Dog Meet-Up
Tuesdays at 11am

Join us for a doggie meet-up! Dog owners and dog lovers welcome.  We’ll meet at Chiesa Farm Meadow where dogs can roam off-leash.  Optional walk/hike from there. 

Parking available at Diamond Middle School on Sedge Rd.  Look for the trail head sign.  The meadow is a very short hike from there.  It can be muddy, but there’s a large hill that stays dry most of the time.  Bring along your leash, waste bags and a towel for wiping muddy paws! 

RSVP requested: debbra.zucker@gmail.com .  Also contact Deb with any questions and/or if you are interested in a doggie meet-up but if another day/time works better for you.

Coffee Talk
Wednesdays at 11am

Come out and enjoy the warmer weather this Wednesday!  Meet at Hastings Park Gazebo – on the corner of Mass Ave and Worthen Road.  No need to RSVP.

Questions about coffee talk: email Kim at kimwcramer@gmail.com

Walking Group
Thursdays at 9am

Note the new date and time. 

Come enjoy New England spring each Thursday at 9am for a brisk 1-1.5 hour walk.  It’s a great way to chat with your fellow LNN members and also explore new parts of Lexington and the surrounding area.  Due to changing weather conditions, walk location is determined the day before.  So to get details about each week’s walk, get on the Walking Group distribution list –  email Debbie at dfortin01748@hotmail.com.  Also feel free to contact Debbie with any questions or suggestions for hikes!

Book Club
Thursday, April 8 at 7:30pm

Join us virtually for our discussion of the New York Times bestseller Normal People by Sally Rooney. Normal People is the story of mutual fascination, friendship and love between Connell and Marianne. It takes us from that first awkward but electrifying conversation high school in Ireland to the years beyond at Trinity College in Dublin, in the company of two people who try to stay apart but have such a magnetism that they find that they can’t. Normal People is now an Emmy nominated Hulu original series.

RSVP by April 6 to Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com
You will receive a Zoom link/password and instructions on how to connect.

Hunger is still part of many lives.  Won’t you help by donating food or volunteering?  We are collecting food for Arlington Eats.  Their most needed items include:  olive oil (not big Costco sizes, small to medium sizes are best), shelf-stable soup (all kinds), snacks (nuts, chips, cookies, granola bars – again, regular-sized boxes/bags are best and including gluten-free snacks), cereal (regular sized boxes, not individual sizes).  Additional non-perishable foods are welcome as well.  There will be a bin to place your donations in on Susan’s front porch at 231 Marrett Rd until April 8th.  

Join a group of LNN volunteers on Friday, April 9th, 1-3:00pm.   LNN volunteers will help unload items, weigh them, date check them, sort and stock them.  The food pantry will be well ventilated.  Hand sanitizers and gloves will be provided for your safety.  Masks are required.
