The next meeting of Lakewood United: July 23, 2015 “Have You Been Scammed Lately?” – Savannah Kimball, BBB WA Community Outreach Manager (Pamela – MC)
The Lakewood United group meets at 7 AM every Thursday at Burs Restaurant, which is located at 6151 Steilacoom Boulevard SW in Lakewood. Upcoming topics are as follows:
August 6, 2015 “Family Renewal Shelter” – Keith Galbraith, Executive Director (Herb – MC)
Summary of the July 16, 2015, program, “Interface with Law and Justice concerning care of the mentally ill in Washington State” – Steve O’Ban, Washington State Senator (Kris – MC):
“Senator O’Ban did an excellent review of this Legislature’s ACTION in the area of Mental Health – an area often overlooked and underfunded. As Chair of the Senate’s Committee that covers this subject he is in a good position to speak to this subject and emphasized the bi-partisan effort involved. The Legislature adjourned less than a week ago during its third Special Session. Legacy came up and it was mentioned that Senator Shirley Winsley was one of the founders of Lakewood United some 45 years ago; then we remembered Senators Ted Haley and Mike Carrell as part of Senator O’Ban’s legacy.”
