Congratulations to our Honor and Distinguished Optimist Clubs

Optimist International released the special edition Awards Hotline for 2009-2010 today and we are proud to announce the clubs that earned special recognition for their community service and administrative excellence last year.

Optimist Clubs that earned Distinguished Club recognition are:
  • Boise, ID
  • Caldwell, ID
  • Jerome, ID
  • Meridian, ID
Optimist Clubs that earned the Honor Club recognition are:

Susan Thompson

  • Albany, OR
  • Burnaby, BC
  • Chehalis-Centralia, WA
  • Hillsboro, OR
  • Lebanon, OR
  • Pasco-Tri-Cities, WA
  • Twin Falls, ID
  • Nampa, ID
  • Mason County, WA
  • Eagle, ID 

Susan Thompson was recognized as the Distinguished and Outstanding Lt. Governor for the PNW District.

Linda Jackson was recognized as Distinguished Governor for the PNW District and Outstanding Governor for the West Region.

Mark Weinsoff, representing the West Region, was recognized as the Vice President with the Highest Percentage of Membership Growth in Optimist International.

Optimist Clubs are encouraged to participate in the Honor Club program. Achieving Honor Club is like a seal of approval, or a recognition that the club is taking all the right steps to serve their community today and in the future. For the 2009-2010 administrative year, in addition to completing all reports to Optimist International and meeting all financial obligations, clubs had to add five members over and above their starting membership roster on October 1, 2009 and complete no less than three service projects in their community.

Distinguished Clubs had to meet Honor Club requirements and sponsor a new Optimist Club or add twenty-five new members over and above their beginning roster.

Congratulations to all on your achievement. You are a blessing to your communities and the children we serve.
