Gresham Optimist Club to sponsor new JOOI Club

By Don Weston, President, Gresham Optimist Club   

Elections for a new JOOI club sponsored by The Optimist Club of Gresham will be held Wednesday, July 14th.

The JOOI club is made up of kids who attend the Police Activities League Club and will consist of middle school kids--a Junior Optimist Club.

Bill Wardy of the Sandy Optimist Club has made a podium complete with a full color JOOI Torch emblem which will be presented to the club after elections.

"We were surprised at how easy this was to get going," said Don Weston, Gresham Optimist President. "We already provide snacks on a regular basis for students there during the school year and now we hope to work closer with them on some of their projects and some of ours. An invite has already been extended to them for our Hamburgers, Hotdogs and Horses Barbeque on July 18th."

The Optimist Club of Gresham has also targeted the PAL club for their first Internet Safety presentation later in the year.
