Optimist Club 2014-15, week of June 8

Greetings Optimist!!

The Fishing Derby was this past Saturday at Cravath Lake Park. Thanks to Al & Joyce Hutchinson, Rick & Jeanine Fassl, Greg Stewart, Joe Lynch, Sue Hiscox, and Linda Kinson for organizing and/or assisting. The turnout of kids was smaller than last year but the blue gill fish were biting so it was fun for the anglers who came out to join us. I posted a few pictures on the Facebook page and will attempt to post more pictures this week on the web site. Thanks to Greg Stewart for sending me some of the photos he took.

Thanks to Lou and Don Zahn who are coordinating workers and signup for ticket selling at the 2015 Jefferson County Fair. I’ve attached the work schedule signup sheet that Lou sent me this morning. If you can’t help with the Gyro Stand, perhaps this is the event you can help with. The Club receives payment from the Jefferson County Fair for each hour that we have a club member working at the various gates. One day of work with all of the shifts filled can really help the club budget.

On to Optimist business:

  • What would YOU like to do next year to contribute? It’s that time of the Optimist Club year to begin thinking about a slate of officers for 2015-16. How about an Exec Board position? Perhaps one that you’ve not held  in the past? Please begin thinking about volunteering to be an officer for 2015-16. “Many hands make light work.”
  • A reminder that we are now doing Gyro Stand work shift signup online. Here is the link and instructions from Teshona.
