莱镇活动早知道 – Lexington Happenings I 2024 April

云朵把它们的宝藏交给田野,
在泛起涟漪的池塘上轻轻摇晃,
落下吹响序曲的雨点,

就让云朵蓄积的全部水分,
在倾泻而下的雨水中,

涌向这片清新的世界。

The Clouds consign their treasures to the fields,
And, softly shaking on the dimpled pool,
Prelusive drops; let all their moisture flow,
In large effusion, o’er the freshen’d world.
— The Seasons: Spring

Poet, James Thomson

“移民故事” 欢迎你的投稿

移民是美国社会的重要组成部分。无论是提高社区的活力,还是丰富社区的文化画卷,都离不开一代又一代来自世界各地、不同背景的移民。作为建镇250周年的先导活动之一,莱镇华人协会(CAAL)和莱镇艺术委员会(LCA)将在今年5月的亚裔传统月和犹太裔传统月期间举办一场移民故事展览,致敬为美国以及莱镇建设做出了贡献的一代又一代移民。

我们诚邀所有莱镇居民以及相关人士提交文学和绘画作品,记录你所知道的移民经历、情感、成就以及所经历的挑战。我们鼓励所有人分享你所知道的关于勇气、坚韧以及追求美好生活的故事,彰显多元化、公平性和包容性的重要性。

具体内容将会持续在活动网站更新

莱镇活动早知道 – Lexington Happenings I 2024 March

It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.
—Great Expectations, Novelist, Charles Dickens


那是个典型的三月天,日照灼热,寒风凛冽:阳光下感觉是夏天,阴影里却是冬天。

—《远大前程》查尔斯·狄更斯,小说家
