A recap of Ronald McDonald house, the Halloween Party, and the Trop was given. Those who are interested in the Hard Rock Casino trip will meet there at 2:00 PM on Sunday, November 14th in the lobby area.

A great big "Thank You" to every one of you for a fantastic weekend at the 1st Quarter Conference in Cape Canaveral. We have had great reviews and comments from the attendees and it was due in large part to your participation and enthusiasm. The energy and excitement from everyone was infectious and made the whole weekend special. Let's take that energy and make sure that this district is one of Danny's Awesome Achievers. Grab a couple of Optimists and find a new member to add to your club. Please get the message out to every club you come in contact with, whether as a member, a club officer or a Lt. Governor. I'm looking forward to a fantastic year with you! Governor Daniel Rich
  • 5. ZONE 09 OPTIMISTS CLUBSZONE 09 OPTIMISTS CLUBSZONE 09 OPTIMISTS CLUBSZONE 09 OPTIMISTS CLUBS At the recent zone meeting, we discussed another zone yard sale to be held in January in Ric & Betty Jo’s Club 28 parking lot. If your club is interested, please let me know so that we know when and how to plan for this event. It would be the same as the last one. Each club would have their own personal section and be responsible only for their goods. The last one was a big success. The only cost to your club would be a portion of the ad cost, which would be divided by the number of clubs participating. Even if you are not interested, please reply so that we know how many clubs will be participating. Of course, each club is expected to clean up their mess after the sale. It is expected of us to leave the parking in a clean condition. They do have a dumpster but we cannot expect to use it to dispose of our left overs, as they use it for their business. For what it’s worth, the Hospice Store in Disston Plaza will accept many items. Thanks, Vi Hayworth Chairperson
  • 6. The Halloween PartyThe Halloween PartyThe Halloween PartyThe Halloween Party Saturday, October 30th from 2 pm to 4 pm was the Halloween party at the Salvation Army Church for the kids from the Children's Village and Sallie House. Everyone had a blast! There was a costume contest, face painting, cake walk, dancing, games and of course lots of pizzas, which were provided by Papa John's. We would like to thank the Sunset and Sunday Brunch Club for their donation of $100 each! It was very much appreciated. The Halloween party was a great success, just take a look at the pictures!
  • 7. 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.
