On hand for the official ribbon cutting were Dan Griffin, CEO of Lawrence’s Fish & Shrimp, Mr. Kurt Schweig, president, and Ms. Kelley Whalen, marketing director. Joining them were several Village of Olympia Fields officials and community members, including President Sterling Burke; Economic Development Commission co-chair Trinette Britt-Johnson and Commissioners George Chandler and Phillip Paige; and Trustees Desiree Watkins and Sandra Finley. Also in attendance were Mr. Eddie Finley and Ms. Naomi Perkins. Attendees sampled a variety of offerings from Lawrence’s extensive seafood menu. President Burke proclaimed September 15 as Lawrence’s Fish & Shrimp Day and, in conjunction with the Village’s Economic Development Commission, presented the restaurant with a welcome gift  that included a framed business license, a $250 check and an Olympia Fieldsopoly (Monopoly) game.
