Monthly Special Plate Collection

This Sunday, June 4th, we welcome Jill Smilow, who heads up the Lexington METCO Scholarship Fund. METCO, Inc. is a voluntary school integration program that began over 50 years ago in Boston. The program provides suburban public school education to African-American, Hispanic, and Asian students from Boston. The Lexington Public School Department has participated in the METCO program since 1968. All non-pledge donations given during the collection will go to benefit their important programs.
