Portland Peninsula Optimist Club celebrates the season with Christmas trees

The biggest and longest-running Optimist Club Christmas Tree lot in the PNW District is just about to wrap up another season and according to club member Sharon Speer, it's been a good one.

Sharon sent us a few pictures of the Portland Peninsula Optimist Club that included Santa and his elves at work. (left)

She explained that Mario's, a men's clothing store in Downtown Portland, helped them advertise the tree lot this year. It created a window display with trees and coats that sent their shoppers to the Portland Peninsula Optimist Club tree lot. (right)

Shoppers found a well stocked and well-lit tree lot from which to choose their centerpiece for the Christmas season. (left)

Sharon also explained that the Optimist Club took time at its December 15, 2014 meeting to recognize a past president for his service to the Portland Peninsula Optimist Club. Reverend Bill Van Nostron was celebrated with cake and gratitude during this festive time of year. (right)

Thanks to Sharon Speer, Portland Peninsula Optimist Club, for the photos.

It's Christmas Party time in Lebanon, OR

The Lebanon Optimist Club took time out from its Christmas party to pose for a Merry Christmas greeting. It looks like it should be a Facebook cover photo to me. Just sayin'....

Please send your Christmas photos - and more - to the PNW District webmaster so that we might share your adventures with others. Thanks!

Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club hosts Student-of-the-Month presentations

Optimist Club Student of the Month
Governor Dick Disney visited the Chehalis-Centralia Optimist Club on Tuesday, December 16, 2014 for Student-of-the-Month presentations and a delicious ham dinner. President Emma Ball with the assistance of her husband, Don, and Monique Connors provided the potluck enjoyed by Optimist Club members, students and parents. The activity was held at the Chehalis Senior Center.

A signature event for the club, the program recognizes students each month and asks them to make an oral presentation about their background and their future ambitions and desires. Club members then ask questions of the students while four Optimist Club members scorethem. The results of the evening will be tabulated with other Students-of-the-Mont and scholarships are then provided to the winners to establish a College Fund they may add to in preparation for college.

According to Governor Dick, it was an engaging evening, enjoyed by all, including the proud parents of the special Student-of-the-Month honorees.
