What a fantastic turnout this morning at our meeting!! It was wonderful to see all of you! Thank you to everyone that contributed to the great discussion this morning!!! I will be reviewing the index cards for all suggestions and will be sending a follow up email (within the weekend) to our members along with the Power Point that was presented. Please remember, that I am open to all suggestions!!
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, July 29th as some of us will be participating in Relay for Life at Valley Middle School in memory of Jeannie Esposito. (Please see schedule noted below.)
I am asking all members to please make a conscious effort to attend our meetings. As many of you know, we are not holding our golf tournament this year and we need all members/Friends of Optimists for any new fundraising ideas that they have. I love that our mission is ‘to help local kids in the community’ and with the golf tournament not on our calendar, we definitely need everyone’s input as to some new ideas for fundraising and for moving our Club into the future.
Please remember to use smile.amazon.com for any purchases that you make on Amazon!! Our club receives a portion of the purchases.
**It is my intention to thank ALL of our volunteers in our newsletters. Please let me know if I have missed anyone.**
All members should be receiving the PowerPoint presentation from earlier today! Please take a look and offer all suggestions, comments, and advice! I promise that I will listen to all suggestions!
We are always looking for new members!! If you know of anyone that would make a great addition to our club, please invite them to a meeting! Give me a call and I would be happy to personally invite them as well!
