On Saturday Feb. 11, 2012, Bob and Ray from the Leduc Optimist Club plus Brian, John and Ruby from the Edmonton Dinner Optimist Club attended a dinner reception & party in Red Deer for Danny Rodgers, the immediate past president of Optimist International. Danny had issued a challenge to all Optimist clubs to sign up 20 FOO ( Friends Of Optimism ) members within a period of time. The Optimist Club of Blackfalds was one of only five to accomplish the goal and Danny had promised to personally visit each of the successful clubs. He gave an interesting and inspiring speech and the whole event was well done and enjoyable. Unfortunately, we couldn't stay for the live music and dance later in the evening as we had to drive back to our resident areas.
Congratulations and Thanks to the Blackfalds members.
