MORE THAN a hundred Optimists from across the Caribbean are expected to bring their special brand of positive living to the tourist town of Ocho Rios, Jamaica this weekend, August 24 – 26. The Optimists will be in town for the 21st Convention of the Caribbean District when delegates will, among other things, review the administrative year of Governor Dwight Phillips and install the 2012-2013 team of Lynden Buchanan.
The weekend is filled with possibilities for delegates to not only grow in Optimism but also have great fun and fellowship. The Governor's reception kicks off the weekend on Friday night with a celebratory Jamaica 50 package of entertainment; and among the highlights for Saturday are the training sessions to be carried out by internationally recognized trainers including Past International Vice President Jim Oliver. The convention will be held at the Sunset Jamaica Grande Resort & Spa. Optimists and friends who cannot make the Convention may join us for a live stream at http://www.livestream.com/oicaribbeandistrict. Caribbean Optimists, thinking only of the best; working only for the best; and expecting only the best.
