Optimist Club 2014-15, week of August 3

5:22 pm Uncategorized

Greetings Optimist!!

Well, after vacation the week of July 20 and business travel the first half of last week, it’s time for me get back in the Optimist mode.

We WILL have a regular club meeting  August 4, 12:00 PM, in the University Center, room 264. (Our normal meeting room is closed for carpet cleaning.) This will be a “bring your own lunch” day. Our speaker will be Warhawk Football Head Coach Kevin Bullis!! Hope to see many of you there.

In other Optimist business:

  • It’s time to organize the slate of officers for 2015-16. At this time no one has yet volunteered for any of the exec board positions. How about an Exec Board position? Perhaps one that you’ve not held in the past? Please consider volunteering to be an officer for 2015-16. “Many hands make light work.”
  • I could use help contacting possible speakers for the next 2-3 months. If you have speaker ideas or would be willing to make calls for the club, please let me know.
  • Our Facebook page still has 92 “Likes!” So close to 100. Check the new cover photo with a picture of Al Hutchinson at the Fishing Derby.
  • Did you see the SWIS district email announcement about Optimist Day at Miller Park! Saturday, August 15th Brewers take on the Phillies – 6:10PM. Again check your email or the SWIS district web site for details.
