SEPTEMBER 2017 MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT & CEO
Share |

The 31st class of LOK kicked off at St. Crispin’s in Seminole on August 30th. The uncertainty and awkwardness of that first meeting was quickly replaced with laughter and comradery.

Our local hosts, Lana Reynolds (Class XXVII), Marci Donaho (Class XII), Danna Riffle and Mike Mariano, created a welcoming, and yummy, environment for the class members. That evening and the next two days, gave this year’s 50 members the opportunity to build their teamwork, problem solving and leadership skills. In keeping with tradition, classmates had to share rooms and most of them did manage to survive an airplane crash. Like the 30 classes before them, this class has much to look forward to and it is truly an honor to travel with them in the coming year.

It takes so many LOK alumni and community volunteers to bring these programs together. Thank you to our opening retreat speakers and sponsors:
