Zone Meeting on Nov 26

Approximately 30 members were in attendance and
this included several visitors - We were very happy to
have the following come to the meeting: District Chair
Edie McInnes- Zone 3 LG Edna Coulter, Zone 7 LG
Wendy Skoretz - Pres John McCrimmon, Backfalds
Optimist Club, - Karen & Don Holstrom, Medicine Hat.
We also had Bev Sawchuk from Stollery foundation
The Zone meeting went well and Opt Edie gave
a talk on Membership and I hope our members who are
not able attend a District Board meeting took something
away from her presentation. Bev Sawchuk was
overwhelmed as I was with the amount of gifts received
for the kids. It was very gratifying to see our Zone
members doing such a wonderful job in bringing all the
items they did. A huge Thankyou goes to the Beverly
Optimist Club who donated 4 32' TV’s with WII
machines plus a cheque. And thank you to the Leduc
Club for their cash donation of $500 over and above
gifts brought. $110 in fine pot collections was donated
to the Stollery towards 22 Tim Horton cards for the sick
children’s visiting parents. Thank you, Thank you.
Opt Ruby, John and myself delivered all the
items collected to the hospital. The dock trolley was
overloaded with the gifts for the Children. The hospital
was going to wrap the gifts and will be given to the kids
by Santa.
About 44 attended the St. Albert Optimist
Club’s 30th Anniversary. They had two charter
members: Glen Kreller and Peter VanMoll. The
evening was great and the food was very yummy.
I would like to wish each and everyone the Very
Best Christmas and a Very Happy New Year.
Peggy Dick, LG Zone 5
