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."
