New Lakewood Resident? Come to This Event

Not a new resident? Come anyway.

Are you a new resident?

The city of Lakewood wants to welcome you

If you’re not a new resident, that’s OK. Come anyway.

Sponsored by the city’s and the Lakewood Family Collaborative, the Welcome to Lakewood is slated to take place in the cafeteria of from to 7 to 9 p.m. April 25.

April Stoltz, an event volunteer, attended Monday’s board of education meeting, to invite the board and the community to attend the event.

“We want to offer a public invitation to someone who moved to Lakewood in the past two years — or people who just want to make some connections,” she said.

“Welcome to Lakewood is a fun, new event where residents can learn more about local civic organizations, services and ways to get involved in Lakewood,” according to a news release.

In addition to the welcome, the event will feature information tables representing 30 institutions, including , community service groups and various civic organizations.

Officials from the city, schools and area politicians will be on hand to offer a welcome — as well as answer questions and address concerns.

“The best community — and we qualify already — is a community where the citizens are engaged and involved,” Stoltz said. “Think about the new people on your streets. This could be a great way to make an introduction.”
