Dear Newcomers,
The holidays are upon us. There are fun activities planned that we hope you have
time to fit into your busy schedules.

Please take the time to answer our survey
We need your feedback to better know what you want, what is working and what
needs improvement. If you have ideas, are willing to host events, or would like to
help please let us know!

If you haven’t renewed your membership for 2015-2016 there is still time. We have tried to make it easier by providing an online payment option. Go to our website and visit the “Join” tab, then click on the “pay membership fee” link. This will take you to a secure PayPal site that will allow you pay online. NOTE: If you have joined since April 1, you are paid in full until 2016. We will be closing out our membership soon and preparing our mailing list so don’t miss out! You may still send in a check made out to “Lexington Newcomers” to our membership chairperson: Liz Murray, 5 Peachtree Road, Lexington, MA 02420 We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a bright new year.
