    • The Club was pleased to recently receive a visit from Rachel,  a pure bred Golden Retriever trained to serve in the K-9 Comfort Dog Ministry launched in 2008 by Lutheran Church Charities.    Rachel, along with her handlers Jo Akers and Chuck Lowell demonstrated her various skills in interacting with people of all ages and circumstances.   She is based at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Charleston and is regularly invited to go to families, schools, nursing homes and other places where her calming and gentle nature can bring comfort to those who are suffering and in need.   The Exchange Club made a donation to this program in recognition of its positive effects on the community.
