In case you missed it, here's what happened last week in Lakeland!
Members of the Florida Municipal Electric Association (FMEA) last week elected Joel Ivy, general manager for Lakeland Electric, as president of the organization’s board of directors.
The City of Lakeland Parks & Recreation Department's summer enrichment program, "Camp Blast," collected more than 3500 items for the Senior Orphans of Polk County!
Camp Blast is a day camp operated out of five Polk County Public Schools and the Simpson Park Community center providing a fun supervised environment for elementary school-aged children in our community. Participants spend their summer skating, swimming, and engaging with their fellow campers.
Campers also participated in the end of year showcase and talent show at the RP Funding Center on Thursday, July 26th! View/download your copy when it's available on our Vimeo Channel.
