The Ides of March is Coming!

Five days til the middle of March and 10 days til Spring! And I need to remember to set my clock ahead an hour on Saturday night!  Time flies when you are having a good time!

And I trust that you are having not just a good time but a great time in and with your Optimist club.  Plus I hope you are sharing that optimistic enthusiasm with your community!  Who have you invited to join your cub??  Who have you talked to about the creed and what it means to you?

And with the 2016-17 almost half over, it is time to think about who will be leading your club next year – those Officer Elect Reports are due to OI by 20 May 2017!  And we all want to end the year strong so take advantage of the special incentive for 3rd quarter (1 April-30 June) – a teacher (educator) can join for just $30!!!  

Lots of ‘ands’ is this short article but that is because the thoughts are connected.  By pushing to meet the criteria for Honor Club you and your club will be serving more kids and helping both your community and yourself to be the best!

Hope to see you in Corpus Christi the end of April.  The highlight will be the oratorical contests!

Optimist Strong!

Carol Hodges
