Upcoming Events

Annual Holiday Party – Saturday, December 8th, 7-10:30pm

Toast the holidays with your fellow Neighbors & Newcomers for one of our biggest events of the year, the annual Holiday Party. Join us at Sanyo, a newly opened Asian restaurant in Lexington center. Appetizers provided by LNN and there will be a cash bar. Feel free to stay for the entire party or drop in for a quick hello. Kindly RSVP to the Evite that was sent out on November 15. If you have any questions, please contact Nassma at or Sadia at

Book Club – Tuesday, December 4 at 7:30pm

Hillbilly Elegy by J.D. Vance is a passionate and personal analysis of the loss of the American dream for a large segment of this country. The decline of white working-class Americans has been reported on with growing frequency and alarm – but never before been written about as searingly from the inside. Former marine and Yale Law School graduate, J.D. Vance tells the true story of what a social, regional, and class decline feels like. It is a deeply moving memoir, with its share of humor and vividly colorful figures – a story of how upward mobility really feels.

Come and join us for a fun and festive holiday Book Club!

Host: Sheila Tweeddale

Enjoy a festive and elegant lunch at Lexington’s lovely Artistry on the Green. A $28 Price Fixe Menu includes a starter, main dish as well as coffee or tea (tip not included). Space is limited to 20 for this annual and fun event, so RSVP ASAP! Also, in the spirit of holiday giving we are asking you to bring items for the Lexington Food Bank.

Bunco (& Left-Right-Center) – Tuesday, December 11 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 to RSVP and 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?

Coffee and Cookies – Thursday, December 13, 10:00-12:00

Join us for our regular monthly coffee talk with a bonus cookie swap. If you would like to participate in the cookie swap, please bring 2 dozen of your favorite baked holiday cookie/treats and a container to carry them home. And if you want to skip the swap and just chat over coffee, that is fine too. Looking forward to tasting everyone’s yummy treats!

Host: Pam Richter

No RSVP, just drop in! Contact Angela at with any questions.

Walking Group – Tuesdays at 9am

Weather has not been cooperating with us on Tuesdays this fall, but walking group is still going strong and will continue through the winter months. If it is really snowy or icy, then the walk may be switched to the Burlington Mall or coffee at Starbucks. Email Deb at to be added to the email group and receive the weekly walk details.
