Lakewood celebrates 65 years as an incorporated city

You’re invited to Lakewood’s 65th Anniversary Celebration!

Sixty-five years ago on April 16, 1954, a daring experiment in community building began with Lakewood becoming an incorporated city after a successful vote by local residents.

In celebration, the public is invited to a community-wide anniversary gathering to be held at 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 13 at Airplane Playground at Del Valle Park with the Lakewood City Council and Woody the Tree, the city’s 65th anniversary mascot.

Several classic 1950s cars will also be featured, and attendees will receive a commemorative 65th anniversary lapel pin, ’50s era collectible card and other giveaways (while supplies last).

Woody will be featured in a series of collectible cards depicting him through each decade since Lakewood’s incorporation. These cards and other “Woody’s Goodies” will be given out as prizes tied to an upcoming series of online trivia questions related to Lakewood.

Stay tuned for more information by reading upcoming eMagazines and following us on Facebook.

And we hope to see you on April 13th at Del Valle Park!
