community engagement – Thank you Optimists

Today, I had the opportunity to speak to a group of optimists.  The Optimist Club of Bismarck kindly accepted my request to speak to their group.  It went well for my first engagement as a speaker.

I spoke about our Family Voices of North Dakota organization.  I answered questions regarding special health care needs and our children.

The group was highly inquisitive, and I thoroughly enjoyed speaking there.  Next time, I won’t plan a lunch date for after the meeting, so I can partake of the food enjoyed by the club. That is a bonus.

Plus, I was given a Optimist Club Coaster as a gift for speaking.  Color me surprised.  I wasn’t expecting a gift, and was happy just for the opportunity to speak to their group.
