Big Thursday to further improve park – The Lexington Sertoma Club is starting a tradition. Last year, the service club held an inaugural Big Thursday fundraiser to help pay for improvements at Gibson Pond Park. The money funded a boardwalk and scenic overlook on 12 Mile Creek in the park off Gibson Road. Town officials, Chamber of Commerce leaders and Sertoma Club members cut the ribbon for the new overlook Tuesday. And the Sertoma Club announced plans for another fundraiser for the park. A second Big Thursday event is planned for October 21 at the Lexington Town Conference Center. Last year’s Big Thursday steak dinner raised $8,500 for the scenic overlook. This year’s fundraiser will allow the club to add more enhancements along 12 Mile Creek and the Gibson Pond Dam, said Tommy Harmon, chairman of the Sertoma Club board. That includes extending a walkway railing along the dam so people can have easier access to the other side of the pond.
