A special storytelling reception will be   held on Thursday, May 30 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 pm, where light refreshments will be provided. This celebration of Lexington’s rich cultural diversity and the invaluable contributions of immigrants is a wonderful opportunity for the community to come together through art and shared stories.
