letter from Queens Intermediate Boy athletic department:
“I would like to thank you
for your generous donation. Your contribution makes it possible for us to
purchase equipment and clothing for our student athletes. These items
are essential for the student’s safety, and it also gives them a great
sense of pride.
We have our sights set on
a very successful year. As the economy continues to change and our
funding is cut, we still keep our focus on fielding all of our teams and
teaching these boys how to become young men. This is only possible
because of thoughtful contributions from organizations like you. We hope
for your continued support in the future.
Once again thank you for your generous donation,
Ryan M. Butler

The Optimist Creed
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater
achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living
creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time
to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and
too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
