We Optimists were greeted by smiling faces of Past Presidents Diana Drummey and Jack Larison. We had 6 guests and 38 Optimists up and moving at 0700 for a wonderful Halloween Day.
Pat Kelly led us in prayer and Dick Owens started the pledge.
We had dings and brags….fines and 50/50….but our guests were really the best part of the meeting.

We have for our entertainment today Lamb’s Players BASH WORLD OF RESPECT presentation. We, Optimist help fund this presentation to elementary schools students. This presentation teaches students skills to stop bulling, being kind to fellow students, and techniques to calm themselves down when upset. The actors Jazz Ruiz, Devin Wade, Julie Meram, and John Wells led by Director Kerry Meads presents this event with song, acting and audience participation. It was a wonderful uplifting presentation.
