The Lakewood United group meets at 7 AM every Thursday at Burs Restaurant, which is located at 6151 Steilacoom Boulevard SW in Lakewood. The events for the next four weeks are as follows:
- May 7, 2009 – The Puget Sound Economy In the First Quarter of 2009 – Is the Trend Continuing? – Dan Voelpel, Tacoma News Tribune (Maury Peerenboom – MC)
- May 14, 2009 – Adventures in Lakewood History: The New Civil War and Other Highlights – Walter Neary, Public Relations Director, Comcast (Andrea Litton – MC)

Our dues are only $10 per year which equates to less than 20 cents every Thursday. This is thanks to our volunteer board. Incidentally, our guest speakers only charge us the cost of a breakfast.
If you wish to make suggestions for future topics or speakers, please contact any of our board members, Sue Boguszewski, Hugh Hedges, John Huber, Kris Kauffman, Evelyn Kelly, Andrea Litton, Mary Ann Miller, Kristi Roy, Mike Stevenson or Robin Rego.
