A very successful opening day for the Lexington Farmers Market on May 29. Was a bit chilly and damp but it doesn’t rain under the pavilion. Next one will be June 12 — every other Saturday through October, 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at the Lexington Municipal Building.
The rain stopped in time for the Memorial Day Observance and parade in West Kill May 31. The Town of Lexington Fire/Rescue Company and Ladies Auxiliary and Veterans marched and there was a very nice turnout of Lexington/West Kill residents for the parade. Firefighter Rose Randolph played “Taps” at the cemetery in the hamlet and also at the Memorial Monument. Everyone went back to the West Kill Fire Station and enjoyed visiting with one another and the ice cream provided by the Lexington Fire/Rescue Company.
