Thank you to everyone who attended the Optimist Installation Banquet on Wednesday, October 14th.  We look forward to seeing how the Optimist Club of Gettysburg continues to grow and support the community with the leadership of incoming officers: President Bruce Bradshaw, VP Darlene Brown, Treasurer Tom Barako, and Secretary Fred Darling.  Special recognition was given to Optimist for Life Member Mark Cropp for his persistent dedication to the mission of the club.   Tom Barako was given the Outstanding Service Award for his eight years as Treasurer and continued embodiment of Optimist ideals.  Outgoing President Kris Accardi was  acknowledged for his two years of successful guidance of the club.  Many thanks to the Dobbin House, guest speaker Judge Todd R. Platts, and Lt Governor Dallas Smith who all helped to make  it a successful evening.
