Stoneham Rotary Welcomes Our Two New Members

The Rotary Club of Stoneham Membership Chair Craig Celli (Century 21 Celli) recently welcomed two new members to the Club – Stonehamites Justin Katz and Lucas Brown Esq.

Justin is a Stoneham native, attended Stoneham High School and was involved with the Greater Boston Stage Company, Stoneham TV, the Boy Scouts of America, town and travel soccer, and the Stoneham High School Drama Club. Justin received his Bachelor of Science from Fitchburg State University - graduating Cum Laude - with a major in professional film & video production and a minor in theatre. He then focused on directing and producing music-related film content, working with companies including Bose and Sony, with artists such as Yo-Yo Ma, Emanuel Ax, and Leonidas Kavakos, and served as in-house video producer at the New England Conservatory of Music.

Justin returned to Stoneham and in 2022 decided to shift focus and to establish Katz Cleaning, a residential cleaning business with an emphasis on using only safe and eco-friendly products and offering a service that is always approached with the utmost respect and care to its customers and their homes.


Lucas is a real estate Attorney for the law firm of Crowley & Cummings, LLC, specializing in both residential and commercial real estate conveyancing, acquisition, and development. Along with his practice and guiding numerous buyers, sellers, developers, and lenders through various real estate matters using his extensive experience in both contract negotiation and title resolution, he teaches continuing education courses for real estate agents throughout Massachusetts as well as guest speaking at various homebuyer seminars throughout the Greater Boston Area.

Lucas earned his Bachelor of Arts degree from Bucknell University, and Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School. During his time in law school, he had the opportunity to clerk for the Honorable Alexander H. Sands, III (Ret.) at the Massachusetts Land Court where he gained invaluable experience in the areas of zoning and land use law.

A current resident of Stoneham, MA, Lucas has served as an Associate Member of the Stoneham Board of Appeals and is a current member of the Stoneham Chamber of Commerce.

“We are so excited to welcome Justin and Lucas to our club,” noted Mr. Celli in his introduction of the two new members. “They each bring talents and fresh perspectives that will help our club thrive. We look forward to working with them.  We hope that this trend will grow stronger this year and that we will welcome even more individuals who are looking to make a difference in our community through the fellowship of Rotary.”
