A new project for the Middleton Area Optimist Club

The Middleton Area Optimist Club has partnered with the Greater Middleton Parks and Recreation once again to bring a new activity to the growing community. The grand opening will take place on June 8, 2019, of the Middleton Optimist Club Disc Golf Course in Foote Park, Middleton, Idaho.

The Middleton Optimist Club Disc Golf Course was a passion for several members to develop a recreational opportunity for the community. It will launch with the first annual Disc Golf Tournament on opening day. Registration will take place at 11:00 a.m. and the tournament will begin with a shotgun start at 12:00 p.m.

Cost to participate is $20 per team. Prizes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. For more information, please contact the Middleton Area Optimist Club at its Facebook event page.

COERs are due soon!

Happy May Day!

The first day of May is a good day to remind all Optimist Clubs that they should be planning for succession. Who will lead the team come October 1?

As has been the practice for decades, Optimist Clubs are expected to hold their club officer elections in the spring of each year and to report their new officers to Optimist International by May 20.  This practice is called completing the COER - the club officer election report. It may be done online by logging in as a club officer to www.optimistleaders.org. Once a COER is completed, the officers-elect begin receiving special information from the District and Optimist International.

If your club holds their elections at a different time, please complete the COER as soon as possible using the method described above.

All officers-elect should plan to attend the PNW Optimist District Convention. Specialized training for their positions will be held at that time, but most importantly, newly elected officers will have the opportunity to meet others who are starting their positions at the same time, share stories and goals, and form a bond in community service. Now that's what being an Optimist is all about.
