The Keep Lakewood Beautiful Home & Business Awards

the Lakewood Public Library - Large Building Winner

Dedicated to promoting the general improvement of the environment in Lakewood since 1982, Keep Lakewood Beautiful announced the winners of its Annual Beautiful Home & Business Awards at a breakfast held on Wednesday, September 19th. The Beautiful Home & Business awards began in 1984 as a way to spotlight residents and businesses who beautify and maintain their property and encourage others to do the same. Each year, one home is selected in each elementary school district, and one business is chosen in each of three categories: Front Door/Back Door, Small Building, and Large Building. Past business winners include Sullivan's Irish Pub, Brennan's Floral Gift Shop, Three Birds Restaurant, First Federal of Lakewood, Lakewood Hospital, and Pier W, among many others.
