Plans are in the final stages for the 127th Annual Lexington High School Alumni Banquet set for 6 p.m. Saturday, June 16, 2018 at the Lexington High School west gym. Tickets are now on sale at U-Save Pharmacy for $25 each.
Honor classes are those ending in “8” and St. Ann’s graduates from those years will join the LHS alumni in celebrating. Alumni officers and honor class chairmen have been meeting since February to make plans and assist honor classes with planning their gatherings.
