Cultivating the heart of Lakewood!

Connecting Our Community!

Alameda Connects Monthly eBlast is here to inform our businesses and residents about our thriving community in the heart of Lakewood.  
 


A MESSAGE FROM 

TOM QUINN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Once again the calendar brings us to April and Earth Day!  Alameda Connects and the Alameda Corridor BID continue this year as proud sponsors of the City of Lakewood’s Earth Day Celebration at the Lakewood Heritage Center scheduled for Saturday April 27.  This annual event is a celebration of our planet and ongoing commitment to sustainability in our community.  The free, family-friendly event includes live music, fitness activities, kid’s crafts, interactive art, good eats and a beer garden.  Stop by our booth and say hi to Kate! 
 
The idea for a national day to focus on the environment came to Earth Day founder Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson, after witnessing the ravages of the 1969 massive oil spill in Santa Barbara, California.  On April 22, 1970, twenty million Americans took to the streets, parks, and auditoriums to demonstrate for a healthy, sustainable environment in massive coast-to-coast rallies.  Earth Day 1970 achieved a rare political alignment, enlisting support from Republicans and Democrats and people from all walks of life. 
While it’s important to celebrate Earth Day, meaningful progress on sustainability will come when we celebrate every day as Earth Day in our personal and business choices.  Follow-up Earth day by attending our Business Sustainability Summit on Friday May 17 at mindSpark!  See below for details.
