The newsletter will be sent monthly.

As the organization nears the end of the third quarter of the Optimist year, our overseas Clubs are encouraged to look internally at the health of their Club.
- Are projects being planned and carried out?
- Does the membership roster contain people who really want to be a part of the Optimist Club?
- Are the Club's finances in good order?
The attention to these details now will enable your Club to work at its best level in the coming months. It also will help in the area of accepting new ideas.
"As we continue to move ahead, remember that we as an organization have to be open to new ideas and new ways to do things," said Optimist International President Jim Kondrasuk. "New Members help with that. But as the world changes, it is important to rethink the phrase 'We've always done it that way.'"
