An idea to recognize adult volunteers in your community

It's nice to recognize our outstanding volunteers.  Somehow, it is even nicer when others take notice of their outstanding efforts as well. In Centerville, Ohio, two Optimist Club members were honored by the Presidents Club of Dayton during the Outstanding Service Club/Community Members Breakfast.

Kelly Eggers and Bill Defries were chosen for the contributions to the club and community.  Kelly is involved in the Avenue of the Flags fundraising program and new club building.  She will be club president in 2011.  Bill was recognized because of the over-and-above support that he lends to the club and community that includes hosting events at his Beef O'Brady restaurants.

Does your community have an event where Optimist Club members can be recognized by others?  If so, be sure to be involved and if not, why not be the group that gets it started for others?  We share in the good work that our service clubs do.  Why not help with the celebration?
