Happy New Year!
I salute all of you, wishing you health, happiness, and success in your leadership roles.
This morning, I enjoyed a phone chat with International President Ron Huxley of Southwestern Ontario, and received an inspiring email note from our Regional Vice President, Harry Margo of Michigan. I would like to echo the spirit of their words, in my message to you:
May you be able to establish and build very effective communications with the leaders of clubs in your Zones, so the two-way flow of information, and mutual encouragement, will strengthen the spirit of Optimism in your areas.
May you be able to experience, lead, and share exciting activities that provide enjoyment to the workers and to the youngsters and parents who participate in them.
May the members of the clubs be enthusiastic in their efforts, and their willingness to volunteer in these activities.
May you, and your club leaders, keep invigorated in carrying out your responsibilities.
May all of us feel rewarded in our efforts for Optimism, as we see the smiles on the faces of those we serve.
Yours in Optimism,
Governor Ted Simmonds email@example.com
