How one Optimist helps students express themselves

Here is a really hands-on activity for one dedicated Optimist in Mission, BC. Rhett Nicholson is the advisor to the JOOI Club sponsored by the Mission Optimist Club. Rhett and eleven JOOI Club members work together to write, design, and publish the OPTIMIX magazine.

The download is large - sorry about that - but with a little patience, you can see not only what is on the minds of teens and tweens today; but you can also see how they process the information through the graphic design and printwork that goes into just eight pages of the twenty-four page magazine. BTW, they also sell the advertising so they can afford to print and distribute the magazine at no charge.

Great job Rhett! Great job Mission! ^5 JOOI students!
