Adlers Leave Lexington with Meaningful Gift

By Martha Crosier Wood

When Nancy and Joel Adler moved this summer, they wanted to leave something for Lexington because felt so attached to the town and the Community Center, thus they established The Adler Fund for the capital improvement and expansion of the Community Center.

Members of the community are encouraged to make contributions. Checks should be made payable to the Friends of the Council on Aging with “Adler Fund” written in the memo line on the front of the check and mailed to the FCOA, Box 344, Lexington, MA 02420.
Nancy is a former chair of the Council on Aging was very involved in the development of the Community Center. She served on the Center’s advisory board until the couple left.

Joel served the town on the Conservation Commission and later as a member of the Community Preservation Committee. Most recently he led a financial course on Money Matters for seniors which met at the Community Center weekly.

Both Nancy and Joel served in Town Meeting for more than 40 years.
“Community activism has always been the Adler’s ‘thing’,” pointed out Janice Kennedy, chair of the Friends. “They both love and used the Community Center and want it to expand. Money raised will go for anything that will benefit the Center including physical expansion that will allow even more programs.”

“The Adlers will retain control of the Fund and how it is used,” Kennedy explained.

The Adlers moved to Lexington forty-four years ago because they were looking for a town with a real sense of community, Nancy said in an interview last summer. “I just hope that what I do is beneficial to the community.”

The Adler Fund will be used to continue that goal.
