Oklahoma Tornado Relief Efforts


May 22, 2013 -- The Optimist International organization and its Members were deeply saddened to hear of the loss of life and devastation caused by Monday’s tornado in Oklahoma.  Optimists would like to extend their heartfelt condolences to the victims and families during this trying time.  Optimist Clubs and Members are encouraged to help with relief effort by donating to the American Red Cross or other relief agencies.  Our deepest sympathies go out to all those whose lives have been affected.
