Have a Blessed Season

Almost at the end of the first quarter of the optimist year and the district is still holding strong on the Leaderboard.  Thanks to all those are sharing their belief in the creed with others.  A couple of housekeeping chores: #1 - clubs will have received their invoices from OI and the district for this quarter.  Be sure to keep current on dues.  #2 – before the end of the calendar year is a good time to make a donation to the OI Foundation.  Get that Dime a Day form completed and mailed to John Blackwell, DFR, with your $36.50 check.  Also if your club has not filled the position of Club Foundation Representative, please do so.  #3 -  do a check on your roster to make sure addresses, phone numbers, & email addresses are current.

Next, tis the Season of Giving from OI with two opportunities for growth.  First, the induction fee of $15.00 is eliminated for those joining between 1 December 2016 and 31 January 2017.  Second, your club can sponsor a ‘Social, Service, & Professional Group’ within your club.  Rules are a minimum of 15 individuals who have not been a member or friend within the past 12 months. They are part of your club but meet on their own schedule and plan their own projects although the hope would be some joint meetings and projects.  Please check out this exciting option that is only available for a limited time.

Have a blessed time with family and friends.

Yours in optimism,

Carol Hodges
