For 2018:

Welcome to the new year of GATEway Optimists! I'm excited to be your Activities Chair this year. The more activities our clubs do, small or large, the more the people of your communities know about Optimists and what we do to "Bring out the best in kids"!
Governor Mary would like each club to do one new project this year, "Added Dimensions of Service". When your club completes this new project, you will submit the attached form so that your club will receive a banner patch and be recognized at the District conference and in the District newsletter.
Also, this year, we are going to have a District wide "Day of Optimism". I will let you know when and what we are planning. This may be held on Optimist Day in February or during the week of service in March.
Each club needs to review its current service projects to see if they are still successful, meeting needs, or whether one needs to be updated or replaced with a new project.
There are so many national days or months for different things. I will email you what I've found for the next month to give you ideas for a club project.
When your club has a project, I would like to encourage you to post it with photos on your Facebook page. This is a great publicity tool to get the information out about the great things that your club does for your community.
