PNW Optimist District Declared Distinguished

Optimist International has announced top honors for outstanding service and Gay Enyeart has received the highest award for Optimist leadership by being named Distinguished Governor for 2006-2007. The award recognizes growth in service and membership in Optimist International’s Pacific Northwest District. The District is made up of Optimist Clubs in British Columbia, Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington.

Ken Johnson, Optimist International Vice President, made the award presentation at the second quarter district meeting in Vancouver, Washington. According to Gay, the honor can be attributed to every Optimist Club. “Twenty-three clubs received the Honor Club award. Thank you for giving the highest level of service to the kids in your communities,” Gay told her colleagues as she accepted the award. “This has happened because of all of you,” she concluded.
