Happy Birthday Lexington! Everyone's invited to see Lexington open some very special birthday presents . . .
That's right -- the official 300th Anniversary Clock and 300th Anniversary Time Capsules will be part of the fun in a civic ceremony at Emery Park (at Depot Square) on May 25, 2013.
If you enjoyed the Bell Ringing on Incorporation Day, you will love this good old-fashioned community event for all ages. If you weren't able to attend Bell Ringing, make sure you don't miss this special and unique occasion.
Lexington will be 300 all year -- but Memorial Day Weekend presents the last major town-sponsored events and the 300th Anniversary Committee invites everyone to be a part! With something special Saturday, Sunday & Monday, this is a great year to be in Lexington for the whole weekend.
Join in the fun of an After Hours concert at Emery Park beginning at 3:30 p.m. (right after Discovery Day). Music sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lexington will take us back to Lexington in the fab 1960s! If you like, you can dress in 60s styles, or wear your favorite 300th Anniversary t-shirt...
Then, at 4:00 p.m., enjoy a short and fun community ceremony to unveil and dedicate the 300th Anniversary Clock and to celebrate the 300th Anniversary Time Capsules.
Consider Lexington in 2063 and, if you have suggestions for the "People's Time Capsule" please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org before May 1, 2013. The Time Capsule is cylindrical in shape and approximately 20" long and 5 3/4" in diameter.
The 300th Anniversary Clock is a gift to the Town of Lexington from the Lions Club of Lexington and the Rotary Club of Lexington.
The 300th Anniversary Time Capsules are a gift to the Town of Lexington from Stan Abkovitz of Dynamet Technology. One Time Capsule will hold items reflecting Lexington's government. The "People's Time Capsule" will reflect community life in 2013.
