Local Icon Honored, IB Optimists and Friends throw Birthday Party for Captain Bill Ziedbeck USN Retired


The IB Optimists, along with friends from the Bonita club, did a birthday parade for our charter member, Bill Zidbeck, who turns 88 tomorrow.  Bill said, “You made my day. My sister Bootsie and her son Steve (visiting) were amazed by the display of enthusiasm. Thank you so much for a marvelous Birthday surprise!” Club members loved it too; we did “social distance” but seeing each other in person for the first time in three 
months felt so good!  We had eight cars in our group.  (More photos later)

Last year we had a great one on one interview with Bill and local historian Dr Steve Schoener. With Steve's help we published an article where you can read more about Bill's amazing life.
