Good morning and welcome to LexObserver’s Friday news roundup!
We hope the holiday lights in Lexington Center are keeping your spirits up as the days get shorter.
Here’s our latest NewsMatch update from Erin:
Readers, you are amazing! With your help, we raised more than $13,000 in November. And that will all be matched by NewsMatch. The donation meter is going up, bit by bit, but we still need your support. Take advantage this week of an extra match by One2OneBodyscapes. Through Sunday, your donation will get matched twice: once by NewsMatch and once by One2OneBodyscapes, tripling the impact!
Thank you for reading, and we hope you enjoy this week’s news.
