Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father you know we feel great being called an Optimist, but to be pointed out that we are the best , is a dream come true. We give thanks for all the talent You have gathered under the Centerville Noon Optimist name. To the participation of the members in all of our endeavors and the extra effort of the leadership. We are truly blessed. For a moment let us be proud and be a beacon to those who follow. Lord, may we always
remember that we are number one because we love what we do and may we continue continue to be Your hands and heart in all our endeavors.  AMEN!

Chris McAlpine, Club President-elect spoke also about the Optimist Convention, he learned that CNO is an amazing club with all that we do, and about  some grants that are available from the Optimist Foundation.
