Presidential Thoughts
 on Fundraising
The Academy Optimist Club's Football "FundCrazr" is selling tickets for $10 each to raise money for  our youth programs. 

3 teams per week from  15 Oct-12 Nov  (5 games) are listed on each ticket. Out of the pool of tickets our club sells, the ticket that has the highest points wins $100, 2nd highest $40, 3rd $30, 4th $10 and the lowest point total wins a prize of $20.  Sorry, you can't pick your teams because this is a fundraiser sweepstakes & not gambling or raffle which are controlled by state laws.

You all could each buy one, then have a football watching party each of those 5 weeks! The company that we've coordinated through sends you the check.  
(Helps us all in the math!)

Please let us know if you or your friends are interested.

Thank you,
Theresa Null

Optimist Creed
Promise Yourself
To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Getting ready for the 50s, 60s and 70s at the CO/WY District Convention in Breckenridge, CO. Our very own Larry Brown won the men's best costume. What a great time! The purple pants did the trick!
