Upcoming Events: Think Golf!  We are in the home stretch for planning for this big fundraiser which is scheduled for Thursday, May 22nd.  There are approximately 17 gold sponsors and 24 foursomes committed.  We are happy to accept additional sponsors and foursomes, along with gifts to use for awards and prizes.  Workers are asked to arrive at the Links at 11a.m. as the golfers are expected to be arriving around noon.


Don has enough volunteers for the Soccer Tournament Parking over Memorial weekend.  He will send a reminder email with the schedule prior to the event.   Marci has worked on parking flyers to handout ahead of time to encourage patrons to go to our lot.


Mark G. and Walt will represent the Optimists at the Dollars for Scholars program on 5/28/14.


Public Relations: The Club has locked-in the domain names for our website gettysburgoptimist.org and gettysburgoptimist.com.


Officer Nominations: We are looking for volunteers for the following positions: President, VP, and Secretary.  Tom agreed to stay on as Treasurer, but he would like someone to consider being the Treasurer-in-training.  There is also room on the Board of Directors if anyone is interested.  Elections will take place Wednesday, August 6th.


Other notes:

Well wishes to Al as he recovers from a double knee replacement.

We received word from the Optimists of East York that Tom McGlynn is currently in hospice care.  Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.


Upcoming Meeting: Wednesday, May 21 at 6:30pm at the Lake Heritage Pavilion.
