Bharti Elected to Auditorium Board at Annual Meeting


Ajay Bharti, a lifelong resident of Lexington, Missouri, and owner of Bharti Liquor, was elected to a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the Lexington Auditorium Association at its annual meeting on July 31, 2017.


In accepting the invitation to join the board, Ajay says “The Lexington Auditorium is a great asset for our community, and I want to bring exciting events to The LEX for the children and adults in our community.”  According to Ajay, he is proud to be a member of “the greatest class to graduate from LHS - the class of 2000!” Ajay is also a graduate of Missouri State University in Springfield, MO, with a BS in Business Administration.  He is married to Vaishu Bharti, and they have one son, Amer Bharti.


“We look forward to Ajay's creative marketing skills and his dynamic energy to bring more exciting activities to our civic center,” said Abigail Tempel, president of the Association,”

    Ajay is currently a contestant in Lexington’s Community Fair fundraising event, “Kiss the Pig” contest.  He has designated The LEX as the beneficiary of 50% of the funds raised, with the remaining 50% going to the Fair Board.  He would love to have others support him in this effort by following his clever campaign on “Kiss the Pig” Facebook page, the Youtube channel, and his Facebook Live feed, as well as a gofundme option for donors.



  In other business at the annual meeting, Barbara Fay was re-elected to a second three-year term. Re-elected officers are Abigail Tempel, president; Jacki Worthington, vice-president; Barbara Fay, secretary; and Erica Morris, treasurer. Abigail recognized retiring board members, Rick Cottrell, Amie Eaton, and Bettina Esser.
