Celebrate! Lexington Community Breakfast

Former Mayor Jim Gray presents the Isabel Yates Community Champion Award at the annual Celebrate! Lexington Community Breakfast. Not only is the award named in her honor, Isabel Yates was recognized as its first recipient.

Community Champion Daffodil Drift planting – At our annual AIB Lexington Community Breakfast, we honor former Vice Mayor Isabel Yates through our Community Champion Award for her unceasing work in beautification and historic preservation. Rather than present her with a plaque, we planted the daffodil drift in her honor. The award continues to be presented annually and a new section of the drift is planted to celebrate that year’s winner.

Community Champions:
2019 – Liz Pattengill
2018 – Marcia Farris (posthumously)
2017 – Isabel Yates
