Members Lois Arnott and Anna Lamer were involved in an automobile accident on
Saturday, January 15th, 2011 on their way to attend the Optimist Regular Membership
Meeting. Both ladies were listed in critical condition and both required extensive
surgery. At this writing, Anna Lamer is in Mt. Clemens General and Lois Arnott is in
Beaumont Hospital in Grosse Pointe. With this in mind, it has been decided to postpone
our Youth Appreciation Program to a date in the near future. Here’s wishing a speedy
and quick recovery to these wonderful Ladies.
