Our proud community of Lawson is celebrating 150 years in 2021. To mark this special occasion, a committee has formed to plan year-long activities including a special celebration at the annual Lawson Picnic which will take place on July 8-11.

We are honored to have Lawson Assembly of God church as our presenting sponsor for the Lawson 150 and Lawson Picnic. We appreciate their generous support of our year-long efforts!

In order to fund this project, the committee, under the leadership of the City of Lawson, is seeking sponsorships to help offset the costs associated with leading an effort of this magnitude. All funds raised will go towards beautification projects around town, as well as the celebration at the Lawson Picnic. Click here for downloadable sponsorship form.  
One of the biggest initiatives of the Lawson 150 committee is encouraging 150 community service projects to take place in 2021. Projects can range from picking up trash, planting flowers, painting benches to larger scale projects. Groups interested in volunteering or hosting a service project are encouraged to coordinate with the Lawson 150 project coordinator at City Hall. The committee is seeking many volunteers to help with both the year-long activities and the planning and implementation of events during the Lawson Picnic. Whether you can help for a couple of hours or can take the lead on one of the committees, we greatly appreciate your time in helping Lawson to celebrate our 150th anniversary!
