Michael Estwanik, President

Louis J. Brodnik, Vice President

Lou was born in Cleveland. He grew up on the west side and crossed the great divide to Cleveland Heights where he now resides near Cain Park Theatre. A graduate of Kent State University and Cleveland-Marshall College of Law, he practiced law for Cuyahoga County for 31 years. After retirement he pursued creative interests, learning to read music and singing tenor in his church choir. Other interests include geneology, researching and writing local history and poetry. He tutors elementary school children in Cleveland and volunteers at a food bank in East Cleveland. Having had a lifelong interest in boating, Lou is also a member of CABBS, the Cleveland Area Boat Builders Society located near Merwin’s Wharf on the Cuyahoga. He edits their online newsletter and promotes the enjoyment of our city’s river as a great asset and not the fore mentioned divide of Cleveland lore. He is married to Jane and they have two sons in Norfolk, Va. and Taos, New Mexico.
