The Country Fair was thought of as a day for everyone in the community to come together and celebrate that all of us comprise
Lexington! It is with great pleasure and pride that we saw all the smiling faces on children and adults on September 22nd! Those
smiles were in recognition of the ideas, hard work and commitment of over 200 volunteers and 30 vendors that help to make the Country Fair a success!
Kim Effron, Polly Kienle, Denise Ricketts and Stephanie
Mitzenmacher worked on planning and organizing the overall fair.
Kim Effron provided the nuances of the hospitality area.
Polly Kienle along with her Thanks for the Memories team, Sara Bossertt and Carin Casey gave all that visited the opportunity to submit their pictures and memories about Lexington. Stay tuned for more from that group over the course of the celebration.
Stephanie Mitzenmacher along with the assistance of Denise rickets on September 22 took care of all the volunteers and vendor needs.
Ilene Benghiat Francine Steigltz provided magnificent logistical support from the Opening Ceremony to the Country Fair.
The Blue Ribbon Contest kicked off the Country Fair with approximately 40 entries in the Garden and Food categories.
Thanks to Carolyn Goldstein, Cristina Burwell and Becky Sue Epstein, the organizers.
Diane Daley ensured that all faire goers were able to sample
dancing, poetry, jazz, and classical music just to name a few. Folks were able to listen to Local talent and demonstrations under the large tent, representing the diversity of the town.
Corrine Steigerwald along with her diligent textile and fiber workers provided a vibrant display of various handmade items
to wet our curiosity for the pending Fashion Revue on October 27th.
We would like to thank Don Mahoney and the JW Hayden Recreation Centre staff. They were instrumental in providing space, equipment and engaging staff to keep our children moving at the field games. We would also like to thank Lexington Public Schools for providing additional field game equipment to support this area.
Wilson Farm contributed to the Lower Hayden activities by having pumpkin decorating. If you enjoyed how the Fairgrounds looked all decorations were courtesy of Wilson Farm who also was a vendor who provided some food along with The Meat House, Great Harvest Bread, Wagon Wheel, Lexington Lion’s Club and Qdoba Mexican Grill.
The Chinese American Association of Lexington (CAAL) and Indian Americans of Lexington (IAL) provided the fair goers with a sample of traditional Chinese and Indian activities. CAAL taught anyone willing to learn how to make Zong Ze. IAL added to the
beauty of our residents by providing Henna applications to resident’s hands. If your interested were in games then there were board games at Hastings Park or field games at Lower Hayden.
Help Around Town, Inc., Founder Reem Yared, took the fair to a new level by providing speakers to address recent concerns in the job market. These speakers included: Janice Caillet, Thara Pillai, Susan Shapiro, Gail Liebhaber, Tammy Kahn Fennel and Carol Fishman Cohen.
Special thanks to the Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts. Hank Manz and troop volunteers slept-over under the tent for two nights
to help keep it secure. The Boys Scouts assisted with the set up and clean up. The Girl Scouts assisted with the clean up as the fair was closing.
Thank you to all of the Town employees working with Donna Hooper, Town Clerk, Chief of Police Joe O’Leary, Operations Manager of DPW David Pinsault and Department of Health, Gerard Cody.
This is a good example of We are Lexington!! It could not have been done without the wonderful people of Lexington!!
