    Lane Findlay grew up in Davis county but has lived the past 17 years in western Weber county. He is married with four children. He graduated from Layton High School, served a church mission in Mississippi, and then returned home to attend Weber State University. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in criminal justice with a minor in psychology. While at Weber State, he also self-sponsored through the Utah Police Academy. He spent almost 15 years working in law enforcement, and recently served as a patrol lieutenant and public information officer (PIO) for the Weber County Sheriff's Office. In August 2016, he left the Sheriff's Office to take a position at the Weber School District as their Community Relations and Safety Specialist.

    Mr. Findlay will discuss an upcoming $97 million school bond for Weber School District which will appear on the election ballot in November. The bond, which will not increase the tax rate, will go to fund the construction of two new elementary schools, add a 12-classroom addition to Fremont High School, rebuild the aging Roy Junior High, and expand Weber Innovation High School. These projects will help address overcrowding issues in an ever-growing district. Superintendent Jeff Stephens will also attend and be available for questions.

    The man known as “Mr. United Way” in Northern Utah soon will leave his post to direct the Olene S. Walker Institute of Politics and Public Service at Weber State University.

    Bob Hunter, 75, announced this spring he would retire March 30, 2018, as president and CEO of the United Way of Northern Utah after 17 years at the helm. But the opportunity at WSU has moved up the date of his departure to Sept. 29 to take on his new role.

    Hunter’s resume includes prestigious awards and service as a former chairman of the Wasatch Front Regional Council of GovernmentsWeber County Commission chairman, Ogden City manager, Utah Transit Authority vice chairman, member of the National Association of Counties labor committee and a member of the Utah Health Systems Agency governing board.

    He was also a member of the Judicial Nominating Commission, a member of the Utah Energy Conservation and Development Council and was a co-founder of the Ogden Nature Center.

    Hunter was involved with the Walker Institute since it’s inception through his role as an adjunct professor. He said the Walker Institute, now 5 years old, still has room to grow to the level of other Utah university institutes.

Breakfast Exchange,
It's been a privilege it serve as president of the Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club the past year. I am so blessed to be a part of the national organization of Exchangites focused on "Unity in Service" in our own communities. Established May 16, 1972, the Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club celebrated our 45th anniversary this year!
We continued that long tradition of community service this past year receiving the "National Service Award Recognition." Service projects this year included our annual Ogden Christmas Village Hot Chocolate Booth which raised over $15,000 for our Shoes for Tots campaign. Big thanks to our sponsors and all the volunteers for helping raise funds for hundreds of pairs of shoes to be provided to children of need in Weber County. 
OBEx Club service projects also supported Prevent Child Abuse Utah by sponsoring this year's child abuse prevention programs at Horace Mann Elementary and the PCAU annual golf tournament fund-raiser. Members also helped distribute food to children as a "Bridging the Gap" partner with Catholic Community Services to provide weekend meals. 
Most recently Ogden Breakfast Exchange worked with the Ogden Noon Exchange to restore lighting to the Freedom Shrine on the Ogden River Parkway so that we can soon fly U.S. flag there again.
I'd like to thank this year's dedicated board members; my employer, Bruce Davis, dean of Continuing Education and Vice Provost at Weber State University; and our wonderful OBEx members for all the great support this past year. It's been an honor to work with all of you. 
I look forward to many more opportunities to serve our community together in the coming year under the great leadership of our new president, Joshua Haacke. 

Yours in service,
Kristie Nielsen
Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club 2016-17 President
