File this under my bad. I knew that the Mission Optimist Club had talent shows occasionally and that's where I went wrong.

Please allow me to correct the record and congratulate the Mission Optimist Club on 20 years of hosting the Mission's Got Talent contest.

The most recent contest was held Saturday, February 23, 2019. The winners were highlighted in a full-page spread in the Mission City RecordShown here are:

Top row, left to right, Senior Category

  • Third place - Taeryn Berg - Tairen sang and played an original song, "Mess"
  • Second place - Jarom Fischer - Jarom sang "A Million Dreams"
  • First place - Taylor Crowdis - Taylor sang "Everybody Knows"


Bottom row, left to right, Junior Category

  • Third place - Serenity Gibson and Samara Dejong Nemeth - Serenity and Samara sang "This is Me"
  • Second place - Brooklyn Ford-Hack - Brooklyn sang "Never Enough"

Our best wishes go out to all of the contestants and an extra special "BRAVO" for the winners. 

We're proud to have the Mission Optimist Club as part of the Pacific Northwest District, doing its thing, serving its community, and helping kids be great since 1985*.

Time is running out. A popular activity for all Optimist Clubs is approaching its deadline. The Pacific Northwest District (PNW) Regional competitions for the Optimist International Oratorical Contest will take place in March in preparation for the PNW Optimist District finals on April 12, 2019, Bellingham, WA.

The topic for the 2018-2019 Optimist International Oratorical World Championships is “Is There a Fine Line Between Optimism and Reality?” Click here for the entry form.
