SWIS Club Services Program:
As members we all share in the responsibility to make our efforts to provide service and growth to our community, our youth, our members and even ourselves.
We have asked everyone to only delete a member when we have a new member to replace the deletion. It seems you buy into this idea because, the SWIS district is currently only a few members down. I AM SO VERY PROUD OF YOU!!!! You have taken care of necessary deletions and have focused on spreading service and growth by adding new members.
We have a responsibility to:
1) Lead our organization with vision and passion.
2) Pay our bills on time.
3) File all of our forms on time.
4) Grow in Membership and Projects.
Well, this leads me to a very important point that I want to make: PROMISE YOURSELF, To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. Encourage your friends to grow as individuals, accept a challenge once in a while, and share your passion for the goals we have in the Optimist Creed. Encourage them to accept a club position, a district position, perhaps Lt. Governor, involvement in district committees or even being Governor some day.
Join in congratulating our newest club, the New Glarus Area Optimist Club who had their Charter Banquet on January 28.
Club Services are all around us. As Governor Jeff asked us: BE VISIBLE, SHOW OUR PRIDE. JUST ASK someone else to help with our goals to keep our community strong by helping our youth to succeed and grow by being a member.
RENEW, REFRESH, and REVITALIZE. That is what Club Services and our Clubs are all about.
Show our passion; be proud to be an optimist!!
