4th Quarter Wishes

We still have the full month of June to complete our 3rd Quarter Wishes and we have accomplished much.  We are currently number one in our region but still need much more to accomplished.  It is my utmost wish that by the time we have the 99th Annual Convention in Ottawa, Canada our beloved South Texas District will be in the positive in membership. This goal is very attainable as we only need 14 new members.  I will continue to encouraged the Clubs to have NOW programs and promote the recruitment of EDUCATORS.

As we leave the 3rd Quarter let me recap the happenings that recently occurred We met in Kerrville, Texas and we were received with a beautiful reception planED by Zone 4 under the direction of Lt. Governor Fay Hopkins.  Many Thanks go to Woody and Kathy Woodruff for been gracious enough to dedicate their time and energy in being hosts to our special guest, Vice President Ron Benson our Southwest Region ambassador from Optimist International  

Saturday morning training was prepared by one of the first ladies of Optimist International and currently a member of the Optimist International Foundation, Jan Oord Graves.  Her chosen topics were well received and well attended by our members.  Our afternoon, began we the much-awaited Oratorical Contests.  Many thanks to our chairs, Nancy Mason and Amberly Diaz for providing us with great Contestants that the made the decisions of the Judges super difficult.  The competing students were definitely the leaders of tomorrow.

The rest of the Conference was culminated by a banquet honoring our special guest Ron Benson where he delivered an enthusiastic and energetic speech that reminding us the reason why we are optimists.  TO PROVIDE SERVICE FOR THE KIDS.

As your Governor, I really appreciated TEAM 2017-2018 for supporting our endeavor and especially for their attendance.  With the Exception of two all the Lt. Governors were present and address the needs and accomplishments of their zones, thank you all for your help and let’s finish strong while having fun and not take ourselves seriously.  Let’s continue to keep our Beloved District on top of ALL OF OPTIMIST INTERNATIONAL LETS GO BEYOND THE BOUNDARIES
