The Club achieved Distinguished Club status with the addition of 20 new members and 3 Friends of Optimist. Weekly meeting attendance continued robust, with frequent calls for additional tables/chairs. The Sports Fiesta Fundraising Campaign, led by Carla Fargo, and the Sports Fiesta Event, with Don Crawford at the helm, were highly successful. Total Donations & Event Income -$45K. Our Club granted funds to a wide range of youth activities, with significant emphasis on academic & athletic programs within the Coronado Unified School District. We stayed within budget. The CHS Octagon Club and CMS Jr. Optimist Club continued to flourish. A major highlight was our sponsorship of the Miracle League—Baseball for the Disabled. With Mark Blumenthal in the lead, Green Field at Village Elementary became the South Bay home for Miracle League. Four CHS Seniors were each awarded a $2,000 scholarship.
