Mike Donahue Addresses Large Group

Mike Donahue, former news anchor for KOIN-6 was our speaker today.  We had a large contingency from the club, Aloha Business Association, Hillsboro Optimist Club, and community.

 

Donahue2In retirement Mike is working with the media department for the Providence Healthcare System.  He puts together reports and videos of employees and patients who make a difference.  They call his segments, “How We Care.”  He shared a story about a 14 year old Boy Scout who helped produce 500 handmade holiday stockings for patients.  Another was a young woman who went into nursing after her experience seeing the devastation of 9/11.  Providence paid for her education to serve in the Providence system.  See more of the videos in the link above.

Mike doesn’t drink coffee so Wally and Roger presented him with an Optimist “tea” cup.

Because we were an honor club last year, our board secretary, Dusty, presented Susan with a certificate of honor for her dedication as our former secretary.  Thanks Susan!

 

Susan receives a big thank you from the club and the Optimist District.
