I would like to take a few moments to thank you all for the Opportunity of serving as your Governor for the 2016-2017 Optimist Year.
A few of the Goals I would like to see happen this year:
- Communication, We as a group need to improve our method of communication, I would like to keep all Optimists in our district informed on what we have happening within the District as well as Optimist International.
- Our OI President Jim Kondrasuk has deemed this is the “The Year Of the Honor Club” and I would like to see our District achieve this, not only for the recognition but for the youth we help when we work to achieve this goal.
- I would like to see our District grow this year. We have many areas in our district that do not have Optimist Clubs to service the youth in those communities. “Together We Can” change that, remember every Optimist Member impacts 35 kids, so let’s flood our District with Optimism…
I am finding that as Governor, I have much more support than I could have ever hoped for. This is a Great District, with a Great Membership, and I am Thankful and Honored to be part of this group…
So, let’s Dig In this year, Roll Up Our Sleeves, Build New Clubs, and Make Our Optimism Spread like Wild Fire…
