OGDEN -- The Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club had its annual installation dinner last week and introduced the 2012-13 president, Chris Zimmerman.
In addition to being an Exchange member for the past four years, Zimmerman brings with him a long history of community involvement, including 29 years in law enforcement with the Ogden and Roy police departments.
Zimmerman has been a board member and president of many local organizations over the years and currently serves as a member of the Prevent Child Abuse Utah Advisory Board and with the Weber School District Foundation as its executive director.
Zimmerman succeeds past President Val Anderson, who demonstrated his leadership skills in the way of a record fundraiser year, according to a news release, raising more than $20,000 for the club's core project, Shoes for Tots.
For more than 20 years, the Ogden Breakfast Exchange Club's Shoes for Tots program has been providing needy schoolchildren in the Ogden/Weber area with free gift certificates to Payless Shoe Stores and has put shoes on the feet of more than 1,200 kids this year alone.
