  1. 1. Downtown Optimist Club A periodic newsletter of the A periodic newsletter of the St. Petersburg -- Downtown Optimist Club St. Petersburg Downtown Optimist Club North Florida District, Zone 9, Club #60447 North Florida District, Zone 9, Club #60447 August 3, 2010 Editor: Sharon Dennany, telephone 919-274-1311 or email: shar1558denn@yahoo.com Today’s meeting at Tick Tock… We had a decent turn out, including two new members. Nancy Reeser, who is a dual member (Breakfast Club) and Leslie Green. Welcome to the Downtown Club Nancy and Leslie! New club shirts were picked out for the coming year. Royal Blue was the chosen color with or with out pocket and a screen print of the club logo. They are $15 each and could be ready by October. There was some discussion about selling more raffle tickets at First Friday, prior to the convention. So far we have sold around 200 tickets. Everyone was reminded of the Zone 9 Installation Banquet on September 23rd. Social hour begins at 6:30 pm and dinner at 7:00 pm. Incoming Governor Daniel Rich will be there. Lee suggested revising the timing of our fund raisers. Possibly using a schedule such as raffle tickets in the spring, Trop concession in the summer and First Friday in the fall. He also brought us up to date on how much we have raised working the Trop concession. We are up to $675 so far. Not too shabby! things in life that are most valuable Love Family & Friends Kindness
  2. 2. Joke… Joke It’ It’s My Birthday! The famous Olympic skier Picabo August 7 – Betty Jo Carvalis Street (pronounced Peek-A-Boo) is August 8 – Carol Andorfer not just an athlete...she is now a August 13 – Carol Sirrianna nurse currently working at the August 27 – Irene Roberts Intensive Care Unit of a large metropolitan hospital. She is not permitted to answer the hospital telephones. It caused too much confusion when she would answer the phone and say, Picabo, ICU.

  3. 3. Convention… North Florida District 2010 Convention Even though I was only able to attend the afternoon general session on Saturday and the banquet I do have some things to report about the convention. First, I would like to say thank you to Governor Ric and Betty Jo for doing an outstanding job. It takes a lot of time, energy and man power to put together a conference/convention four times a year. It’s no easy task. Thank you for your hard work and dedication from the Downtown Optimist Club! Our guest speaker for the afternoon was Cara Smith from Camp Boggy Creek in Eutis, FL. Camp Boggy Creek, Florida’s only Hole in the Wall Camp, is a year-round camp for children ages 7 through 16 who have chronic or life threatening illnesses.

Camp Boggy Creek is constructed to the standards of the Americans with Disabilities Act, and is air-conditioned and heated. The camp is accredited by the highly respected American Camp Association. There mission is to enrich the lives of children who have chronic or life threatening illnesses by creating camping experiences that are memorable, exciting, fun, empowering, physically safe and medically sound.

  7. 7. Downtown Optimist Club of St. Petersburg 3558 100th Terrace Pinellas Park, FL 33782-4100 The Optimist Creed Promise Yourself - To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet. To make all your friends feel that there is something in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own. To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile. To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
