The Exchange Club of Lake Highlands is an affiliate of the National Exchange Club. The original purpose of “Exchange” was to create grass roots organizations for the exchange of ideas leading to community involvement and enhancement. Locally, this objective has been refined over the years to specifically focus our efforts on community service to others, particularly support for our schools, public safety first responders, neighborhood non-profits and projects that improve the Lake Highlands community.
