Welcome to George Lewko as OptiNews Contributing Editor

I'd like to take a few moments to welcome George Lewko (Prince Albert O.C.) who has agreed to serve as a contributing editor for AMS&NW OptiNews.  I first met George at the 3rd Quarter District Conference in Saskatoon on May 15, 2010.  George presented a very informative workshop on using "Vertical Response" as a mass email newsletter solution to communicate with club members.

George brings a wealth of Optimist and web experience, serving as his club's President and Web Chair.  The Prince Albert club currently runs both an active web site and facebook page.

George has been a member of the P.A. Optimist Club since 1986. He has served in most Optimist club positions (1995-96 President), and currently serves as President, Bingo Chair, OptiMart Chair, Newsletter and Website Chair (and I thought I was busy!).

George served as the Zone L.G. in 1996-97, and on the last day of office, had a combine accident which left him short 4 fingers on his right hand.  He is a Professional Agrologist, with a certificate in Forensic Agrology.  He works at Inputs Management Agro, near Meath Park, but does work on Forensic Agrology cases across Saskatchewan.

On the weekends, in the old farm yard, George owns Paintball Paradise Prince Albert and can be found entertaining thousands of paintballers.
