OptiNews Member Issue

December 2014

Why not?

Fellow Optimists,

We missed it. International President Ken Garner declared the month of November as "an official time to THANK YOUR SPONSOR for opening a door to all of the tremendous benefits of being an Optimist Member."

But who's to say that November should get all the fun? In the spirit of keeping the ball rolling...

Thank you, Andy Tice, for welcoming me into the Plainfield Optimist Club as a new member of the community. The vision of this club is motivation enough, and the relationships certainly anchor it!

Remember what motivated you to join the club... then reach out and thank your sponsor today.
