Subject: Cancellation of District 3rd Quarter Conference


Good afternoon WEMO Optimists,


I am writing the email that I did not want to have to write and I have procrastinated all morning to do so!


It is with much sadness and disappointment that I must inform everyone that the 3rd Qtr Conference has been cancelled.  Everyone on the planning committee agreed that we just could not take any chances and that we needed to heed on the side of caution.  I know we will all miss seeing each other and hopefully, that will make 4th qtr. that much better!!!!


As far as the Oratorical Regional contests are concerned, we are planning to hold them on the same dates as originally scheduled.  We will just be doing them as virtual contests, probably through ZOOM.  Theresa is currently working on putting all this together and more information will be coming as we get it all worked out.


We are in strange times and we have never been here before, so each decision is a new one.  And each decision brings new challenges.  Hang in there Optimists and I look forward to seeing EVERYONE in August for 4th Qtr. Convention (if not before).


Promise yourself to be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind!


Yours in Optimism,

Governor Sandi
