The Lexington Senior Citizen Center needs quite a bit of renovation including a new roof, electrical wiring, wall repair, and more. They held an event with music and food on Sunday, April 5 to start raising funds for the repairs. Thanks to the hard work of volunteers and musicians and the generous donations from the community, the group raised over $200 in a couple of hours.
