Lake Alfred - Lt. Gerald Dempsey presented Lake Alfred Citizen James Walton with a Citizen Recognition Award during the City of Lake Alfred Commission Meeting on September 12, 2019. “I believe that there are about a thousand different ways to keep a beautiful jewel, like the City of Lake Alfred, the Beautiful and Special Place that it is to so many of us who consider it to be an absolute Sacred duty.
