A young Optimist Adriana
Stirred our souls
With a voice so fine
It was more than a 'feeling good' start
To a day that was truly fun
Filled with passion and sensitivity
Fellowship and sincerity.
Our children need us -
Fostering a child is one great way.
Service is still relevant -
Societies fail if we do not rise today
For tomorrow's better
We must as Optimists show we care
To listen, to respect, counsels Firhana.
What a JOOI filled time to be
Gathered together for introspection
To remind ourselves of a philosophy
That teaches us always to do the best, we can
Produce more and more brightness
In and for all our lives
Try hope, optimism, yes, positivity!
Step by Step... moving onward and upward.
Thanks to all seven clubs of zones 12 and 13, their presidents and secretary-treasures, and especially, Lieutenant Governors Patricia and Margaret. You all did an awesome job in front and behind the scenes. The first quarter Barbados meeting will not soon be forgot.A lot of opportunity for fellowship was created. So too opportunities for dealing with issues of importance to the district. GA Barry and JOOI Co-chairs in Barbados, Optimist Ann and Optimist Yvette, you guys are making such an impact on the young people of our region.
Past International Vice Presidents Carol Haynes and Adrian Elcock as well as IPG Nutilia Simon, the district can only be better with your support. Members do value your contribution and we hope you will continue to be there for all Optimists.
Big Ups to Governor Barbara and District Secretary-Treasurer Jason. It was a weekend of sharing, engagement and clean lively humor to which you all added your bit of special touch.
