At our June 28th meeting, we were pleased to have Mr. Charles Klass as our guest; who was the founder and is a current board member of the Leduc Food Bank. He outlined the interesting and commendable story of how it came into being.

Optimist members brought personal donations of non-perishable food items and a club donation cheque of $200.00 was also presented for the Food Bank.

THANK YOU to Charles, Gert Reynar and all the other Leduc Food Bank personnel and volunteers for the good work that you do (and have done) in the area.

Leduc Optimist Club Summer Barbecue

Saturday July 21st (arrive at 3:00pm) has been set as the date for the Leduc Optimist Club summer barbecue get together at the home of Ray & Connie..

As in the past, a grilling steak, baked potato, coffee or tea and water will be provided by the club. This is a BYOB event, if you wish to consume alcohol beverages.

PLEASE BRING A POT LUCK DISH ( enough for 15-20 people to sample) to round out the menu. Bring portable chairs, if possible.

Non-member spouses are invited, of course.

IMPORTANT: Please advise me (RSVP) if you are able to attend. We need to get a firm number to order the steaks and potatoes.
