The governor goes golfing for kids

Governor Bill spendsDay 1 of the 2011-2012
administrative year at a fundraiser
for the Hillsboro Optimist Club.
How did Governor Bill French and first lady Evelyn spend the first day of the new Optimist Club year?

Golfing. To raise money for children's projects. With his home club, the Hillsboro Optimist Club.

Isn't that what being an Optimist Club member is all about? Yes, even district leaders find time to be involved with club projects and make a difference at home.

Before leaving for the golf course, Governor Bill sent a message to the club presidents, lt. governors and committee chairs. He said,
"Congratulations! Wow!! We are all official now. I know that many of you have been working in your new positions already because we have been exchanging emails, making big decisions and moving forward. We will have a great year! 
I am looking forward to working with each one of you and getting better acquainted as we bring out the best in kids. Let's give the kids a hand. I will see you all in Hood River.
And with that friends, we are off and running and ready to give 100% and then some to the kids and clubs in the PNW District.

Please register now for the 1st Quarter Meeting in Hood River.

Find the contact information for all PNW District officers and chairpersons here. 

Thanks to Alan Zehntbauer for the picture.
