The Lake Forest Park Civic Club, with shimmering Lake Washington as the backdrop, was the setting Wednesday for LFP Rotary’s Changing of the Guard, an annual dinner event celebrating the past year and the installation of new club leaders.
80 members and guests gathered to recognize and thank last year’s officers, service area chairs and other board members, and the members who will serve in those positions for the 2016-17 year.
A high point of the evening was District 5030 Assistant Governor Marella Alejandro’s recognition of the club’s membership growth over the last several years. Lake Forest Park Rotary will commemorate its 30th Anniversary in September, in conjunction with the LFP Farmers Market and the Police Department Salmon Bake.
