Message from President, Jan Palmer:
Hello fellow Optimist. I want to introduce myself as your new President this year. First, I am very excited to see what we can accomplish during a very different year. I have lived in Ashland since March of 2017. I love this town and have my middle son Chris and his family here. I spent over 23 years working for the Department of Corrections as a Licensed Counselor setting up and managing treatment programs for sex offenders. Retiring in 2011 I provide treatment for special needs adults as well as being an approved provider for treatment of sex offenders. I have four children and seven grandchildren which are the lights of my life.
My goal for this year is to get members active in our club. I would love to meet each of you. We are meeting the first and third Saturday of the month with breakfast at 8 am. Right now, we are not having speakers but plan to do this in the future.
Because there is no Bingo, we are having a wreath fundraiser. Please show the attached flier to your friends and businesses associates. We make a bit over $10.00 per wreath sold on the Local Purchase Only wreath for $25 at the top. We hope this could become an annual event. I need your input and help to make this fundraiser a success. And we have a fantastic Spooktacular planned, which you can get more information about on the Ashland Optimist Foundation Facebook page. It will be different but so much fun for our community. If you have ideas for other activities, speakers and events please let us know. My phone number is 573-268-5919 or email me at email@example.com. I look forward to meeting each of you very soon. Jan Palmer
