2nd Quarter Conference Update

Optimist gathered to Chart a Course for Fund Raising at the 2nd quarter Indiana South District Conference on February 6-7, 2015, at Hilton Garden Inn at Edinburgh, Indiana.


One of the key elements for any Optimist Club is generating funds for youth works. Plainfield Club Secretary Andy Tice reported that conference attendees participated in roundtable discussions giving members opportunity to share about their unique programs and supporting fundraising efforts.


"Conversation was enthusiastic," says Tice of the roundtable discussions, "generating a thought-provoking exchange of ideas between various clubs." See a summary of roundtable discussions on the District website.


Guests were also treated to Governor-Elect Herman Greenwood's "Catch a Rising Star" presentation, giving members an idea of what to expect during his upcoming year as Governor. The presentation highlighted opportunities to become involved in Optimism at the District level.


Finally, program chairs shared information about upcoming local events (see summarized information below), offering insight into the several Optimist programs that are open for local and district level participation.
