Countdown Calendar

As we commemorate the 250th anniversary of the Battle of Lexington, this interactive calendar stands as a visual testament to our town’s rich history and vibrant community spirit.

Positioned prominently in front of the town office building, the Countdown Calendar is a collaborative effort engaging 365 local groups as ‘Calendar Keepers.’ From schools to civic organizations to local businesses, each group will take on the responsibility of flipping the calendar days, ensuring the countdown remains active and prominent. This collective endeavor not only symbolizes the passage of time leading to this historic milestone but also underscores the unity and pride that define our town’s identity.

Join us as we mark each day closer to this significant anniversary with reverence, anticipation, and unity.

The Countdown Calendar is an interactive calendar counting down the dates to the 250 anniversary of the Battle of Lexington.
