39 Years supporting Lakewood programs
The Lakewood Center Associates (LCA) is a group of volunteers who serve as the auxiliary arm of the Lakewood Center for the Arts. The group was founded in 1984 to help raise funds to support the arts education and theatre programs at the Center. The Associates have raised well over a million dollars, which have been used for building renovations, Warner Hall, landscaping, the endowment fund, arts education, play sponsorships, and a variety of other projects vital to Lakewood.
LCA members meet monthly from September through May to conduct business and hear speakers on topics of interest. Members also volunteer to work in Re-Runs, a thrift and consignment shop located on the main floor of Lakewood Center. The shop is filled with an ever-changing inventory of furniture, artwork, jewelry, and household items.
Re-Runs is open Monday through Saturday from 11 AM until 3 PM, and an hour before plays on Thursday nights. It is currently open by appointment via email: Lakewood.LCA@gmail.com. Items are accepted for consignment by appointment only on Tuesdays, 11-1:30. Please call the shop to make an appointment 503-636-8377. Minimum value of $30.
Donations in good condition gratefully accepted anytime shop is open.
