As we tee off for another year of Optimism, I want to thank everyone in our CENON district for the honour of being your Governor for 2016-2017.
Our theme this year is “Driving Optimism Forward” and I truly believe that as a team, we can spread the word about who we are and what we do. Our goal this year is to make our clubs the service clubs that people will want to join. We all know that we bring out the best in youth, ourselves and our communities and I ask all of you to help spread this message. Remember all you have to do is “Just Ask” everyone you come in contact with and we will continue to grow and be able to help more youth in our communities.
Just recently, I had a meeting with my L.G.s and committee chairs and the resounding theme was we are a family and this has helped us all to weather various storms in our lives. Let us make sure to add to our family in the coming year.
We will be having golf related themes and service projects at our quarterly conferences and I ask you all to participate and enjoy the fun. There will be bonus A&A points for your clubs as well as free registration for the next 1/4 conference if you participate in the CCOF games. So come out and enjoy the fun.
There has been a challenge issued on the Friday night between me and our JOI Governor Mathew about who is the best bowler and I ask all of you to come out and cheer me on since I need all the help I can get. Word is our Sect. Treasurer Denise is taking bets and actually cheering against me and I thought she was on my side.
Yours In Optimism,
