My apologizes I completely forgot to type up last Thursday's breakfast minutes.
Our guests were Doug and Melinda from the Aloha Community Library. As well as Tom Colett, who was our speaker.
A presentation followed for the bulletin boards that the club had worked on. The wood for the frames came from trees Jack used to have in his yard when he lived in Aloha. Jack also made mounting blocks for each bulletin board. Wally sent out a link, over the weekend, that was on the Aloha Community Library page. If you haven't seen it here is the link: http://alohalibrary.org/wp/beaverton-optimist-club-donates-bulletin-boards-to-the-aloha-community-library/
Thank you to all those who were involved. The boards look incredible.
