“移民故事” 欢迎你的投稿

As a prelude to Lexington’s 250th anniversary celebration, and to kink off May AAPI Heritage Month, the Lexington Council for the Arts (LCA) and Chinese American Association Lexington (CAAL) are inviting residents to submit writings and paintings depicting the immigrant experience – an important part of the town’s history.

This celebrates diversity, equity, and inclusion by providing a platform for powerful stories of courage, resilience, and pursuing the American dream.

Submission categories are: Children (12 and under), Youth (13-17), and Adults for both writing (under 2000 words) and painting (11×14, 12×16, or 16×20 inches).

A panel will judge all entries due by May 10. Winning works will be featured at a public exhibition and storytelling event in late May during AAPI and Jewish American Heritage Month.

For more information, contact Elizabeth Xu ( exu@caal-ma.org ) or visit the website

Check back frequently for the latest announcements and updates on this event celebrating Lexington’s immigrant history and culture.





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.
