What's up with our CPA Books?

Not to worry! A number of great books were collected by Lorraine Coots, 2009-2010 Membership Retention Chair. Lorraine's thoughts were to have the books judged by individuals outside the Optimist Club organization.

What a great thought! As I write this, the books are being reviewed and critiqued by our sponsors, stakeholders, and community members-at-large to determine their impact on our communities and their potential for engaging others in our cause.

Lorraine will provide the winners to Optimist International as they are due and she will report the outcome to the PNW District at the Second Quarter District Meeting in the Seattle area on January 21-22, 2011.  Many thanks to Lorraine for introducing a new approach.

Immediate Past Governor Linda Jackson will also announce Honor and Distinguished Club awards at that time. I hope you join us!  Registration details should be available soon.
