Lakewood Celebrates National Night Out

On Tuesday, Aug. 5, the community celebrated National Night Out with neighborhood parties throughout the City of Lakewood.

Lakewood City Councilmembers, Congressman Denny Heck, members of the Lakewood Police Department and other representatives stopped by the 40 or so neighborhood celebrations that took place throughout community, from parks to neighbors' back yards.

All of them showed how fun and important it is for neighbors to meet their neighbors and take ownership in their community.
