Rotary of Lake Wylie will meet at Noon with updates from President, Greg Forrest, and a member spotlight from Dr. Yves-Renée Jennings, Ph.D.
We hope you can join us tomorrow for our regular meeting at the CSD YMCA at noon, and we’re very excited about our guest speaker, Lance Brockmeier, from Journey Community Caf’e!
Speaker Biography: Lance has been in the greater Charlotte area since 1996 when his work with Sea-Land Service brought him from Dallas, TX. Lance has been in the international logistics industry since 1979 in Savannah, GA, Atlanta, GA, Dallas, and then Charlotte. In late 1999, Lance joined Maersk when that company purchased Sea-Land Service.
Lance graduated from the University of Virginia in 1975, and from Queens University or Charlotte in 2003 with an MBA.
Lance retired from Maersk in April 2016, returning to work with Maersk part-time in January 2019.
Lance is currently the CEO of The Community Cafe which serves about 1,900 meals weekly from two dine-in cafes, three distribution and delivery sites and a food truck. The Community Cafe was started in 2010 by Don Murfin and Kenny Ashley, Pastor of The Journey Church in Lake Wylie. In September 2022, Lance and Constantine Mitsopoulos took over leadership of the all-volunteer Cafe when Don Murfin retired after a long tenure. The Cafe’s mission is to prepare and serve food to those in our community who need it, no questions asked, under our motto, “Neighbors Helping Neighbors So All May Eat.”
