GOOD MORNING OPTIMISTS
As members trickled in this morning, President Rob welcomed everyone and led us in prayer. Right on cue, Lyman Green led us in the pledge. Rob read a great quote from Hugh Downs. By my count we had 20 in attendance. “A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.”
NOTE – President’s Email is email@example.com
1. Board of Directors will meet this Monday, October 19th at Coronado Golf Course boardroom. 2020-21 Budget will be discussed. Contact Rob if you would like to speak to the Board.

Shannon Patel bragged on Charlie Ahern, who is now a Coronado Hospital Foundation Board member. He will join her on the membership committee.
Cynthia Kosciuczyk wanted to recognize and thank Kirk Henry for the many times he shuttled her to and from meetings when she was without a car. Would we expect any less of Kirk? I think not.

PRESIDENT ROB’S WEEKLY TRICIA QUESTION
Who was the Coronado mayor BEFORE Mayor Dorman (Dennis Dorman’s dad) and who was the Mayor after Mayor Dorman?
Let’s review how to play: At our weekly 7:30 ZOOM meeting, 2020-2021 President Rob will announce a topic and ask a trivia question. The trivia question will also go on the Green Sheet. You earn points three ways:
(a) 1 point for answering within four hours of the meeting;
(b) 1 point for answering within 24 hours of the Green Sheet being posted;
(c) 1 point for getting the correct answer. So, max 3 points per question.
Participation is optional but strongly encouraged. In the words of our President Rob “Barker” … come on down. All questions go to Rob at above email.
To answer: send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or send a text message to 619.347.1559. Please do not blurt out the answer at the meeting (give everyone a chance at fair play). At the end of the month, I will count up points. If you have the most points, you get a gift card. If there is a tie, a random draw will determine the winner.
I will try to keep track of total points throughout the year for end-of-the-year prizes, but no promises there.Topics will include OCC, Coronado, movies, sports, history and entertainment. You can submit suggestions for topics and questions directly to Rob.
NEXT WEEK’S SPEAKER is CUSC Superintendent KARL MUELLER. The topic will be “getting back to school.”
UNTIL THEN PROMISE YOURSELF ….
