PNW Optimists welcome the new year

October 1 marks the beginning of new year for Optimist International and the Pacific Northwest District. Clubs throughout North America, the Caribbean and abroad change presidents, districts change governors and the organization recognizes a new International President.

Here in the Pacific Northwest, duties were entrusted to 2008-2009 Governor Peter Smith. Governor Peter has chosen the theme "Dream Makers" to express the behind the scenes roles played by so many Optimists for the children they serve and for the special people in our lives that help us reach for our goals. Peter's personal dream maker is his VIP Annette Smith.

Our congratulations to all officers who proudly accepted their positions and a special thanks to those retiring from their posts, especially Steve Andersen, 2007-2008 Governor. We appreciate the hard work you've done and the great work yet to come. Thank you for your service to your community and your fellow Optimists.
