The Civic Association serves the neighborhood by providing events, activities and services that bring the residents together and make Lakewood Forest a better place to live. Homeowners support the Civic Association through a voluntary $10 donation paid through the HOA or directly to the Civic Association. The board members and other volunteers use those funds judiciously for the betterment of the residents and the neighborhood as a whole. Every year, the Civic Association organizes and co-hosts numerous community events with the Lakewood Forest Fund (the HOA) as well as with the Lakewood Residents’ Club on occasion.
The all-volunteer Civic Association board meets monthly, generally on the first Tuesday of the month, at 7pm at the Lakewood Forest Fund office. The annual meeting and election of board officers takes place in October at the Lakewood Residents’ Club. All residents are welcome and encouraged to attend and participate as volunteers in our events and activities.
Civic Association’s Key Events and Activities include:
Spring Fling Eggstravaganza event
Annual Patriotic Fourth of July event
Annual National Night Out event for Lakewood Forest
Community-wide Garage Sales twice a year
Military Care Packages to our service members
Curb Number Painting every five years
Awarding Student Scholarships for graduating high school seniors
Supporting our kids’ elementary and middle schools with modest donations toward specific needs at those public schools
Supporting projects of candidates for the Boy Scout Eagle Scout Award and the Girl Scout Gold Award, as well as the Summer Day Camp Program for children living in Lakewood Forest
Other important actions include donating to the Lakewood Forest Garden Club in support of their Yard of the Month project and supporting the Lakewood Lightning swim team with small donations.
If you have an idea or suggestion for the Civic Association regarding new activities or projects you’d like to see, or ways to improve our current activities and projects, please let us know by coming to the annual meeting or by contacting one of the officers or directors.
2023 Annual Meeting
The Lakewood Forest Civic Association (LFCA) is holding its annual meeting on Tuesday, October 3, at 7 PM at the Lakewood Forest Fund Office. The address is 12415 Louetta Road, Cypress, 77429. All residents of Lakewood Forest are invited and encouraged to attend.
The LFCA is a benevolent organization that serves Lakewood Forest in many ways. We host community-oriented events like the annual Eggstravaganza egg hunt, a 4th of July event, a back to school clothing swap, and National Night Out. We support our community through donations to the Lakewood Lightning swim team, the Lakewood Forest Garden Club, our military service members, and the elementary and middle schools our children attend. We provide scholarships for graduating high school seniors. We increase the safety and beauty of our neighborhood by arranging curb number painting for every house in the subdivision. The LFCA is always looking for ways to bring our residents together and enhance the value of living in Lakewood Forest. Please note that the LFCA is separate and distinct from the Lakewood Forest Fund (HOA).
Our residents support the functioning of the LFCA through a yearly (optional) donation, usually made at the time of paying HOA annual fees. However, residents can join the LFCA now at the beginning of our fiscal year, which runs from September 1 through August 31.
At the annual meeting, paid-in-full members of the LFCA will elect officers and members of the board of directors. Any Lakewood Forest resident (homeowner or renter) who is a current member of the LFCA can run for a director position. The current slate of people who are running for officer and director positions include:
President: Jodi Cole
Vice President: open
Treasurer: Scott Johnson
Recording Secretary: Andrea Lightcap
Corresponding Secretary: Linda Musthaler
Director Position 1: Jamie MacKeen
Director Position 3: open
Director Position 5: open

All residents are welcome to attend the meeting. If you wish to vote in the election, please bring $10, cash or check, to pay your annual dues for the 2023/2024 fiscal year. Anyone who would like to run for an open director position can attend the annual meeting and be nominated to an open position by a member in good standing from the floor.
