at the Route 110/Interstate 93 interchange. The rotary overhaul is intended to ease traffic congestion and enhance safety.
