More third quarter news


News from the third quarter meeting continues to dribble in to the PNW District Blog for publication. Shown in the picture from Judith Hillend are some of the CCDHH contestants. No word yet on who our winners were in either oratorical contest. 

Governor-elect Larry Blackburn shares some of his thoughts here:

Optimists from throughout the district descended on Newport, Oregon last weekend for the third quarter gathering. Highlights of the weekend were the finals for the District Oratorical Contest as well as the Deaf and Hard of Hearing. All spectators came away from the contests with a renewed appreciation for our youth. District business included electing the following lieutenant governors: Fran Bounds, zone 6; Boyd Yaden, zone 5; Dick Disney, zone 3. Other lieutenant governors will be announced later.

Governor Bill French and secretary-treasurer Mary White are commended for their many efforts in making this meeting so successful and memorable. I have an extra video copy of the oratorical contests and any club that would like to play it for a club program is certainly welcome by emailing me at larryblackburn@cableone.net.

Our next get together will be in Canada, August 16-18. This will be the annual convention for the Pacific Northwest District and every Optimist is invited and encouraged to attend. Be sure to have a valid passport in your possession.
