We had a great time at the Aloha Community Library on the evening of 9/11. We had around 15 with some of our members and others from the community. President Wally asked for folks to share a memorable volunteer experience. We found out we have a wealth of volunteers in our community. Aaron Esparza, from Genesis Mediation, won the door prize…a copy of Wally’s book: Sent to Serve…The Chaplains of 9/11. Stay tuned for our next Community Coffee.

The weather was threatening but that didn’t keep away a fine group of Optimists from cleaning up Murray Blvd. this morning. We were joined by two of our newest members, Rich and Dave. Dave even convinced his son to come and help! As it turned out, it didn’t rain at all and we were done in no time, although Alan seemed to lose a few of our members along the way. He eventually found them after they hid under the bridge!

We had a great showing by the American Legion Post 124. In attendance were Bob Gelhar, Financial Officer; Bernie Meuwissen,1st Vice Commander; Louis Haga, Boys State; and Commander Marv Doty.
Louis shared about the Legion’s participation in Boys State, where high schoolers attend to run for political office for a week at the “Boys State.” They learn a lot about government in the process. Our own Dick Schouten, Washington County Commissioner, has served as a judge in the past.
At the conclusion, President Wally Johnston presented a check to the post to help sponsor young people who attend Boys State.
