Marching with optimism

Many Optimist Club members and their respective Optimist Clubs are thinking about the Centennial. As Optimist International celebrates its first 100 years of service, everyone wants to get in on the party.

We shared this photo on Facebook (post embedded below) today as a Throwback Thursday memory, and wow, has it created some interest, including International President Rebecca Butler Mona who said, "Love this! Definitely worth seeing if it could be done again... anyone know how this was arranged in 1973? #Optimist100 #PromiseYourself"

So we're asking colleagues, friends, and alumni near and far, does your alma mater want to show some Optimist pride? Let us know what it might take to get a college band marching with optimism.

We'd sure love to share a new marching band photo for the Centennial Celebration!
