Governor's Message - September 9, 2016

Carol Morack


Hello PSWD Optimists

I would like to take this moment to thank you all for supporting me as your governor and for working as a team. It has been an experience and a joy that I will never forget. I am grateful for each and every one of you that has worked hard this year to make a difference in the district and for being part of the TEAM. There are certain people that I need to thank because without them our district meetings would not have been as successful as they were.

Thank you to the Hospitality Committee: Monika & John Herbic, Lee & Sheree Underwood, and Danny Ruiz. You all made the Hospitality Room a big success. It started our Friday’s off with everyone enjoying the food, drinks and just being together. It brought back memories of the way our Hospitality Room used to be. For all of you, I am so grateful.

Thank you to our Lt. Governors for their support and hard work. I want to thank you for taking care of the clubs and bringing them the information that all clubs need to have as a zone.

Thank you to all our Chairs. Thank you for your support and the responsibility it takes for being a chairperson. You made a big difference in our district.

A special “Thank You” to all my Trainers who trained a workshop during each of the district meetings. Your workshops were all informative and had that special touch that made everyone that attended more knowledgeable about the workshop they were attending. The district became more successful by the way you conducted your workshops.

Thank you to my advisors Gerri O’Meara and Ralph Perez. Your suggestions and advice were so much appreciated. I have learned so much from both of you. You made many of my decisions that much easier to make because of your sage input and counsel.

Thank you to our past governors for all your advice. A special “Thank You” to Mark Weinsoff and Jim Oliver for all the help and advice you have given me. No matter what time I called both, you were always there for me.

Thank you to our Finance Chair and Committee. You made sure to keep me focused on the money I spent as governor so that we could keep the district always at a plus for every quarterly.

Thank you to the District Secretary and the District Treasurer for keeping the minutes and the financial records in a way that all could understand it.

We still have 22 days left. We still have the opportunity to make Distinguished. Let us all come together to bring in just ONE more member each so we can all be proud of what we have done together as a district and as a team. Don’t think that we don’t have enough time but look at it as if we still DO have the time to make Distinguished. All we need are at least 53 new members to make Distinguished. That’s not a lot of people. If we all just bring in ONE more member, we can make it happen. Let’s never forget that what we do in this district, we do it together because we are a TEAM. As a TEAM, we can make a difference in our clubs, communities, and ourselves. The time is NOW where we can show everyone how to make this really happen. In Optimism, we can do it!

Always Optimistic,

Carol Morack

Governor PSWD
