Optimist Creed

Promise Yourself

To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet.
To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

Our dinner meetings are held the second and fourth Mondays of each month with social starting at 6:00 PM and the meeting at 7:00 PM at The Tap House Grill, 123 Washington St. in Oswego. We invite you to experience the club firsthand. Board meetings are held the first Monday of each month at various Board Member homes.
