Upcoming Events

Walking Group – Tuesdays at 9am starting September 4

Everyone is welcome to join the walking group each Tuesday. The location of each walk varies to keep it interesting – we aim for about 90 minute walks. Deb will email the night before with the location (waiting until Monday evening avoids last minute changes due to weather). Some paths are flatter / stroller friendly and some are not – we’ll do our best to let you know trail conditions beforehand. No RSVP necessary – just show up, ready to walk. If you’re running late, call or text Deb & we’ll make arrangements to meet you.

Email Deb at debbra.zucker@gmail.com to be added to the email group and receive the weekly walk details.

Our first walk of the season is Tues., Sept 4 at 9am. Meet at Starbucks on Bedford St. (60 Bedford Street, Lexington). We will walk the bike path which is paved & shaded.


Book Club – Thursday, September 13 at 7:30pm

This month’s book is “Little Fires Everywhere” by Celeste Ng. The Richardson family lives in the planned community of Shaker Heights, Ohio—a place of wealth, comfort, and stability—and they are a clan that embodies those traits. But when Mia, a single mother, and her fifteen year old daughter, Pearl, rent a house in the area, their very different lives will merge with those of the Richardson family and begin to contort the carefully laid lattice that supports their views. Little Fires Everywhere explores the weight of long-held secrets and the ferocious pull of motherhood-and the danger of believing that planning and following the rules can avert disaster, or heartbreak

Host: Sue Stapleton. RSVP to Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com


Lunch Bunch – Friday, September 14 at 12:00pm

Join your LNN friends for a delicious local lunch. This month we’re dining Lexx, a long-standing Lexington favorite.

Ladie’s Movie Night – Thursday, September 20 7:30pm

Please join us for a fun and entertaining ladies’ night, hosted in the home of an LNN member. We will have time to socialize with friends old and new before watching a movie together. Snacks will be provided. Members are kindly asked to bring a beverage to share. RSVP to Lesley at lesleysegal@hotmail.com for location details.


Bunco (& Left-Right-Center) – Tuesday, September 25 at 7:30pm

Bring: $5 ante for Bunco; $3 for L-R-C (exact change appreciated!); and a beverage or snack to share
RSVP: email Kessa at kessaglisic@gmail.com for location details

About the Games: Bunco is an entertaining, simple dice game, with no experience required. It’s played in multiple rounds with players alternating turns rolling the dice to match the target number. Whoever wins the most rounds is the overall winner. And because players rotate tables, it is a great way to meet and chat with different people. Left-Right-Center is an even simpler game, faster moving than Bunco, and is played at the end of the evening. Did we mention there’s no experience required?


Open House Coffee

Wednesday, September 26, 10:00-12:00

No RSVP: Just drop in!

Host: Angela Benson. Any questions or if you are interested in hosting a future coffee, email Angela at jammbenson@sbcglobal.net


Men’s Pub Night – Thursday, September 27 at 7:30pm
