The dues for our fiscal year, which started on July 1, 2015, 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, Sue Boguszewski, Bryan Christensen, Gil Conforti, John Huber, Kris Kauffman, Karen Lebeter, Pamela Maddess, Steve Smith, or Herb Stumpf.
Unfortunately, during the setup for last week’s Military Affairs Council of the Lakewood Chamber of Commerce, the HDMI cable was broken at its attachment inside Burs’ Smart TV. So, for the time being, we will have to use the old projector attached to the laptop computer instead of the Smart TV to project PowerPoints. I’ve made a request through the Burs staff to Tim Tveten the owner to give us access again to the Smart TV to reattach a replacement HDMI cable. Update: Burs bought a very heavy-duty HDMI cable, and hopefully, it can be reattached to the SmartTV soon!
