It's a new Optimist Club year!

Greetings from Governor Larry in the start of our new year and best wishes to all.

Thanks to Governor Bill and all his team members for a superb job in leading our district this past year. As we all know, it was a challenge, but we have come through in fine fashion and Bill, you are commended for a splendid job, well done. I have been so proud to have served as your governor-elect this past year.

I ask you, Optimist Club members and officers, to join us in the coming year as we look beyond the past and the present and embrace our international charge “For the future.”

Next up for the PNW District is our 1st Quarter gathering in Hood River, Oregon October 19-20. Are you registered yet? If not, check out the website or give me a call; I’d love to see each and every one of you at this important meeting. You will definitely enjoy and learn more about Planned Giving; how each of us can plan ahead and support our wonderful organization or other group of your choice. In addition to our Executive Board meeting, training and district meeting, there will be fun time!

There are some plans for sturgeon fishing, talent show featuring our own members and you will hear from some people answering this burning question, “Can you find love, at an Optimist meeting?” Furthermore, this weekend is the annual “Harvest Festival” in Hood River and is on the waterfront, near the Best Western. You will want to spend some time at this great activity.

What fun; learn, share, grow in Optimism and renew friendships with our fellow Optimists. So plan now to attend; I look forward to seeing you. Encourage your fellow club members to attend as it’s always, “More Fun with Everyone!”

~Governor Larry
