St. Albert Breakfast Optimists New Club Website

President Bev Dickie is pleased to announce the publishing of the clubs website at http://sab.acr-optimists.org.  We want to thank our Zone and District Webmaster, Opt Gord Welling for building our website.

The St. Albert Breakfast Optimists hope that their new website will provide more public exposure to the community groups that they support and attract potential new members.

This website was built and is hosted on Google Sites.  Optimist Gord can help any club in Zone 5 build a similar website which they can maintain themselves.  

The advantage of Google Sites is that anyone who can use Microsoft Word can manage a Google Site with about an hour's training.  If you would like to build a club website, please contact Opt Gord.
