WEEKLY OPTIMISTIC QUOTE

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.

PRESIDENT's CORNER

I would love to say Spring has Sprung, but many of us are still experiencing below average temperatures and snow flurries!! Being Optimists, we know Spring is on its way. I have had a great last two months and witnessed a lot of "United" in action in our district. In February, our district was well represented at the Atlanta Leadership Summit. MORE . .

OIF DIME - A - DAY PROGRAM

Yogi Berra once said "A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

However a dime a day donation to your Foundation can make a significant difference in the life of a child. This contribution to the unrestricted funds of the Optimist International Foundation (OIF) allows them to fund such programs as the JOOI clubs, the Internet Safety Program, and many other programs that provide a helping hand to the children in our communities.

Every club in our District should set the goal to have 100% participation in the Dime-A-Day program. Please select a club representative for the OIF and have them encourage club members to support this program. A donation form can be downloaded here.

Each donor will receive this handsome pin (shown below) recognizing their support of the Foundation in "Helping Optimists Help Kids”
