On April 28, 2023 the kids in the Village of Lexington had the opportunity to celebrate Arbor Day. Thank you to Moore Public Library and the Village of Lexington Environmental Committee for combining efforts and putting on a program for area kids and adults. The kids were able to partake in story hour with Ms. Betty Pasut and activities that were structured around Arbor Day. Each child left with a goodie bag and a seedling to plant. Arbor day was not just for the kids, Re-Leaf Michigan presented a program on questions homeowners have about the trees in their yards. The day ended with a trip to Meyer Elementary to talk to the fourth grade students and planting a gum tree at Lester Park.
Exciting news, the Village of Lexington is taking part in a program that will allow residents to drop off expired and unused prescription drugs, vitamins, and other type pills. Please note that there are certain items that cannot be dropped off. Liquids (including inhalers) and needles are not allowed to be dropped off and we ask that if you are depositing something in the drop box to check with the office for additional instructions. Pills that are in containers that are sealed individually should be removed from the packaging. This is a great opportunity for unused pills to be disposed of properly. Pills that are flushed down the toilet or are just plain thrown out have a high potential to end up in our ground water and eventually our lakes and streams. Please take a minute to stop in and drop off your expired or unused pills and utilize this service to have a positive influence on our environment.
