Each quarter there will be a theme that challenges us to take optimistic action. How will you and your club lean into the Quarter 1 theme: Activate Optimism. Will you celebrate the accomplishments of your club and members? Will you address member concerns with openness and collaborate on solutions? Will you recognize special moments like birthdays, anniversaries, a promotion, or a retirement? Will you be of support in difficult times? Will you listen to new ideas and be open to trying a new way of doing things? Will you invite people to experience Optimism in action at social and service events.
Each quarter there will be a fun, informative, and engaging gathering of Optimists from across the district. You’ll want to join us Q1 Nov. 10,11 in Bay City, Q2 Feb. 3 on Zoom, Q3 May 4 in Battle Creek, and Q4 Aug. 16-18 in Ann Arbor. Be prepared to be inspired, encouraged, recognized, and connected.
I wish each of you all the best as we begin a new Optimist year. May you find your passion in service to youth and community and may your spirit be filled with hope and the belief in a positive future.
Michigan District Governor
