On February 2, seven members of Lakewood Republican Women (LRW) attended the American Lake VA Community Living Center’s afternoon Sweethearts Dance.
This fun social event featured the local 18-piece big band, “Swing Fever”, which for two hours played live music from the 1930s and 1940s that the veteran residents, their guests, VA staff and even LRW members danced to.
The LRW ladies helped serve snacks and beverages, cleaned up, talked to and took pictures for the Veterans and their guests during the dance. This ‘sweet’ event was a great way to honor our Veterans and their families. It is a great way for the Lakewood Republican Women to give back to their veterans, their families, the VA and the community.
