Welcome to your new Wild Apricot website
As I enter the second half of my term as President of the Lakeland Bar Association, I look forward to all the fun and engaging member events we still have on the horizon. First up, we have been given the opportunity to host a Meet and Greet event with the new Sixth District Court of Appeals at the Lakeland Country Club on November 29th.
Our spring speaker lineup includes: Superintendent of Schools, Frederick Heid, Polk County Clerk of Court and Comptroller, Stacy Butterfield; and Florida Bar President Gary S. Lesser. Additionally, we will have another great theme for our annual JA Appreciation luncheon with the Honorable Chief Judge Ellen Masters as our speaker. It is not all meetings though as our social committee has been working on a Saint Patrick’s Day BBQ and Bluegrass party (March 17th) planned for all of our members at Fresco’s Underground and our Annual Golf Tournament returns to Eaglebrooke this February 10th. There will be no December Meeting or February Meeting this year so we can focus on family time in December and not have the February meeting conflict with our Golf Tournament.
Our membership remains hovering around 200 members and I urge you to please get your dues sent in or paid online if you haven’t done so yet. The Aprons Dinner in October was another sold out event and enjoyed by all in attendance. As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any questions or comments related to the Bar and all we have planned for the rest of this years.
Wish you all a healthy and happy holiday season and looking forward to seeing you soon.
Kevin R. Albaum,
