2014 in review…we even had people from Russia visit our site!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 300 times in 2014. If it were a cable car, it would take about 5 trips to carry that many people.

Beaverton Optimist Newsletter – December 18, 2014

December 18, 2014

 

Susan was not at the breakfast today so you will have to put up with my chicken scratches.

 

Karen came in late but was forgiven because she brought gifts…2015 calendars.

 

Remember…no meetings the next two Thursdays.  Enjoy the holidays.

 

Commander John Koch is looking for some volunteer help with active shooter training.  Don’t worry, they won’t shoot you!  The dates are December 22-23 and 29-30.  Let John know.  John also tells us the Sheriff’s Office may be featured in an upcoming 20/20 TV program.  He will keep us informed.

 

January 6th, 8 AM we will be working on wood at the Jenkins Estate.  Please contact Bob or Roger if you would like to help.

 

January 7th is the Aloha Business Association luncheon.  The topic will be the new park going in behind Mountain View School.  It starts at 11:30 AM.

 

January 15th is our Community Coffee at the Edward’s Center, 6:30 – 8:00 PM.  Watch for further information.

 

TONIGHT is the concert, “Holy Night” at the Alpenrose Dairyville Opera House.  The Westside Singers will perform some new Christmas music (Linda, Wally’s wife, sings in this jazz choir).  The cost is $10 per adult and $5 for kids.  Proceeds go to help fight childhood sex trafficking.

 

The club is working with the park district and the Schouten family to plant a tree and plaque in honor of Dick’s wife, Karen, at the Roy Dancer Park.  It will likely take place in the spring of 2015.  Stay tuned.

 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!
