Remembering Glenn Jewison

It is also with great sadness that the Distriict has lost another great supporter. Past Governor, Glenn Jewison, passed away April 15, 2010.

Glenn was an active Optimist right up until his passing. He helped the Downtowners with the Band Festival (something he had done FOREVER) in late March and Glenn and Betty had just conducted the Sundown’s Oratorical Contest a few days before his surgery.

He was one of the organizers of the Taylor Field beer sales, no small undertaking. He loved working with kids. Glenn always had a big smile on his face and was one of those people who were just a joy to be around. We will miss him.
