Be optimistic and serve

Happy Monday morning, Optimist Club members and friends.

The "share optimism" thought today comes from the official Facebook page for Junior Optimist Octagon International (JOOI). I thought it was a great way for Optimist Club members to start the week and I also hope that it sends a message to those leaders who are on their way to Milwaukee for the 94th Annual Optimist International Convention. It takes great vision and a positive attitude to lead our organization and we thank you for your dedication.

While on the JOOI Facebook page, I also learned that while at the International Convention the students will be doing a service project with Easter Seals of Southeast Wisconsin . The Easter Seals mission statement is "To create a community that promotes health, happiness, independence and safety by providing individuals with disabilities increased opportunities for access, inclusion and choice." That sounds like a perfect opportunity for an Optimistic partnership. Why not visit with the Easter Seals in your community and see if there is an opportunity for your Optimist Club to provide a needed service?
