It was great seeing Paul Odermatt, who was instrumental in the building and starting 

 of the IB Boys and Girls Club 49 years ago, at Today's Feed the Kids and Family. He was there and met up with his family which included his son Tony, Tony's wife Karen Odermatt and her sister Kathy Wakefield who escorted Paul.

 The whole family has taken Paul's lead and is very active in the Community of Imperial Beach. 

It was a great day to see Paul and a great day for Paul to see what he started 49 years ago with the Boys and girls Club and the Clubhouse he has named after him. What a good time to see needy Kids and Families being Fed at for him to see what has become of his dream 49 years ago!

Thank you Paul Odermatt! You are a True Hero to us here in Imperial Beach! I know the 

 Boys and Girls Club is in good hands with Ken Blinsman at the helm as President/CEO


 

  and the hard working people he has working under him like Aaron Ruiz and the great community of Imperial Beach that always shows up when it's time to help someone else in need. And of course, your family of Tony, Karen and sister Kathy have all followed in your footsteps and are a credit to theon community!

 As always, when we get into doing tributes somehow 


 someone gets missed or left out of the article. We "Thank you" also!
