Optimist District Convention a Success

Optimists gathered for the PNW District Convention in Eugene, OR. This marked the fiftieth anniversary of the Pacific Northwest District with the current boundaries. OPtimist International President Designate Theo Golding was the guest of honor. Highlights included a curling exhibition at the Lane County Fair led by Al Kersey, a fabulous fiesta party hosted by Sue Broadwater and the Roseburg Optimist Club and the Governor's Banquet where Steve Andersen and his team were installed and made ready to assume their duties on October 1. Soon-to-be the Immediate Past Governor, Gay Enyeart encouraged those present to continue leading all districts in Optimist International by adding more members and building new clubs. Peter Smith, Coquitlam Optimist Club was elected governor-elect for the coming year. Adele Heinrich, N. Kitsap County Optimist Club and Rocky Jackson, Jerome Optimist Club were honored with the Roy Proctor Lifetime Achievement Award for their outstanding District Service.
