Larry Blackburn named PNW District Optimist of the Year

Immediate Past Governor Linda Jackson presented Larry Blackburn with the PNW District Optimist of the Year award during the first quarter district meeting. She explained that as President of the Optimist Club of Caldwell, Idaho, Larry was a Builder of Excellence for the newest member to the PNW Optimist family, the Middleton Area Optimist Club. Larry and club membership chair Anita Welchel worked to bring in 19 new members to the Caldwell Optimist Club and perhaps most important, Larry was and is an avid phone caller. He makes sure that everyone is invited to every meeting enhancing their attendance and retention efforts.

The inscription on the award read "In recognition of your exceptional ability to share your optimism with others" because that is exactly what he does.

This year Larry is serving as the Lt. Governor for Zone 7. Congratulations on your award and thank you for sharing your optimism.
