Sharing optimism as a philosophy of life

Shout outs and "atta boys" are such simple ways to recognize people for their actions.  I really enjoyed reading some of those notes of encouragement in the Alabama - Louisiana - Mississippi District Bulletin for October 2009.  (please scroll to page 2)

Listed as some examples of how clubs in the district were sharing Optimism as a philosophy of life were:
  • ALEXANDRIA participated in the National Hunting and fishing Day by cooking Hot Dogs for lunch.
  • ATHENS had their 28th annual Optimist Volley Ball Classic with teams from 12 schools.
  • BIRMINGHAM palticipated with Our Lady of Lourdes Labor Day Festival and they will receive some funds for their Cards for Kids project.
  • BIRMINGHAM WEST END had a NOW program and got five new members and were able to end the year increasing membership by five.
  • BOSSIER CITY presented their Respect For Law Award to City Marshall Johnny Wyatt for his outstanding job with internet safety.
  • HUNTSVILLE reported that Jim Roe and his committee completed the HEALS Clinic painting project.
  • JENNINGS members volunteered to answer telephones for the annual MDA Labor Day Telethon. MOBILE held their annual Youth of the Year banquet
  • MOBILE MID TOWN had a Officer of the Month program recognizing a local hero of the community.
  • PERDIDO BAY had avery successful 23rd annual Mullet Festival during the Labor Day Holiday. This is their biggest fundraising event.
  • TALLADEGA completed the 2008-09 Optimist year being Distinguished, a'first in the life of the club.
Kudos to District Bulletin editor and District S/T Harold Stratz for sharing the accomplishments of clubs in your district.
