Five Things You Need to Know Today: Sept. 27
Conversations about community and possible Boy Scout troop expansion will take place today in Lexington.
1. A facilitated discussion about becoming part of community and benefitting from it will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight at St. Brigid's. Get there early, because coffee's at 6:45. A whole host of local orgs are supporting the event, which is called What Does Community Mean: How Can We Find It Together? As of Monday evening, the Community Center Task Force was the only town board to have this posted as a public meeting.
2. Other public meetings posted for today on the town website include Capital Expenditures at 8 a.m. at the Town Office Building; the EDCO Collaborative of Greater Boston at 1 p.m. in Waltham; the Diamond Middle School Site Council at 4 p.m. at that school and the Conservation Commission at 7:30 p.m. at Cary Memorial Building.
3. Scouts' honor runs deep in Lexington. So much so that there's a meeting at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Church of the Sacred Heart on Follen Street to discuss the creation of (at least) one additional troop in town.
5. A foggy morning gives way to a partly sunny day with highs about 74, according to the National Weather Service, which predicts a cooler evening, with slight chance of precipitation and lows about 57.
