Optimist Club 2015-16, week of August 15, 2016

5:27 pm Uncategorized

Greetings Optimists,

Our next general member meeting will be August 16 at 12 Noon, in UC 261. Our speaker with be Traci Wilson, updating us about W3 (Working for Whitewater’s Wellness).


Once the officers/board members for 2016-17 are voted on, an announcement will be sent out through the various community publicity channels announcing the board and that the club is continuing to serve the community AND that the club welcomes new members.


Current events needing helpers:

NFL “FUND CRAZR” RAFFLE TICKETS!! We are now selling the final 13 of 200 total tickets for this year’s NFL Fund Crazr raffle.


Please return any money for sold tickets, ticket stubs, and any unsold tickets to me by August 18!  If you can’t sell all the tickets you presently have, I will be able to give them to other club members who have “sold out” their own set(s) of tickets. All sold ticket stubs and unsold tickets must be returned to the SWIS District before August 28. Selling 200 tickets will probably net the club $2,400. If you haven’t bought one for yourself yet, contact me to do so. There are about 10 club members who could simply buy one ticket each and we would be out of tickets.


Warhawk Football Ticket Taking. There are still some time slot needing workers. Check the Google spreadsheet, “2016 Football Ticket Taking,” for the last few remaining slots. Hopefully, you can use the link in the spreadsheet title in the previous sentence to edit the spreadsheet and add you name in the appropriate cells. If you have trouble entering your name, let me know and I’ll help.
