Our new president, Don Crawford, has jumped into the presidency a few weeks early.  President Crawford always wanting to share a bit of history…told of our Optimist Creed was originally a poem penned in 1912 and then taken on as the creed in 1922.

We kicked off the meeting with a new member swearing in. Tom Catlin, sponsored by Past Pres. Mark Blumenthal (right) and inducted by Past Pres. Irish Flynn (left).

Our new president also stepped in and was our guest speaker again to bring us up to date on the SEALS during the Vietnam War.
