Greg Griffin awarded Optimist of the Year, Bob Lawson receives Newcomer of the Year–Sept. 27th, 2016

As Optimists gathered at Polen Farm for the kick-off of a new Optimist Year, two club members received special honors.  New club member Bob Lawson received the “Newcomer of the Year” Award from outgoing President Myron Rheaume for his outstanding volunteer efforts as an Optimist who joined the club in 2016.

Greg Griffin received the “Optimist of the Year” Award that honored his work in 2016 as a Board Member, chairperson of several committees, improvement of processes and producer of the club’s award-winning video “It’s Not What We Do – It’s Why We Do it”.

The evening included a delicious meal prepared by our own Centerville High School Culinary Arts Class.  Long-time club member Larry Lynde was welcomed as incoming President for 2016-17 and Myron Rheaume was thanked with a standing ovation for his leadership and service to the club in 2015-16.  In addition, new Vice Presidents and a new Board of Directors were installed during the event.
