Jr. Optimists 2019-20 Leader Training

9:30am to 11:00am, Saturday, September 21, 2019

Location: Wexford A Rm., Costick Center, 28600 Eleven Mile Rd.

This is a kickoff meeting for Parents, Teachers Leaders and Optimist Advisers to begin the new school year and Jr. Optimist Club year.  The purpose of the meeting is to go over how to have a successful Club school year.

We are encouraging all past and new parent leaders, teachers and Optimist advisers to attend.  Ideally each club should strive to have 2 leaders so it creates balance to the leadership monthly.

We will hand out a Leader Training Guide 2019-20 and go over ideas to make the club a meaningful benefit and time well spent for the kids.  Sharing by past leaders is encouraged!

You will receive a calendar of events planned for the school year in the guide.

Please RSVP to Tom Neal at ttneal@sbcglobal.net to confirm who will be attending so we have enough materials.
