January 2022 Newsletter

Hello Neighbors & Newcomers,

Welcome to 2022! As we look back on 2021, it was another challenging year, yet we managed to have a lot of fun, meet each other in person multiple times, and even re-launched a few great activities, like Bunco and Lunch Bunch! We hope you had a wonderful holiday season and a nice, relaxing break with loved ones. We are looking forward to some fun, upcoming events in the new year but also want to be cautious and respectful of our community during the ongoing challenges. We will pause some indoor events and host some fun virtual activities in the meantime!

We always welcome your ideas and feedback. Any questions or comments, feel free to email us at lncexecs@lexington-newcomers.org or post ideas/thoughts to the Lexington Neighbors & Newcomers Members Facebook group.

Upcoming Events

Book Club
Thursday, January 13 at 7pm

Join us next Thursday, January 13th to talk about this month Book Club selection, The House of the Mosque, by Kader Abdolah.

Iran, 1969. Aqa Jaan’s family has lived in the house of the mosque for eight centuries. The house is teeming with life, played out under the watchful eyes of the storks that nest on the minarets above. But this family will experience upheaval unknown to previous generations. For in Iran, political unrest is brewing. The shah is losing his hold on power; the ayatollah incites rebellion from his exile in France; and one day the ayatollah returns. The consequences will be felt in every corner of Aqa Jaan’s family.

RSVP by January 11th to lexnnbookclub@gmail.com. Due to the current COVID spike, we will be doing Book Club via Zoom this time around. Once you RSVP, we will send all participants the zoom invite the morning of January 13th.
