Comcast has awarded the Lakewood Historical Society a $1,000 grant to help it fund a remodeling of the museum’s displays as well as a new exhibit. Becky Huber, president of the Society, said Comcast has been a consistent supporter of the Society since the Lakewood History Museum’s opening in 2006.
“This contribution is extremely timely because of our efforts to design and install new displays in the museum,” Huber said. She explained that a new exhibit featuring the history of the Clover Park School District is now being prepared. A new museum layout will also include a new feature – an Artist’s Corner coordinated by the Lakewood Arts Commission. The new exhibits and layout will be accomplished during days the museum is normally closed. The Grand Opening is scheduled for Sat, March 19 with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 1 PM.
Businesses such as Comcast have recognized the importance of supporting the local community since the earliest days of our history. The Society is in the process of launching a revised business sponsorship program, making it easier for more small businesses to participate. A business membership has been reduced to $50 and sponsorships start at $100. “Please consider joining Comcast as a supporter of the Society and Museum,” the president added. Call 253-682-3480 for more information.
In addition to the museum located in the historic Lakewood Colonial Center, the Society also holds monthly programs. The free lecture-styleevents feature a different subject each month with speakers covering a specific subject. Additional details are available at the website: www.lakewoodhistorical.org
