Greetings From President Chuck

Dear Rotarians and Friends,
 
Good weather has continued to smile upon us.  I'm hopeful everyone is taking advantage and getting their outdoor activity fix.  No doubt we will pay the price this winter, so make the best of it.  Our Interact and Exchange students at Lakewood HS have been busy.  This weekend they had a party at Kirsten Senger's home and they are busy getting the Shelter Box display set up at LHS.  They are selling painted rocks and challenging other groups to get involved to raise money to buy a Shelter Box for hurricane relief.
 
Our guest speaker last week was Bryce Sylvester, the Director of Planning and Development for Lakewood.  He did a great job presenting everything happening in Lakewood.  Our guest speaker this week is a good friend of Dave Schaeffer, Andi Udris.  Andi wears many hats, Economic Dev. Director for Brooklyn, CSU Professor and a co-owner of the Hofbrauhaus downtown.  On the horizon we have:
