   7:00 AM  -  10:00 PM Barrier Beautification for Lexington - An ArtWalk Project 2020  
    Contact: Cristina Burwell   781-862-6040

The ArtWalk committee is working with several town entities, students and art groups to enhance the appearance of the barriers in the center. These barriers are part of a state grant, and have been placed to provide additional outdoor seating options for dining, attracting customers and others walking around.  

Artists were invited to submit work this past month. Artists created artwork on special 18 x 24” blank lawn-signs, selected for their cost effectiveness and durability in the outdoors, which the ArtWalk committee members fixed to the barriers. Artists were welcome to "adopt a barrier" and submit up to 4 art panels (live area of 72”x24”). Artwork will be placed over the orange barriers only. Artists could design as one full piece of artwork or break it up in 4 different pieces. The committee requested that the artists use bold and strong designs so there is more visibility from afar, and encouraged artists to incorporate the color orange to be more cohesive with the orange color of the barriers that will be visible above and below the panels.

Art panels were curated by the ArtWalk Committee and placed on display starting September 12th and will last while the weather permits. The only restrictions are that no political or religious thoughts are expressed, and the artwork and images are family friendly. Questions can be emailed to

Local artists and Lexington students are working together to enhance the look of barriers situated in Lexington Center. These barriers were provided by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, arrived a few weeks ago, and are situated to provide outdoor seating for residents visiting retailers.

   7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM WWII - We Shall Not Forget!  
    Contact: Sarah McDonough   781-862-1703

On Thursday, October 22, several Lexington residents with a personal connection to the Holocaust will present “We Shall Not Forget!” Led by Bebe Fallick, former Town Clerk, whose mother lost nearly 200 members of her extended family to the Holocaust, the presenters also include Cantor Lisa Doob of Temple Isaiah, Heidi Tyson, daughter of a Holocaust Survivor, and Peter Lund, speaking on the saving of Denmark’s Jewish Community.

At the outbreak of World War II, Hitler’s Third Reich launched a systematic program to eliminate all Jews from the earth. At war’s end, six million Jews had been killed. According to George Gamota, Chair of Lexington Remembers World War II, “As we commemorate the end of this war and honor the heroes we also need to remind ourselves why we fought in the first place: so no such tragedy and injustice can happen again.”

Bebe Fallick’s mother Mildred immigrated to the US from Belarus shortly after World War I. She corresponded with her large extended family, through World War II, and kept it up even when she no longer received any letters back. By the end of the war, only five men survived from a family of 200. Mildred was eventually reunited with her brother and nephew who came to live with her in Connecticut. Bebe will relate her mother’s story in a slide presentation entitled, “Letters to a Lost Family.”

Peter Lund, US Navy veteran and proud of his Danish heritage, will tell the story of how the people of Denmark refused to exterminate, imprison or turn over their Jewish citizens and instead risked everything to save them.

Cantor Lisa Doob from Temple Isaiah will open and close the program with a performance of Holocaust music.


This event will be held via Zoom webinar.

Registration is required. To register, please click here.

Lexington Remembers WWII is made possible in part by a grant from the Community Endowment of Lexington, an endowed fund of the Foundation for MetroWest. This project is also sponsored by the Lexington Rotary Club and Lexington Lions Club.

Celebrate the Spooky Season with a Halloween Story Walk Presented by LexFUN!

October 8, 2020 – Trick or….Read! Halloween may look a little different this year, but it’s certainly not cancelled. In lieu of a Halloween Parade, LexFUN! has organized a Halloween Story Walk for local families to enjoy.

The walk, which will give little ones the chance to show off their Halloween costume while reading pages from the kid-friendly Halloween story Room on the Broom, will be open for all at noon on Sunday, October 25 and will stay up until 5pm Halloween night. 

Residents of the local area are encouraged to take their little ones on this 0.4 mile loop, following the pages and arrows to enjoy the story. The activity is a great way to promote literacy and exercise while having some seasonal fun. The walk is free for all to enjoy over multiple days, no tickets necessary! For those who enjoy their adventure, please share with the community tagging @lexfun! on Facebook or @lexfunfamilies on Instagram.

Entrance to the walk will be located on Worthen Road, directly across from the LHS football field, and it continues along the fitness path and boardwalk.

   7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Book Group - The Boston Massacre a Family History  
    Contact: Sarah McDonough   781-862-1703

The Lexington Historical Society Book Group meets five times each year, and new members are always welcome! Our 2020-21 season will be "pay as you go", with a discounted rate for Zoom meetings where dinner will not be included. In-person meetings include a catered buffet dinner from Neillio's.

Our second meeting will be hosted by author Serena Zabin, who will lead a discussion about her most recent book, The Boston Massacre: A Family History.

This year, on the 250th anniversary of the Massacre, some of the names of those involved in the tragedy have become common names: those like Crispus Attucks and Captain John Preston are remembered by history. But there were others intimately involved in the altercations between soldiers and civilians who have been forgotten by history until now. For many of these soldiers brought their wives with them from England, and still more befriended and married locals, becoming real, though sometimes contested, members of the local community. These families lived elbow to elbow with the rest of Boston, working, having children, and trying to survive in a sometimes hostile environment. Their stories are just now being heard.

Join us for the whole series :

  • January 12: Voyage of Mercy: The USS Jamestown, the Irish Famine, and the Remarkable Story of America's First Humanitarian Mission by Stephen Puleo - Author-led discussion!
