Mayor Jim Gray’s office reports, “Since opening one year ago, Lexington’s new Senior Center has added over 3,000 new participants. We predicted it would be a home run with seniors because it’s devoted to their interests, their needs and their priorities. These numbers tell us, this place is a success!”
