The LakewoodAlive Laskey Service Award was first created in 2009 to honor Tim Laskey, a founding member of LakewoodAlive and Lakewood Community Progress Inc., to reflect his incredible volunteer dedication to the community.  “Tim has established a legacy of volunteer service in Lakewood and this award allows us to honor those who follow in his footsteps in terms of professionalism and devotion to civic interests.” said Mary Sue McGorry, former LakewoodAlive Board Member and Laskey Service Award committee member.
LakewoodAlive has been the fortunate recipient of the professional talent, knowledge and experience of Ms. Moll, Mr. Sicha and Ms. Rudge.  “As participants on the Downtown Lakewood Design Committee since its inception in 2005, Ms. Moll, Mr. Sicha and Ms. Rudge have played essential roles in the development of the Detroit Avenue Streetscape Plan, the Downtown Lakewood Signage & Wayfinding Plan, and the creation of Design Principles for Commercial Districts, all of which have been adopted by the City of Lakewood”, stated Jenni Baker, LakewoodAlive Board President.

All three recipients are members of the city’s Heritage Advisory Board, providing research, advice and technical assistance on both residential and commercial projects.  They are also members of the Lakewood Historical Society, serving integral roles in the biennial Come Home to Lakewood house tour and in salvage operations conducted by the society.
