Wifi arrives at the Lodge

Now that the Lodge (formerly known as the Brook House) is finally ready to be used for Lakewood Community Housing, we've also made a big leap and have installed wireless internet service there!  

With the ability to sleep eight folks at a time it is a community within itself, but which winter projects get completed will tell if it might just be home to the new LCH community kitchen space, or if that will be next door at the Gardener's cottage as currently planned.  An answer to this question will come in time for the 2024 auditions. For now, we still have two more shows, a prom and an awards banquet left to this season; so if you need a LCH place to stay, let us know!

All LCH stays on Olive Street at the Lodge, Cabbage, or Corner are by donation for the rest of the 2023 season  - reservations required.

a futon for the Cabbage!

There are moments when things just suddenly work out. Our little Cabbage now has a futon! A bit of coziness and comfort donated by a friend, and two other Olive Street community members volunteered to carry it up that steep steep hill!  

The final piece of the puzzle, now once again the Cabbage is made available according to the 'old rules'... and if you don't know what this means, just ask!  All are welcome here!

morning tea time

Taking a moment... for a cup of morning tea overlooking some of the gardens at the Gardeners Cottage

little green


Not quite the bounty of community grown veggies I had hoped to have been growing on Olive Street this season... but still a wonderful thing to see! Tomatoes, some beefstake and some cherry, peppers, broccoli that may or may not produce... blueberries are coming in plentiful as always... it's something, it's a start!

More volunteers are requested for next year to make our gardens grow.

Tucker Atwood presents his own play, "Waiting in the Wings" at Lakewood Theater for three days at the end of the season! Performing Friday, September 29th  & Saturday, September 30th at 8pm, and  Sunday, October 1st at 4pm

The description is as follows: While the ghosts of a recently deceased actor and a long-forgotten usher roam through the cluttered backstage of the theater they each called home, a group of living thespians make an unexpected connection between their worlds. As the season progresses, all souls become deeply intertwined in the complicated web of life, death, and summer theater.
