Every three months, the Exchange Club of Lake Highlands presents awards to deserving first responders in the Lake Highlands area. Awards are made to police officers assigned to the Northeast Substation and to fire and rescue personnel at an area fire station. The recipients are nominated by commanding officers and are based on work ethic, seniority and character. Awards for February were made at a club breakfast on February 7. Shown from the left are Exchange Club member Raymond Fischer, Senior Corporal Steven Ulas from the Northeast Substation and Fire Rescue Officer Daniel Coleman, who is assigned to Fire Station 57 at Skillman St. and Audelia Rd. The Exchange Club meets each Friday morning at 7 a.m. at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Shoreview. Membership information can be found at — Don Lee
