Lakewood Senior Activity Center BBQ Blasts Off

Lakewood ...we have liftoff.

Few would mistake our community for Cape Canaveral, but the Lakewood Senior Activity Center was the site of its own out-of-this-atmosphere party this week, as the seniors held their annual summer barbecue.

With a theme of "3,2,1 ... Blastoff," the 80 or so people in attendance got a space-age experience that included barbecue food cooked by Parks, Recreation and Community Services employees, music by the group Community Blend and rocket-themed party favors.

"We had an amazing time," said LSAC Coordinator Elizabeth Scheid. "The seniors had so much fun and the whole outer-space feel was great."
