Phather Phil’s Prayer
Heavenly Father, I think most everyone has seen ads on TV on insurance where they say ,”we will forgive your first accident” Knowing some of the drivers here that is a very compelling choice. Their promises pale by comparison to Yours Lord. For there are times when we are willing residents of the enemy camp. It’s then that we realize, how fortunate we are to have a God who loves us no matter what. A God that forgives us and all we have to do is ask. Help us to continue to prove we are good people
by our love and devotion to You and the Optimist kids. Amen!

“Above and Beyond” Award
Kelly Stone presented the “Above and Beyond” Award to Roy Barclay for his tireless behind-the-scenes support of the Christmas Tree Lot and the Oratorical Contest to name a few… Roy is a person who prefers to be out of the limelight, however his significant contributions to the club could not go unacknowledged. Congratulations – Roy!
Speaker Chantae McMillan – Medalist from 2012 London Olympics. and featured on the cover of ESPN magazine was unable to join us today. Hopefully will be able to reschedule her at a later date. Thanks to Dan Beck for stepping in at the last minute to speak to the club!
Dan told the club about the Will Cale Scholarship – Created 10 years ago for youth in the community that are at risk or have had a rocky road in life. Students are referred by the Centerville Schools counselors. They receive $750.00 per semester, for 8 semesters, enough scholarship funds to obtain an Associate’s Degree at Sinclair Community College. Anyone interested in mentoring a student, contact Dan Beck.
