Also, Maggie Seibel has become club Vice President and begins a two year term on October 1st. Thank you for accepting this important position Maggie!
- Volunteering builds community! There is much work to be done; please consider joining one of the two LUFC committees we have made priority of establishing this upcoming year - the Competitive Play Committee and the Communications/PR Committee. LOOK AT THE DIB PAGE!!
As we go from season to season, it is vital to evaluate and, when necessary, adjust the way LUFC operates. One significant way we do this is by listening to what we members have to say through a member survey. Responses are taken seriously by the board and we value them very much. Below are this year's results. If you have difficulty opening the file and want the results emailed to you, please email Tom Hallberg who will send one out to you. The board wishes to thank Joe Lefto for creating and mailing the survey and compiling the results.

~~LUFC Members!!! Who do you know who has the ability and possible desire to gift Lakes United $5000 a year of appreciated stock?
Parents!!! Who do you know that is PERHAPS A GRANDPARENT to your beautiful soccer star(s) who isn't spending the distribution they are required to take from their Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) once they have turned 70 1/2?
Please help these special people get in touch with the club leadership. We are actively seeking TWENTY donors, both loud ones and anonymous ones, to pledge a gift of at least $5000 per year indefinitely in the form of appreciated investments or cash. These gifts should be tax deductible, but one ought to check with their tax advisor to be sure it would be for them.
These annual funds will be used in three primary ways: new soccer facility/complex, additional staff, and club operations.
