Earlier this month, Sharon Speer, treasurer, blogger, and now newsletter editor of the Portland Peninsula Optimist Club published and emailed the first edition of "Optimistic Pennings" to her fellow club members. I was excited to receive it on behalf of the PNW District.

The Peninsula Optimist Club has been very active over the past year and in the first edition she highlighted some of their activities including:

  • Annual Fireworks Sale
  • 2013 Scholarship Winners
    Portland Peninsula Fireworks
    Boy Scout Troop 52, Portland
  • Sauce and Toss Scholarship Fundraiser
  • Boy Scout Troop 52
In the newsletter, Sharon also described the membership retention and recruitment efforts of the club. They welcomed back Marty Jackson and Rodney Lee and encouraged members to bring guests and friends to the meetings. To keep those meetings interesting, they've re-initiated their guest speaker program. 

Find out more about the Portland Peninsula Optimist Club on the club blog, newsletter; or if you live in Portland (or know someone who does), stop by to see them on the first and third Mondays of each month at noon, Christie's Restaurant, 5507 N. Lombard St., Portland, OR 97203.
