The town has started to celebrate its <a href="http://www.lexington300.org/">300th anniversary</a>, culminating next May.<br /><br />Among this month’s kick-off activities, two thousand Lexington citizens (out of 31,000) gathered for a collective snapshot of the community today. Benn Craig took the <a href="http://wickedlocal.mycapture.com/mycapture/enlarge_remote.asp?source=jsapi&amp;remoteimageid=6041369">photograph of that gathering above</a> for Wicked Local.<br /><br />The official town photo is a composite of several images by Joanne Rath, published in a regional edition of yesterday’s <i>Boston Globe</i>. On <a href="http://www.boston.com/yourtown/lexington/lexington_alltown_photo/">this <i>Globe</i> webpage</a> you can see that photograph, and enlarge and pan across it to see individual faces. Note the Revolutionary War reenactors from both forces in the front row.<div class="blogger-post-footer"><img width='1' height='1' src='https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/28102666-194117679989694165?l=boston1775.blogspot.com' alt='' /></div>
