The U.S. Open (Golf) is coming. Members of the local “U.S. Open Task Force” will be at the May 29, 2014 meeting of Lakewood United to brief the group of status, what to expect and ways to be involved. The Lakewood United group meets at 7 AM every Thursday at Burs Restaurant, which is located at 6151 Steilacoom Boulevard SW in Lakewood. The next two programs after this week are:
- June 5, 2014 – Lakewood’s Municipal Court – Judge Grant Blinn
- June 12, 2014 – An Amphitheatre for Ft. Steilacoom?? Background, Pros and Cons
Last week’s program on Lakes of Lakewood Revisited with Don Russell & Greg Vigoren was expertly moderated and co-presented by Kris covering the creation of our local kettle lakes during the Ice Age, bringing us up to date on the eutrophic changes which are rapidly evolving in Waughop Lake at Fort Steilacoom Park, with refreshing unrehearsed comments from the audience!
The dues for our fiscal year, which started on July 1, 2013, are $20 per year. Lakewood United operates with a volunteer board and 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.
Burs Restaurant does not charge us a room fee. Hence, please ensure that you at least order a beverage if you attend the meeting and remember to leave a gratuity. If you wish to make suggestions for future topics or speakers, please contact any of our board members: Marie Barth, John Huber, Kris Kauffman, Evelyn Kelly, Karen Lebeter, Pamela Maddess, Teresa Nye, Steve Smith, or Herb Stumpf.
