THE EXCHANGE CLUB OF GRAYSLAKE TURNS 40!
The Exchange Club of Grayslake was chartered on August 20, 1971. This year we are celebrating our 40th anniversary in Grayslake and there are currently 69 members.
At the time the Club was formed it was only for men. The wives of the Exchange members decided to form their own Club and they are known as the “Exchangettes” and they still exist today as one of the last remaining all women Exchange groups in the country.
Some of the early Grayslake Members were:
Verne Buland, Robert W. Kautz, George Vernony, Noel L. Stirrat, David M. DeHart, Donald Huckstadt, Leo O. Johnson, Charles A. McBride, Jr., William B. Denniston, Bernie J. Leonard, James N. Geary, Terrence M. Hough, James S. Winters, Donald H. Brown, Frederick Hedblom and James E. Seitz.
