Proud to be an Optimist Day

The Caribbean District and the Pacific Northwest District of Optimist International have proclaimed today, March 27, to be Proud to be an Optimist Day. Optimist Club members are declaring their pride on Facebook and other social media platforms by changing their profile picture to the Proud to be an Optimist badge. (right)

Additionally, the district organizers have asked their members to wear their Optimist Club apparel to work today and to take extra time to talk about their Optimist Club's projects.

The best way to increase awareness of the good that Optimist Clubs do is to talk about it. I think that's a lesson that we learned yesterday when when we discussed, "What's Your Story?" Of course, it might be uncomfortable for some to bring up the subject of their Optimist Club first. This passive promotion will hopefully encourage others to ask questions in order to learn more.

If you are an Optimist Club member, please join us in the Proud to be an Optimist project.

If you aren't a member, why don't you consider joining us? It's a good thing to do. Find a club near you now.
