Hello, Fabulous Optimist Club of Littleton Members!
Can you believe that it is March already? As we head into spring, get ready to bring out the best in youth! We’ve got Essay Contest, Oratorical Contest, the Know Brainer, Youth Appreciation and don’t forget BEE Awards! There’s plenty to keep us all busy for the next three months so get ready to have some fun with the kids!
The The Visioning group has wrapped up the first phase of its strategic plan and they have put together five goals: 1. Recruitment of Younger Members 2. Retention of Current Members 3. Communication and Technology 4. Fundraising 5. Collaboration and Partnerships The committee has identified a focus committee of Jerry Krause, Hank Wyeno, Dick Quinlan, John McComas, Darrell Schulte, Beth Best and Connie Ackerman to start planning the “how” for each of these goals. All of you can expect us to be asking for your ideas, thoughts and concerns as we push our way through this process. You may even be given a little homework! Our smaller committee has been formed to help us stay on task at meetings but the real work will be done outside our meetings as we collect our data, explore the ideas and get your feedback.
Our club thrives on active participation and communication. Let’s continue to work together to bring out the best in our youth, our community and ourselves! Conni
