Gov. David Osborne
A Message from Dave Osborne, 2016 - 2017 Indiana South District Governor
One definition of BELIEVE is to have confidence in the truth, the existence, or the reliability of something, although without absolute proof that one is right in doing so: Only if one believes in something can one act purposefully. We began our journey together on October 1 by beginning to IMAGINE. We then began to DREAM. Now I am asking you TO BELIEVE. If we all believe in something, we can act purposefully. How do we do that. We recruit new members to our clubs. By getting new members, we strengthen our club, bring new ideas, bring in new energy and most importantly, serve more KIDS.
We are half way through this Optimist year. This is the year of the Honor Club. Each club should be striving to reach this very important goal. Not just for the honor but more importantly to use it to market your Club. It is much easier to get someone to join your club if they see the Club as being a Club that is vibrant, growing, and active.
I ask you to look all around you and look at the people. Are they a member of your Club? If not, ask them! Do not think about whether they would make a good member. If you do, you may miss someone who could be the 2nd best member of your Club; with you being the 1st.
The youth of THE Indiana South District deserve, need, and want to be served by Optimist. It is our job to make that happen!
I BELIEVE, DO YOU?
3rd District Conf.
