Our annual “Steak and Eggs Holiday Fare” with sit-down service by the SDYC was excellent this morning. A tip of Santa’s hat also goes to Bert, who provided us the Presidents’ Punch, with its secret sauce adding to the holiday spirit. “Thank you” to our Breakfast Committee, chaired by Collin, and all the others who had a part in today’s breakfast.
With pictures and words, we looked back at some of the many successes of 2018, and look forward to 2019 being even better in our mission of supporting Peninsula youth. Along those lines, we are pleased to report recent Board approval of funds for the Liberty School under the auspices of the NTC Foundation and Dewey Elementary, as well as for the field hockey and the boys and girls lacrosse teams at Point Loma HS. “Well Done!” to Vince and members of his Youth Programs Committee. Glenn reported presenting a large check to Dewey Elementary this week from the 2018 Golden OptimisTiki fundraiser.
Please do not hesitate signing up for this year’s Golden OptimisTiki. Even though the 2019 event on April 26th seems far off, last year some Optimists could not get tickets because they waited until the last minute. Online sign-ups are now available to the public as well as to the Optimist members at this link (click here or at https://pointlomaoptimist.ejoinme.org/GoldenOptimisTiki2019 ), with a sell-out crowd expected again.
Mark your calendar for attending our annual Red Fox Steakhouse evening event on January 21st. More details will be provided via email. It will be the last time this venue will ever be available for this annual dinner, since the Demos family will be closing it starting in February. The dinner will be preceded by a Board meeting, for those interested in attending.
Best wishes to all for a very Merry Christmas, a great holiday season, and a safe, Optimistic and Happy New Year! See you in 2019!
