Past President Beryl’s Finale

Past President Beryl’s finale meeting was well attended by Dinner Optimists and by both Lt. Gov. Trevor and Incoming Lt Gov Peggy.

This was a program meeting and Barb Spencer from the Zebra Society was our guest speaker. Edmonton's Zebra Child Protection Centre is for any child who may experience abuse. It takes a community to raise a child and our donations are greatly appreciated. After the presentation Barb presented us the new Zebra Zipper pulls and President Beryl received a stuffed zebra plush toy.

Past President Beryl thanked each member attending personally by remarking on their
contribution to making the past year a huge success. The Presidents Award was given to Opt Dave Parnell for his telephoning of all the members before the meetings and for his committee involvement with the Brail Tones and 85th Anniversary. Secretary Lucile was awarded a Life Membership from our club. Each member was given a souvenir Dinner Optimist Club shopping bag. The blue cloth bag features our club logo on one side and Bringing out the Best in Kids logo on the other side. The 2010-2011 year and President Beryl are also featured. Lt Gov Trevor presented Beryl a Tim Horton’s gift card.

It was a great year and any Optimists who missed this meeting will be able to obtain a bag at a future meeting.
