The regular meeting of the Black Gold Optimist Club of Leduc on Thursday Oct. 10, 2103 heralded the start on the new Optimist year 2013-2014 with eleven members in attendance. New Vice-President Ian Rodger was recognized and thanks were expressed to Denise Stamp as outgoing VP for her work in that position.

A formal motion was put forth, seconded and approved to hold our third annual Grade 5 only Spelling Bee on April 26th, 2014.

A Thank You note from the Leduc Food Bank for our recent donation was received and read out to the club.

The application for the Alberta Gaming Raffle Licence to conduct our next fundraiser will be completed and forwarded when more information is available on costs etc.

One of the table centerpieces, looking great, was on hand to show all Club members.
