The OAM on the Move

DougDoug Kollar launched his career as an Optician in 1982 and has been working in the optical field ever since. A heart of gold family man, he holds a directorship position on the Opticians Association of Michigan (OAM) board and is very active in the community of Lapeer, Michigan. Currently the Lapeer organization is selling raffle tickets, proceeds to help disadvantaged families in their time of need.

When Doug’s not busy at work, helping on the OAM board or helping out in his community, you can find him on Beaver Island, where he plans to retire. While on Beaver Island he does not just relax. He also helps out with providing glasses to those in need of vision care on the Island. Thank you, Doug, for putting your heart and soul into your profession and your community.
