Weekly Update for October 11, 2010

 

Let’s hear about the big fall event!

 

If you were at this weekend’s Parallel District Conference in Branson, Optimist International hopes you found it to be a “star-studded” event!
If you’re headed to the PDC in Asheville, North Carolina, this coming weekend, don’t forget to take notes and pictures so Optimists back home can see just what it was all about.
Feel free to send great stories and photos to communications@optimist.org. They may be used in future issues of the magazine, newsletters and e-mails.
If these two PDCs don’t fit into your schedule, don’t worry – there are five more after this! To see the schedule and read all about each event, visit www.optimist.org/pdc.
