In Lexington, Fridays are alive in the summer. That’s because of a series of concerts that the Lexington-Rockbridge Jaycees host in W&L’s Davidson Park.

As a result of the series, the Jaycees recently announced a $10,000 donation to three local charities —  the Blue Ridge Autism and Achievement Center (BRAAC), the Rockbridge SPCA and the Rockbridge Relief Association (RARA). And Washington and Lee gets credit for a big assist.

Not only did W&L make Davidson Park available for the events on those lazy Friday evenings last summer, but both the Interfraternity Council and the Panhellenic Council sponsored them, to the tune of $500 — another instance of W&L student organizations’ engagement in the Lexington community.
