    3. Hello,   For those of you who have an interest in Lexington, MA,   they are celebrating their 300th anniversary this year.   http://www.lexingtonma.gov/   http://www.lexington300.org/ (Parade -  today)   Lexington was first settled circa 1642[ as part of Cambridge, Massachusetts. What is now Lexington was then incorporated as a parish, called Cambridge Farms, in 1691. This allowed them to have a separate church and minister, but were still under jurisdiction of the Town of Cambridge. Lexington was incorporated as a separate town in 1713. It was then that it got the name Lexington http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lexington,_Massachusetts   http://lhsoc.weebly.com/ (Lexington Historical Society)   .. And, don't forget that in at least 2 states ....  tomorrow is "Patriot's Day"  where parades and other activities are going on.    Including the events in Concord, MA:   http://concordchamberofcommerce.org/   (Maine is the other state, and I can't remember the other one at the moment.)   Betty             (near Lowell, MA)   (on Lists and Boards  for 12 yrs.;  now an Admin for 10 Lists and 5 Boards)
