Happy Fall to everyone and thank you for being a member of the Plainfield Optimist Club for another wonderful year. I am honored to be returning for another term as your Club President for 2020-2021.
Below are my goals for this year and also some needs that I see what the Club needs moving forward.
1. Maintain our programs and ensure that all the programs have directors for the upcoming year and the programs serve and recognize those that serve our youth.
2. Increase club members participation. We can accomplish this by inviting members to participate. This can be done by getting the information to our members and simply asking.
3. Look for new programs that serve the youth of Plainfield or those who also serve our youth. I will keep an open mind to any potential new programs our how to improve our current programs
4. Maintain our financial stability. Develop the sponsorship program. Look at ways to increase the revenue for fundraising (concessions). Looking for someone to work with our programs on sponsorship and overall Club sponsorship options.
If you have any ideas that you want to share with me or the entire board please send them my way.
