Here is one of our own, Doug Phillips, telling your Lebanon Optimists about the great work our Lebanon Booster Club has been lining up and knocking down. From the ashes of the old "Wigwam Wisemen", Doug and a dedicated group of boosters have revitalized the Lebanon Booster Club. They are holding events, coordinating signs and donations for sports, and signing up Booster Club members to raise funds for Lebanon sports and other LHS extracurriculars. Their goal is to eventually make sports and other extracurriculars free for any student that wants to participate. Message us to learn more about how you can help!

Here is one of our own, Leigh Matthews Bock, telling your Lebanon Optimists about the wonderful, powerful, and meaningful work that the South Willamette Valley Honor Flight does to honor those who fought for our country. Along with Paul, a Korean War Veteran now residing in the Lebanon Veterans Home, Leigh presented a moving video about how Honor Flight brings our aged warriors back to our Nation's capital and recognizes them for their sacrifice. It was truly touching to see how meaningful the Honor Flight is to our veterans. Please help this great cause by donating, volunteering to be a Guardian that accompanies each veteran, and by helping them find veterans!

If you know a veteran that hasn't been honored with an Honor Flight, please let us know right away so we can get them the recognition they deserve.
