“Press on to greater achievements in the future”, part of the Optimist Creed, is particularly applicable to the Optimist Club of Coronado. This special club has been doing just that since its founding in 1970. The club is somewhat unique in the entire Optimist International organization. It has had a different member serve as president every year since its’ founding in 1970 – no repeats. To be asked is an honor; to serve is not only a lot of work, but is also personally satisfying. We wish President Bruce Johnson all the best as this remarkable club continues its outstanding service to the youth of Coronado.   This vibrant club, 148 members strong, wishes to publicly thank Mark Blumenthal for his leadership, energy, creativity and great sense of humor.

A capable Board of Directors assisting Bruce for the coming year are: Vice Presidents Mike Napolitano and John Watson, Directors Ken Ireland, Cynthia Kosciuczyk, Cote Perkins, Lynz Arendsee, Jim Zoll, Dennis Dorman, Secretary Clyde Arends, Treasurer Clint Coneway, President-Elect Diana Drummey, and Past President Mark Blumenthal. We thank them for their willingness to serve.
