The 4th Quarter Zone 5 Optimist Clubs Meeting held on Saturday September 7th (11:00am) in the games room of the Leduc Legion and hosted by the Black Gold Optimist Club of Leduc saw 29 attendees. THANKS to the Clubs who did RSVP the number of members attending. This enabled us to pre-order light lunch food from the Legion kitchen for 30 persons and it worked out perfectly.
Along with individual Club Reports, there was a speech by outgoing Lieutenant/Governor Geoff Connor who was very appreciative and generous in his Thanks to all who assisted him during his term.
Incoming L/G Patti Welling also spoke on her hopes and plans for the forthcoming Optimist year.
There was also an excellent video presentation from the Edmonton Dinner Optimist Club in support of the Optimists District 13 Meeting to be held in Edmonton on October 18-19; which included a rousing, amazing choral rendition.
Unfortunately, rain cancelled the Horseshoes Contest that normally follows the meeting / lunch.
Appreciation is expressed to all.
