  • Beth Otts Named Christmas Parade Grand Marshal

    Posted on November 29th, 2017 Ocoee Lions Club No comments

    Beth Otts will serve as the Grand Marshal of the 2017 Ocoee Christmas Holiday Parade. Beth became an Ocoee resident in 2005, which was also the year her first community event took place in the City; helping to feed families that had relocated here from Hurricane Katrina. She is also known by residents for her role as Senior Marketing Director for Chick-fil-A at Ocoee after starting her career there in 2006. Either on her own or representing the company, she has been involved in numerous community and City events and organizations, including but not limited to Relay for Life, STARS of West Orange, Saving Young Hearts, Ocoee Little League, and Ocoee Coffee with a Cop. The phrase that comes to mind when describing Beth: She loves Ocoee! Her outgoing personality and enthusiasm for giving back to her community are contagious. Her role at Chick-fil-A takes her all over the community, meeting people and working hard to make every day a good day in Ocoee.

    The Ocoee Christmas Holiday Parade is scheduled for Saturday December 2nd, starting at 10:00 am.

    20140623_205512An installation ceremony was held at the Ocoee Lions Clubhouse on Taylor Street for incoming officers of the Club. David Wheeler was reelected for a second term as the Club President. Wheeler has been an active member of the Ocoee Lions Club for the past decade.

    Cathy Sills was reelected to serve as Club Administrative Secretary. The Club’s Vice-President will be Mike Paulin. District Governor Al Becker presided over the ceremony.

    Wheeler, summarizing the Club’s active past year, noted a long list of projects and fundraisers, including holding its first poker tournament fundraiser, organizing the Ocoee Christmas parade, delivering presents to Health Central Hospital on Christmas Day, celebrating its 65th anniversary Charter Night, holding its 10th annual golf tournament, running the Ocoee farmers’ market, collecting eyeglasses, and participating in the Ocoee Spring Fling, among many others. Wheeler said we’ll be doing all this again in the next year. The Club also saw the unfortunate passings of long-time members Josh Merritt and Marvin Sanders. The Club brought in four new members in the past year, and is transferring in another from Jamaica.

    The Ocoee Lions Club has 35 members and meets on alternative Monday evenings at the Ocoee Lions Clubhouse.
