Lexington Historical Society has a long history of partnering with other organizations in town, and I’m thrilled to announce that we will be working with New Legacy Culture Center in a new partnership this fall.
The New Legacy Cultural Center is a new organization focused on education and culture. It offers classes to people of all ages in Lexington such as Chinese brush painting, meditation, yoga, English language, and Chinese language. While many of the classes are centered around aspects of Chinese culture, the goal of New Legacy Cultural Center is to offer learning experiences to people in the community of all cultures. The classes take place on Saturdays at Lexington High School.
Ting Fang, one of the organization’s volunteers, met with me and Chris Kauffman, our Manager of Education and Interpretation, to see if Lexington Historical Society would have something to offer that might fit in with their mission. Since we’re all about learning here, we were very excited!
We’ve decided to offer a “Colonial Kids” program, similar to the Colonial Kids at the Depot. Each session will cover a historical topic designed in a way to help children grasp the concepts through a hands-on approach. Kids will learn about Lexington in the colonial era, and how life then compares to life today. The program will begin on Saturday, October 20 and will meet every Saturday for eight weeks (except November 24) from 1pm to 2pm.
Members of Lexington Historical Society get a discount on registration, and will pay just $80 for this program (email firstname.lastname@example.org for a discount code). The cost is $130 for non-members. Visit the New Legacy Cultural Center website to register.
We are thrilled to be working with the New Legacy Cultural Center, and look forward to discovering new partnership possibilities to bring history to the community!
