Yes, I Can

captain i can pnw optimist clubs
Governor Bruce and Judy Gilbertson traveled to Ottawa, Ontario for the 100th Optimist International Convention July 8-10, 2018.

This annual event welcomed Optimist Club members and Optimist District leaders from 23 countries around the world. This year, they were joined by Captain I Can.

With a Jamaican accent, the Robot Superhero was there to encourage the assembly to never give up, to accomplish their goals, achieve their purpose, and to help others reach their goals as well.

The goal of every Optimist International District is always to reach Distinguished. In order for the PNW District to do that this year, we need every Optimist Club member to say, "Yes, I can. Together, we can!"

Join the Captain, the Governor, and your fellow Optimist Club members by promising to make your Optimist Club an Honor Club and thereby ensuring the PNW District's return to Distinguished District status.

Your individual goal is to sponsor one new member to your Optimist Club. Can you do it?
