Dear   :

As Optimists, we work together to serve more youth and communities, and grow personally through our service. Optimists work each day to make the world a better place - one child and one community at a time. We must remember how beneficial the Optimist International organization and the Optimist philosophy is to our Clubs, our communities, and to the youth we serve.

To thank each Optimist Club for their service, Optimist International is offering the "Season of Giving" to our Optimist Clubs. It is our hope that by waiving the New Member Fee for all new Members added between December 1, 2016 and January 31, 2017, it will be easier for Optimists and Optimist Clubs to give the gift of Optimism to others who share our passion for helping children. In turn, it is our hope that this will strengthen our Clubs and will result in Optimists serving even more children.   

This is the "Year of the Honor Club" - Together We Can! Together We Will! 

Thank you for the gift of your friendship

Jim Kondrasuk
2016-17 Optimist International President
