This Christmas, PIP Ron Thompson is The Optimist

pnw optimist clubsLinda and Dick Disney hosted the West Tacoma Optimist Club Annual Christmas Potluck on December 17, 2017. Optimist friends came together to share dinner, beverages, and stories of Christmas past and present.

In sharing with the giving season, everyone brought a stuffed animal or toy that will be given to the Tacoma Toy Rescue Mission. One member told a story of how as a child, her family found themselves in an unfortunate situation and a group, much like the Optimist Club was there to provide the one and only present the children received that year. She said she can truly feel the joy and appreciation that any youngster feels when they receive these small tokens for they show that someone is thinking of them and someone cares.

Moving on with a bit of fun and fellowship, also as the season demands, the group was led in a Christmas carol challenge with Past Optimist International President (PIP) Ron Thompson being declared the king of carols.

For his victory, we believe it was fitting, that the Optimist received a hearty toast with The Optimist beer.

Optimist Clubs serve their communities in many different ways. With a focus on projects that bring out the best in youth, Optimist Club members tirelessly share their positive thoughts and actions to make their cities better places for all to live.

We know that when we do good, we feel good. We give our time, talent, and treasure selflessly, and on occasion we also celebrate one another and the friendships that we have made and will make in our service to others. That's what being an Optimist Club member is all about.

Please consider joining an Optimist Club so that you may feel that connection too.
