New Optimist Clubs targeted for the Seattle area

Governor Ed Murphy says, "We need Optimist Clubs in Seattle!"

The Seattle-Tacoma-Bellevue metropolitan statistical area is home to 3.3 million people and 3 Optimist Clubs. With that kind of data, Optimist International has offered to help generate excitement for new club building in the Seattle area. 

The plan: Optimist International President Danny Rodgers, Optimist International President-elect Jack Creswell, and international committee members Essie Johnson, Mark Weinsoff, Jim Oliver and Sue Creswell will present a week-long new club building seminar on January 17-21, immediately before the Second Quarter District Meeting on January 21-22 in the Seattle area. 

During this time six communities will be targeted for new Optimist Club growth. The core piece of training is walking and talking in neighborhoods and businesses to invite people to an informational meeting in the evening where they will learn more about the potential for community service that an Optimist Club offers. 

At least six people are needed to commit to follow up with the potential new growth communities for six weeks following this conference and then on a quarterly basis for one year once a new club is started.
