Optimist Club 50th anniversary idea

Here is a great idea that gives you something to think about doing today.

The Optimist Club of Freehold, New Jersey is celebrating their 50th Anniversary. In honor of this glorious occasion, they are looking for fifty people to share their stories of how Optimism has touched or influenced their lives. They are especially seeking past oratorical and essay contest winners, safety fair participants and scholarship recipients. I can't wait to see the results!

The action item for your Optimist Club to think about doing today: keep records and invite your past participants back to the club to talk about their experiences. Allow them to tell you about where they have gone and what they have done. After all, these are potential members for your Optimist Club. They know how Optimist Clubs make a difference in the lives of others and when they are ready to join a service organization, they will most likely think of giving back to the organization that helped them.

Good record-keeping helps you regularly celebrate your Optimist Club and the success of your friends, beneficiaries and colleagues.
