“How My Optimism Will Help Me Press on to Greater Achievements of the Future”

Communication Contest for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

From the Governor…

 It's half way over.  Have we made more kids happy?  The answer to that questions lies in the number of members lost or gained.  We have gained 92 new members, great or it would have been if we had not lost 105 members.  That is 455 kids that we threw away.  Zones 3, 4, 5,7, 8, and 10 are showing positive growth.  Great job!!!!  Zones 1 and 2 are at the starting gate.  If they can recruit one, O happy days.  Zones 6, 9, 11 and 12 have had some unexpected losses.  I know they will work hard.  Optimist International has approve several new initiatives that will help us with members.  (1)  Bring in an educator/teacher, get one free from OI dues (2) Bring in a police person/firefighter, get one free.  (3)  Bring in an active duty/retired military and get one free.  This offer is good from 1 March to 30 June.   A club can purchase a bundle of six Friends of Optimists for $300.00.  That is a great deal.  Give to your guest speaker or that special person who supports your club.   Of course the old stand-by:  The NOW event.  Those of us who were at the 2nd quarter conference saw first hand what caliber of young members were like.  Amberly and Ling Lin were amazing.  Looking forward in seeing all in Kerrville for the 3rd quarter where we will have the Oratorical contest and for the first time in awhile, the Communication Contest for the Deaf and Hard Hearing.  I'm told that the later is great to see.  So make plans for Kerrville on the 6, 7 and 8 May at the Y.O. Ranch Resort.

Make A Kid Happy!
