Today’s Breakfast Topic – Children with disabilities.

We had a good crowd out today.  It started off small but kept getting larger!  We had four guests, include Bill and Cathy, our former Lt. Governor and our present Lt. Governor.  We also had Dalton Melvin, a Realtor who is new to the area.  His father was an Optimist so he wants to get involved.  I guess we will let him!

Our speaker was Natascha Hottges-Ortiz from the Washington County Dept. of Health & Human Services.  She spoke about her work with children with disabilities.

Our new Facebook page is up and running.  Please “like” us:




Susan, with the help of Linda Jackson, will be adding a Beaverton Optimist Club Facebook.  Stay tuned.

I had someone contact me via our website with an interest in joining.  I called and invited Dalton to the breakfast this week.  Okay to the rest of you, if he comes I’m the one to get him an application! 🙂  Wally
