Optimist Club 2015-16, week of September 19, 2016

5:47 pm Uncategorized

Greetings Optimists,

Our next general member meeting will be tomorrow, Tuesday, September 20, 2016. The meeting will feature “Youth of the Month” with catered lunch at $7 for each club member. Speakers will be Mark Elworthy (New School District Administrator) and Nathan Jaeger (Business Manager) regarding the upcoming Whitewater Unified School District referendum.

 I’ll be bringing a guest/potential new member to our September 20 meeting. Will anyone else bring a guest? Let me know for catering purposes.

Planning for our installation banquet on Monday, September 26, 2016, is progressing. One thing to share/remind everyone who submitted their RSVP, we want the event to be fun and encourage you to wear beach-type attire. It will be a fun evening of celebration of the 2015-16 year and looking forward to the 2016-17 year.

The August 2016 Exec Board minutes have been uploaded to the web site.

The Trivia Night 2016 committee continues to meet regularly.

Current events needing helpers:

Warhawk Football Ticket Taking. There are still a few time slots (two?) 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.

*** Do you have a topic you would like to present to the club? Do you know someone who could speak to the club? Job related? Travel related? Sports related? Youth related? Let me know if you, or someone you know, would like to present. See the dates below where we need speakers. ***
