Week 49 Update, Optimist Club

Uncategorized No Comments

Happy Sunday, Optimists,

Here are just a few updates for our upcoming week.

I spoke with Connie Frida evening.  We are confirmed for the Cold Spring Inn for our Installation Banquet on Tuesday, Sept. 30.  Our social is scheduled for 5:30pm, with the dinner and program beginning at 6:00.  Information on our menu options and cost will come from the committee in the very near future. For now, please mark your calendars!

We have three applications for student interns for this fall.  Interviews with the three applicants will take place this week.  A few of us will be meeting with the interested students.

We have a meeting to finalize the Back to School/NOW meeting with the Whitewater School District this Wednesday.  If you are interested in making a dish to pass for the event, which is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 24 from 4:00pm – 5:30pm, please contact Jeanine.  Thank you to the 5-6 folks from our club who have already volunteered.  Members from the school district will also be contributing items for dinner.

Denise, Jan and I will be starting the planning for our Trivia Night, scheduled for Friday, Feb. 20 in the Hamilton Room.  As soon as the UW-W Student Club has their first meeting this week, we will also have a few students to work with on the co-sponsored event.

Our meeting this Tuesday will feature Youth of the Month, a representative from the UW-W Student Optimist Club, and a representative from Roberta’s Art Gallery.  Lunch will be provided by UW-W Catering this week since it is a Youth of the Month program.  Hope to see some of you on Tuesday at noon in UC 259A.  This will be our last noon meeting of the month.  Dave will be sending out a schedule for October in the near future.

Have a great week.  Let’s hope for some warmer weather again!

Kim 🙂

Good Evening Optimists,

I hope you enjoyed the spectacular weather this weekend.

Thank you to our football ticket takers on Friday night.  What a victory for our Warhawks.  We’re off to a great start for the 2014 season!

Thank you to the committee that is planning our installation celebration.  There will be an update at our Tuesday club meeting.  Information will also be sent out to the club members very soon.

Our club meeting this week will be in UC 259A.  Please remember to bring your own lunch.  Angie and I will be your guest speakers on our participation in the Yellowstone Travel Study experience.  We have some fun stories, nice photos and artifacts to share with the group–as well as an OI Foundation gift for one lucky winner!

We will be selecting a new intern for our club within the next two weeks.  Also, planning continues for our Back to School Rally/NOW Meeting for the Whitewater Unified School District on Sept. 24.  I hope that some of you will be able to join us for this gathering.  We have heard that at least 25 faculty/staff have already signed up for this meeting.

Board members, please remember that we have a joint board meeting this Tuesday from 5:30pm-7:00pm at Jessica’s. Thank you to all who have replied for the meeting.

See many of you soon,

Kim 🙂
