Great turnout for Team Jeannie at Relay for Life earlier today! Thank you to Skip, JT and Carol, Joe and Pat, Kevin, David, and Porama who showed up at Opening Ceremonies earlier today. At this point, the Carlsbad – Encinitas Relay for Life has already brought in over $105,000 for cancer. Their goal by the end of this Relay is to hit $130k. If you haven’t made it out to Valley Middle School yet, take your walking shoes and cash as they are still accepting any donations!
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!
