As our first quarter starts to wind down and we get ready to enter the Christmas season with our friends and families, I want to say how much
Linda and I have enjoyed attending zone meetings and club functions. Every where we have been we have received warm welcomes and have had the pleasure of hearing great stories about all of the Central Ontario District (CENON) clubs helping youth in their communities.
I am very pleased with the growth in membership we are experiencing this year and I know that we can keep the momentum going throughout the year. At the present time we are leading in the Northeast region and for that I thank you.
What better gift can we give this season to the youth in our communities than getting more members which means more children being served. Remember the more smiles we can put on children's faces the better the world will be. This is such a great time to recruit new members with the incentives that are in place, “The Season of Giving,” where Optimist International (O.I.) will waive the new member fee until Jan 2017 The, ”30 under 30,” membership incentive for members under 30 years of age. If you sign a new member and bring them to the next District conference (Feb 4th) you will get a free registration for yourself as sponsor.
In closing I want to thank each and every one for a great start to our year,keep doing all the great projects you have for the children and from
Linda and I Merry Christmas and Health Happiness and Optimism in the New Year.
Linda and Mac Rumble,
