We all enjoyed the buffet provided by the Royal Fork.

Lacy Hoyland was our guest speaker and she outlined the Child Seat Loaner Program and the benefits received from the Optimists. Past Pres Clint spoke on the Lunch program at St Catherine's School. Opt Peggy summarized a few other Optimist programs including the Juvenile Curling, she invited everyone look at some of the past year scrapbooks and then returned control of the meeting to Pres Wyn.
