New-Look Newsletter Hits Households

The City of Lakewood’s newsletter underwent an aesthetic and digital facelift for 2014.

This week, residents and online users are experiencing the improved Connections newsletter for the first time. The Winter 2014 issue is scheduled to begin arriving in Lakewood mailboxes Thursday.

In an age of decreased content, Connections readers will notice an increase of news stories and articles compared to previous issues. The Winter 2014 edition includes:

  • A cover story about what the City is doing to help fix Interstate 5’s traffic woes
  • A Q&A with newly elected City Councilmember John Simpson
  • A piece on Lakewood Police celebrating their 10th year
  • Articles on the opening of Hobby Lobby and the relocation of MultiCare

Readers will also find the latest edition of the City’s Recreation guide, which includes information on upcoming events such as the Fairy Garden Tea Party and the Soggy Doggy 5K, as well as registration information for classes and activities at the Lakewood Senior Activity Center.

Online users will also notice new and improved features for Connections. The newsletter is being published on a new digital platform that will allow users to easily navigate pages, view content and interact with the document. Bonus: The digital edition features a fun video from the City of Lakewood’s Annual Tree Lighting and Jingle Bell Rock 5K.
