Join us for Exciting Events this Spring!

Spring is upon us and with it, activity is on the rise at Community Connections! March kicked off with some fabulous community events and we’re excited to continue the momentum into April. Check out what we’ve been into the last month!

The Lakewood Sunrise Optimist Club is named that for a reason! A 7 a.m. morning meeting might seem like a daunting task for some, but for us, it was an opportunity to spread joy, positivity, and a little bit of history. In our recent engagement with the club, we shared insights into the Guardians of Historic Lakewood Program, a project close to our hearts.

International Optimist clubs, rooted in the practice of fostering community spirit and service, have been a beacon of hope for decades. Our dialogue with the Lakewood Sunrise Optimist club centered around introducing the Guardians of Historic Lakewood Program, a collaborative effort with the Lakewood Historical Society. Through this initiative, we encourage individuals to become community scientists, supplying them with the knowledge to identify and preserve artifacts discovered in their own neighborhoods.

If you don’t live in Lakewood, no problem! The Lakewood Historical Society is an advocate of stewardship and welcomes collaboration with fellow historical societies. Reach out to them to explore how you can bring this enriching program to your community.

Excitement is building as we gear up for our upcoming Archaeology Workshop on Monday, April 29th. This workshop is open to all and will help you uncover the mysteries of identifying artifacts. Once you identify your own artifacts, you can submit your information to Lakewood Historical Society to help us preserve our history as a community. You can be an active part of preserving your city’s history. How cool is that?!

Membership with the Lakewood Historical Society grants access to exclusive perks, including a free tote bag at the workshop and access to the archaeology guidebook - specifically designed for the Lakewood Historical Society by CCLLC thanks to funding provided by History Colorado.

Membership for an individual is only $20 and $30 for the household! What are you waiting for? 😊 Join us as we dig into the fascinating world of archaeology and uncover the stories buried beneath our feet.
