“This event is a great opportunity to say thank-you to the Sheriff’s deputies and firefighters who work hard every day protecting and serving us, and to the community volunteers who have gone above and beyond in the cause of public safety in Lakewood,” said Mayor Todd Rogers.  “If you are able to, I hope you can join us at this wonderful and meaningful annual Lakewood event.”
