Notes from Beaverton Optimist Club, May 23

Happy Friday Everyone,

We had a few guests this morning. Kathy Jungles & Bill French from the Hillsboro Club joined us. As did County Commissioner Greg Malinowski.

Few Dates to remember:
This coming Monday's board meeting has been cancelled due to lack of board members being in town.

June 1, 2013 is our first Farmers Market

June 20, 2013 Dean Mitchell Scholarship winner dinner at Spaghetti Factory in Tannesbourne. For more information on the scholorship winner please visit our website at

District Convention this year in McCall Idaho in August.

Hillsboro Optimist Club is doing their golfing fundraiser on September 21, 2013 in case anyone from our club would like to form a team and make money for the club at the same time. Bill will be sending Wally the information regarding the event.

Marv D. was back and looking very good. Gave us an update on his condition as well as the Memorial Day Celebration this coming Monday.

Memorial Day Ceremony. 10am a 62 piece band will start to play. At 11am the ceremony will start. There will be 2 fly overs, one at 11am and one at 12pm. Please come out for this ceremony at the Veterans Memorial Park in Beaverton.

Wally passed around index cards so we could write encouraging messages to the folks in Moore, Oklahoma. There is an optimist club in the tornado ravaged town. Wally has a contact name and will forward on these messages of support to that person.

We got a t-card from Stacy Goodwin of SMART. 

Pin and Badge check, Dave got fined. Alan was the secret greeter and said everyone shook his hand except Eric and since he's not a paying member yet we couldn't fine him.

Road Cleanup: 6 folks showed up. No PAL Kids, there was a miscommunication. Alan mentioned they picked up 9 bags of trash, someone's drive shaft and many hub caps. Thank you to Tom for coordinating the event.

Raffle winner last week was Eric, didn't hear if he donated again or not. This week was Alan.

Kathy J. brought up that the officer's for this year report was due the 20th of this month, asked we got our's in. President Bob is out of town so we'll have to ask when he gets back.

This week in History, 2 dates: 1843 and 1900. In 1843 on yesterday's date in history, Great Emigration departs from Oregon. In 1900, Forgotten Civil War hero honored.

Our speaker this week was Love Inc. They have an event coming up on August 10th from 11-1pm at Aloha High School. Their 7th annual Packed with Love Backpack Giveaway. They are looking for volunteers, if interested please call 503-336-5946.
