PNW District Optimist Governor-elect Fred Wallace receives honor from the Red Cross

Kudos to our very own Fred Wallace, member of the Gresham Optimist Club and the governor-elect for the PNW District.

Fred was recently honored by the American Red Cross. His VIP (very important partner) Teresa Wallace submitted the following news about his recognition:

Fred and I have been volunteering with the Red Cross for many years as an Optimist Club Volunteam for the club we are a member of at the time. Currently as members of The Optimist Club of Gresham. May 4th was the Volunteer Appreciation Program. Fred was recognized for his years of service. Here is a copy of that recognition. 
 “Fred Wallace is proudly wearing not only his 30 year service pin today, but also his 9 gallon pin as well! Thank you Fred. Mr. Wallace started volunteering through the local Optimist Club. After 30 years the club is still helping and we are delighted to say so is he! Fred mentioned what he enjoys most about volunteering is meeting the people and seeing the work of the Red Cross in action. Fred, I agree with you, our mission inspires millions at home and around the world. And Fred, you inspire us with your 30 years of service. Thank you so much!”
