LCC Meeting / Awards and More!

The Lakeway Civic Corporation (LCC) held their annual meeting and dinner at the Activity Center Tuesday evening.  The LCC has been instrumental in many improvements over the years.  They were formed by the original developer and have been funded over the years by a fee charged on all lots sold.  We thank them for all the wonderful projects they have helped fund.

Some of their many contributions include Heritage Center Mini Movies recording the history of Lakeway and update of the Bark Park.  LCC continues to fund projects like Breakfast with Santa,  "Meet the Candidates" forums, the Blood Donor Program and the Service League.  Over the years they have funded hundreds of thousands of dollars for the betterment of Lakeway.

President Jane Benesutti Chaired the meeting that started with the Pledge of Allegiance and an invocation given by Senior Pastor Larry Coulter of the Lakeway Church. 

Following the business meeting and a wonderful dinner provided by Pok-E-Joe's BBQ, the LCC awarded outstanding citizens several awards.  They are as follows:

Meritorious Service Award - Awarded to Ann Neighbors for her unending community involvement for many years.  Presented by Board Member Dave Benson.

Meritorious Service Award - Awarded to Daughters of the American Revolution, Lohmans Ford Chapter.  The award recognized the Chapter's continued support of the community and area Veterans.  Award was accepted 
President Paula Myer and presented by LCC Board Member Rick Zehrer.  Here is a link to their web site.

And the final and most prestigious award, Outstanding Citizen of the Year was presented to Jim Powell by Board Member Lana Brown for his significant work for not only Lakeway Citizens but many others that have suffered significant harm and damage due to unexpected events including floods, fires and other disasters.  Not only does he head up and manage several area charities but he also is a past Council Member and currently serves on the Lakeway Board of Adjustment.  It is a great honor to be considered one of his many friends!

All five of the former Mayors were present and many other city volunteers filled the event.  Current Mayor Sandy Cox, and Council Members Keith Trecker and Steve Smith were also present.  If you see one of the recipients, please join me in congratulating them for their service to the community!
There are tears all over the area, many folks are going through serious withdrawal as you read this post.  Chick-fil-A has closed
 for remodeling for about 6 weeks.  Instead of a line of cars waiting for their orders, there are dumpsters and material containers.  Have faith, they shall return!
