Our Treasurer, Sue Boguszewski, has resigned from our governing Board due to a work schedule conflict. We appreciate her years of dedicated service to Lakewood United and wish her the very best in her new job. We thank John Huber, our new Treasurer, for agreeing to serve in that position after being elected by the Board.
The dues for our fiscal year, which started on July 1, 2010, are $20 per year which equates to less than 40 cents every Thursday. This is thanks to our volunteer board. Incidentally, our guest speakers only charge us the cost of a breakfast. You can pay your dues by mail to: Lakewood United, P.O. Box 99785, Lakewood, WA 98496 or directly to our Treasurer, John Huber, if he is present at the weekly Thursday morning events.
There is a minimum charge at Burs Restaurant. Please ensure that you at least order a beverage if you attend the meeting.
If you wish to make suggestions for future topics or speakers, please contact any of our board members, Ernest Heller, John Huber, Kris Kauffman, Evelyn Kelly, Andrea Litton, Pamela Maddess, Mary Ann Miller, Kristi Roy, Mike Stevenson or Robin Rego.
