Making friends and starting Optimist Clubs with Facebook

Meet the Progressive Optimist Club of Barbados.  This smiling group of Optimists are part of one of the newest clubs in the Optimist International family.  Welcome!

The Progressive Optimist Club of Barbados was officially organized on May 27, 2010.  One of the tools they used to bring the people together was Facebook.  They discussed and voted on the name of the club, they informed potential members of the informational meeting dates and kept signed members on track for attending, promoting and making a difference in the community.

Our social networking tools like Facebook are the new way to stay connected. Once you make a page, create  an event, and invite people to join, all you have to do is keep them and the page updated.  People will choose whether to "like" your page or not.  If you have a Facebook ID, you can see their wall and at this link.
