Here are a few photos to add from the Old House Fair. It was near the end of the show when hubby, Charlie, and I finally had some time to walk around and visit the exhibitors for some of our own home needs. (We both help put this show on and keep very busy during the show). See Jim O'bryan's photoblog for some good shots.

The Lakewood Police Department brought the first Bike Rodeo to Lakewood this year. Held at Madison Park, Saturday, June 12, 2010 from 10am to 1pm, the Rodeo is a safety and skill building biking program. The drills and courses were geared towards kids ages 6 to age 10. But the whole family could get a bike maintenance check, bike licenses, and popsicles.
Despite the economy, hundreds of people attended the Mayor’s Charity Ball at the Beck Center this past Saturday night to show their support for the Arts. There was delicious food provided by area restaurants, great art for the silent auction, live music to enjoy and who doesn’t love a party?
