Lexington's Board of Selectmen support some projects and question others as proposals shape up prior to annual Town Meeting.
Earlier this week, the Board of Selectmen was asked to offer some guidance on projects that could be put before annual Town Meeting for Community Preservation Act funding in fiscal 2013. Opinions were split this past Monday about stabilizing the White House, upgrading the Muzzey Senior Center and pushing forward with plans to upgrade the Cary Memorial Building, but the BOS was OK endorsing plans to continue with the Paint Mine barn preservation and implementing certain components of the Battle Green Master Plan.

Whether its people, places or groups united by belief, community can mean many things to many people. A Sept. 27 program “What Does Community Mean” will aim to get it all out on the table. Lexington League of Women Voters organized the event, which is also sponsored by Cary Memorial Library, the Council on Aging, the Recreation Department, Human Services, PTA, the Interfaith Clergy Association and others.

Why not get it started here? We’re sure folks will have …

... before the weekend.
Remember, there's a Lexington Historical Society party at 7:30 p.m. tonight at Lexington Depot. I hope to see you there. Have a slice of cake and celebrate 125 years of keeping Lexington history alive. Don't make plans for the Senior Center on Tuesday, Aug. 2. It's closed. Town Manager Carl Valente said they are working on a major piece of water equipment, which will leave the Massachusetts Avenue center without water. Finally, get to the town website and take a quick survey to let officials know how you're using the town's website. Have a safe and fun weekend. See you on Monday.
