A great number of Optimist Clubs hold Easter Egg Hunts and although Christmas is only 10 day past, believe it or not, Easter will be here before you know it.
And then there are all kinds of regular activities that Optimist Clubs host in between the major Optimist International events. For example, in addition to their regular programs, the Meridian Optimist Club has a junior rifle program that meets weekly through the spring and the Middleton Area Optimist Club hosts bingo once a month, every month. Other clubs have their favorite ongoing activities as well including meeting every week to share fellowship and learn about their communities with informative programs. Yes, Optimist Clubs are a vital part of our lives and bring color to the places where we live.
That's why it's good to come together every so often with other Optimist Club members to share our enthusiasm. This year, the PNW District will host three regional meetings that are designed to do just that.
The regional meetings will allow Optimist Club members to share the success stories of our local clubs and provide advice and guidance for assessing old programs and adopting new programs. It will also offer information that your club needs to know for the scholarship contests, new membership growth, using websites effectively and gaining publicity for your Optimist Club and projects.
