The greatest gift of all


As Optimist Club members, we speak a lot about lending a helping hand to others, but we would be wise to remember those hands do so much more. Among other things, they help us tell stories with emphasis, make eating easier and allow us the wonderful sensation of touch. For the deaf and hard of hearing, they make communication possible.

Hands, or more aptly, a handshake, also allow us to pull others into our circle of influence and fellowship. Extend your handshake along with your help this year and you will give others the greatest gift of all: inclusion.

Happy 2012.
