Our Team

Profiles of our LEADERS

Lakeland is a 501c3 Non-profit organization that is supported almost entirely by volunteers.  The management of business is performed by our Board of Directors.  This hard working and devoted group of volunteers are often the first to arrive and the last to leave.  The Daily Operational Management is performed by a small, part time,  hard working Staff and a large group of Volunteers who have taken ownership of specific functions.  Over the decades that Lakeland has been in business, this group has changed many times over but the determination has remained everlasting.  Feel free to reach out to our board and let them know what you think about Lakeland and anything we can do to make your time with us more special.
