A few cancellations; tax bills.
"Five Things you Need to Know Today" is a Patch column that provides readers with essential, daily information at a glance. Check back later for more, and let us know what you think of the new feature in the comments section.
1. It’s snowing…again. The National Weather Service forecasted three to seven inches to fall in Lexington during the day on Friday, after several inches overnight. Snow is expected to taper off around 1 p.m. on Friday. Many schools in the area have announced they will be closed for the day. See the complete list here.
2. The Lexington Senior Center expected (as of last night) to open as usual at 8:30 a.m., however due to the storm, has cancelled the Meals on Wheels and LexCafe lunch program, plus the afternoon current events group and Bingo.
3. Third quarter tax bills will be mailed today, according to the town website. The bills, which typically are sent out in late December, were delayed because the town had its tax rate recertified by the state Dept. of Revenue following a clerical error made by the town before the rates were originally approved. See related story here.
5. Jazz Nite 2 will be held at Lexington High School tonight at 7:30 p.m. The free event features student-composed works by members of the Beginning Jazz Improvisation and Seminar in Jazz Improvisation classes.
