The Lexington Senior Citizen Center hosted their
Annual Thanksgiving Dinner last week. A large
crowd of young and old gathered in their facility
located on the Square in downtown Lexington to enjoy a meal that included traditional Thanksgiving
favorites and lots of wonderful music. Here are a few pictures from the event. You’ll find some more
on page B4 of today’s paper.
