Beaverton Optimist Club
Thursday, November 17th
Allen Z rang the bell, in place of Bob A. and Wally J followed with the invocation.
There ya have it..... A thru Z.....!
Wally also asked about "This Day in History, 1777"....??
Feeling a bit guilty, Wally apologized for harassing our morning guest and paid a visit to the fine pot.....Fortunately, he closed the door behind him....
Secret Greeter this morning was Bob P and several Optimists including Wally, Jack & Barry were fined..!
Barry B won the raffle and Wally collected his winnings from the prior week.
Bob also reminded everyone of our December 8th, Christmas meeting, 6:30pm, at the Peppermill... Recall no breakfast meeting that Thursday.......!! Bring your spouse, a wrapped gift, your appetite and some Xmas spirit and expect to have a great time and some good eats (steak, ham or your choice off the menu).
Speaker this am was Echo Crete, volunteer with Northwest Children's Outreach...This all volunteer, faith based network, provides clothing and other essentials for children ages 0-16. They have seven locations (warehouses) in the metro area, including Washington County. They collect and distribute diapers, formula, hygiene products, books, shoes, children's safety products, blankets and gently-used clothing (newborns to teens). Their concept is pretty simple. There are many children in the area who simply do not have the basic clothes or hygiene products to attend school. Northwest Children's Outreach work with other social service agencies, as a resource, to fill that gap..... Very impressive and rewarding effort..... You can get more information, volunteer or donate via the following www.northwestchildrensoutreach.org/
This Day in History, 1777... Articles of Confederation created by the Continental Congress......
No meeting next Thursday morning .....Thanksgiving......!!
