The installation of new officers and directors of the Magnolia Park Optimist Club for the 2010-11 year was held on Sept. 16 at the Elks club. Former Lt. Gov. Jim Lloyd first retired the outgoing officers — President Terry Scott, and board members, Ernine Larson, Vonda Neundorf, Tony Magnante, Kent Warner, Bill Bertrand and Jesse Fox. Outgoing President, Terry Scott was greatly complimented as he met all his goals, including increased membership.
Lloyd then proceeded with the induction of the new officers and board members. The 2010-11 officers are: President Evie Magnante, First Vice President Terry Scott, Secretary Linda Oseransky, Club Treasurer Kent Warner, Youth Treasurer Ernine Larson. New board members are Terry Scott, Ernine Larson, Linda Oseransky, Kent Warner, Bill Bertrand, Jesse Fox and Gary Oseransky.
Before becoming president, Magnante had been very active in club activities organizing the women for the annual golf tournament and planning the "Respect for the Law" and the "Youth Appreciation" programs. We wish her a very productive year.
