Optimist Club 2014-15, week of June 22

Uncategorized No Comments

Greetings Optimist!!

Please contact Lou or Don Zahn regarding latest signups and open slots for working the Jefferson County Fair on July 8. The Club receives payment from the Jefferson County Fair for each club member for each hour working at the various gates. One day of work with all of the shifts filled really helps the club programming budget.

On to other Optimist business:

  • This week’s meeting will be Wednesday, June 24, Jessica’s Restaurant, 5:00 pm. We’ll discuss club business, including the Gyro Stand.
  • 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.”
  • Tuesday, July 7, NO CLUB MEETING.
  • Did you see the pictures I posted on the Club’s Facebook Group page from Saturday’s work session on the Gyro Stand trailer?

Speakers for upcoming meetings are:

  • Tuesday, July 21, 12 Noon, Dr. Hank Mol and Lee Murray speaking about their respective “Honor Flight” experiences. (Thanks Hans and Carla for arranging these speakers.)

Dates for upcoming club meetings and events include:

  • Thursday, July 2-Sunday, July 5, Gyro Stand at Whitewater 4th of July Celebration.
  • Tuesday, July 7, NO MEETING!
