Early mornings are for Optimists and other times are too

Did you know that the Oregon City Optimist Club meets at 6:30 a.m. every Tuesday morning? The West Tacoma Optimist Club and Hillsboro Optimist Club meet at 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday morning, the Meridian Optimist Club meets at 7:00 a.m. on Wednesday morning, and the Beaverton Optimist Club meets at 7:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.

I think that some of our most successful Optimist Clubs are early-risers and they honor their commitment to their communities to serve by showing up for the programs and fellowship that make their service complete.

Perhaps that is a piece missing from our membership puzzle. Many have forgotten how important the regular meeting is to the success of their club and the Optimist International organization. Lives are busier, commuting times are longer, the ability to make excuses is more readily acceptable. We used to say that busy people make the best Optimist Club members because they know how to budget their time. I think Optimist Club members make time for the much-needed break that a club meeting brings. It restores their positive feelings and helps them to share optimism with others.

Please watch the Optimist Story from Mike Novak, Governor, Indiana South District - Optimist International and learn why the 6:00 a.m. Optimist Club meeting became a regular activity in his life and then please find an Optimist Club near you and put its meeting on your calendar as a weekly event.
