LexFUN! is Your Connection to EVERYTHING for Young Families in Lexington!
Lexington’s Five and Under Network, Inc. (LexFUN!) pulled together a team of more than 25 riders to join the LexFUN! Flyers team for Lexington’s first PMC Kids Ride. They sported yellow LexFUN! Flyers shirts with the motto “Heroes come in all sizes,” reflecting the fact that most of their members are 5 years old and younger. LexFUN! Members Clara and Penny Tierney decorated their bikes and helmets with colorful decorations for the ride. LexFUN! Member Andrew Naiarian and LexFUN! Alumni, Nicholas Durant paired up at the starting line, waiting for the ride to begin. The LexFUN! Team raised over $3,000 for the ride and were so happy they could help kids battling cancer.
Once again in 2015, LexFUN! will be hosting two teams to compete in the LEF Trivia Bee to benefit local schools. Last year, both LexFUN! teams made it to the final round of the Trivia Bee.
As one of the largest parents’ networks in the area (500+ member families), LexFUN! connects young families to playgroups, parenting seminars, drop-in-centers, arts and crafts programs, holiday celebrations, civic activities in town, coffee get-togethers for moms, babysitters, parent panels on preparing for kindergarten, tips on kid-friendly places to eat, shop and visit, and most of all, lots of FUN!
