Hello Neighbors & Newcomers,
We are so excited to offer a variety of fun events in March, including an all-members countdown to spring social, our popular ladies’ & lads’ nights, and many other opportunities for fun with neighbors! In order to keep everyone safe, we ask that members follow CDC guidelines and use their best judgment when joining us for in-person events. We hope all of our families had an enjoyable February break filled with rest and relaxation, and we so look forward to seeing more faces again as people feel comfortable!
We always welcome your ideas and feedback. Any questions or comments, feel free to email us at email@example.com or post ideas/thoughts to the Lexington Neighbors & Newcomers Members Facebook group.

Hoping that we can get together in person for this month’s Book Club, join us on Thursday March 10th, to talk about “The Vanishing Half” by Brit Bennett.
#1 New York Times Bestseller, one of Barack Obama’s favorite books of the year, named a best book of 2020 by NYT, Washington Post, NPR, People, Time Magazine & Vanity Fair, “The Vanishing Half” is the story of twin sisters, inseparable as children, who ultimately choose to live in two very different worlds, one black and one white.
After growing up together in a small, southern black community and running away at age sixteen, it’s not just the shape of their daily lives that is different as adults, it’s everything: their families, their communities, their racial identities. Many years later, one sister lives with her black daughter in the same southern town she once tried to escape. The other secretly passes for white, and her white husband knows nothing of her past. Still, even separated by so many miles and just as many lies, the fates of the twins remain intertwined. What will happen to the next generation, when their own daughters’ storylines intersect?
In order to ensure everyone’s health and comfort in an in-person gathering, we are suggesting that all participants take a Covid home test on the day of Book Club. This is not mandatory nor is proof of test require to attend.
RSVP by March 9th to firstname.lastname@example.org. On the morning of March 10th, we will email the details, including the address of our host to all. Please bring a drink of your choice and/or snacks to share.
