As part of Lexington’s historic 300th Anniversary celebration, 8th grade students are cordially invited to register as participants in an historic All-Town Mock Town Meeting at Cary Hall. Lexington has been governed by Town Meeting since our incorporation on March 31, 1713. This year, students have the chance to step into the shoes of elected Lexington representatives. Permission slips will be sent home through school or click here to print.

Winter Mock Town Meetings in Lexington Middle Schools:
Social Studies teachers presented special civics lessons on Lexington’s local government, including a classroom Mock Town Meeting. Professional development to support these units was provided by the Lexington Education Foundation, and overseen by Matt Mehler, Social Studies Department Chair. Community support for this project has been in collaboration with the Town Meeting Members Association and the League of Women Voters of Lexington.
Our own history book: “Lexington Then and Now”
In preparation for this special unit of studies, the 300th Anniversary Committee commissioned an exciting comic book. The project was generously supported by the League of Women Voters of Lexington,
the Town Meeting Members Association and the Chinese American Association of Lexington. The 300th Book Team worked with author/illustrator Bentley Boyd to design a book highlighting 300 years of Lexington history and an engaging depiction of Town Meeting. Look for the book at LexCelebrate! Incorporation Weekend.
