Our Recent Meeting Guests

01-05-23 Meeting

We had guest speaker Luisa Solorzano who runs The Clubhouse, which a business in Mesilla with batting cages (www.theclubhouse575.com, www.facebook.com/theclubhouse575).

 

Luisa's son, Steve Solorzano, is coached by our Optimist friend, Gil Padilla, coach of Las Cruces High. It was a great meeting with Luisa talking about how she and her husband got into the batting cage business (including softball), then Gil talking about coaching Steve, then Steve talking about his love of baseball.

The 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.

The Optimist Creed was first published by Christian Larson in 1912 and adopted (in a shortened version) by Optimist International in 1922.

Our Purpose

To develop optimism as a philosophy of life utilizing the tenets of the Optimist Creed; to promote an active interest in good government and civic affairs; to inspire respect for the law; to promote patriotism and work for international accord and friendship among all people; to aid and encourage the development of youth, in the belief that the giving of one’s self in service to others will advance the well-being of humankind, community life and the world.
