They say time flies when you’re having fun and these past nine months have been full of lots of that!  They also say time has a way of getting away from you – and I hope that is not the case with you though Lewis Carroll’s writing of “the hurrier I go,  the behinder I get” seems to be bouncing around in my brain!  All kidding aside, the district is just over 3 months away from the end of this optimist year.  Club officer elect reports have been coming in and I would encourage your club to get it in if it hasn’t already.  There are also a few days left on the deal for educators  to pay $30 and be covered as a member through 31 March 2018.   And a reminder that OI elections close 30 June!    

By now, you also should have received your copy of the Voice with the registration for the 4th quarter convention in Houston.  Lots of training and district business will be packed into that weekend.  Plus having OI President Jim Kondrasuk with us for the weekend will be a nice bonus.

So take a breath then take look at the Honor Club requirements and see how your cub is doing.  Make sure dues are current, get started on the President’s Pride Report, and select a person to honor for the year.  Make that donation to OIF!

And enjoy the summer!  

Optimist Strong!
