Lexington’s Annual Christmas Eve Caroling

Please bring family and friends to Lexington’s 11th annual Christmas Eve Caroling event!  As always, caroling will take place from 4:00 – 4:30 pm on December 24, 2014 at the Hastings Park Bandstand in Lexington, which is located at the corner of Massachusetts Avenue and Worthen Road.  Join in this town tradition that is enjoyed by several hundred residents and neighbors each year who gather to sing an assortment of traditional and favorite carols.  Children will be invited up onto the bandstand with the musicians to ring bells to the final song - Jingle Bells, of course!  Song sheets, hot chocolate, and cookies will be provided to all!  Please bring your own candles or flashlights.   

For years, Hank Manz and Peter Kelley have been helping out with the event by dutifully donating and serving up hot chocolate and cookies for the carolers.  In addition, for some time the Dance Inn has been lending jingle bells for the children to ring during "Jingle Bells."  In addition, the Lexington Rotary Club and the Lexington Lions Club joined the team in 2010 to help organize and co-sponsor this community event!

• The Annual Unity Walk and Presentations. March together from the Battle Green monument starting at 11:00 a.m., to Grace Chapel. Then, stay for presentations by a community member who has fulfilled the legacy of Dr. King’s service, for a musical performance, and for our featured guest, Lexington resident and National Poetry Slam Champion Regie O’Hare Gibson.
• Community Day at the Waltham YMCA. Treat homeless families from Lexington, Bedford, and Waltham to a day of sports, activities, learning programs, and refreshments.

Donations are distributed to organizations that serve Lexington and surrounding communities, including COMPASS For Kids, Lexington Food Pantry, Cradles to Crayons, and more.

Admission to the program is free and all are welcome to attend any or all of the MLK Day of Service events. Donations can be made through the Town Celebrations Committee MLK Day Fund.

Citizens for Lexington Conservation will be offering a first ever series of snowshoe walks this winter. The purpose of these walks will be to get outside and make use of those snowshoes that you may have long neglected while enjoying the winter scenery of New England winter. The use of ski poles is recommended, and don’t forget to bring your water bottle to avoid becoming dehydrated. 

Falling rain or heavy snow will cancel the walk. If snow cover is thin we will walk anyway but perhaps leave the snowshoes behind.

Meet in the Employee parking lot at Brookhaven at Lexington, 1010 Waltham Street. Bear to the right on entering the grounds at Brookhaven following the Event Parking signs. The lot is the first on your right.

The appetizer for this delectable program is English composer Sir Edward Elgar’s poignant and romantic Serenade for Strings.

Mendelssohn’s boisterous “Italian” Symphony No. 4 imparts the final flavor of the evening, balancing out this very European presentation for the senses.
