LakewoodAlive schedules ‘Knowing Your Home’ exterior lighting workshop for Aug. 25

LAKEWOOD, Ohio — Over the last eight years, LakewoodAlive’s “Knowing Your Home” educational series has hosted dozens of free workshops helping homeowners with repairs and improvements.

During that time, the one subject matter that wasn’t addressed involved exterior lighting options. That’s about to change with the next “Knowing Your Home” event, taking place at 7 pm Aug. 25 at the Lakewood Public Library on Detroit Avenue.

“All of our workshops are special, but this one is a new topic,” Lakewood Alive Housing & Internal Operations Director Allison L. Urbanek said.
