Greetings Optimist!!

So who has mowed their yard already? (or had someone mow it for them?)

On to Optimist business:

  • This week’s meeting will be Wednesday evening, April 29, 5pm at Jessica’s Restaurant. Our speakers will be Judy Harms, Whitewater High School Girls Basketball Head Coach and Sarah Schumacher, Senior Team Captain.
  • The Club is looking for a co-chair for the upcoming Gyro Stand. Who can help Duane and Barb Dickens with the arrangements and scheduling for this coming July? Please contact Duane or Barb directly of let me know if you would like to co-chair this event. It’s very important for the Club!!!!  I can provide a copy of the event planning guidelines that Duane has written if that would help you make up your mind.
  • Regarding the Gyro Stand trailer, we at least have a short-term storage location due to Mike Ciardo’s help but are looking for a long-term storage location at no-cost or very low cost. Let any of the Board Members know if you have a place/suggestion.
  • 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.”
  • Jeanine Fassl has provided information to the Whitewater Chamber of Commerce intern regarding the City-Wide Rummage Sale on May 16. Thanks Jeanine!!  I found the event listed on the Chamber calendar. If I find any more information on the Chamber site I’ll let you know.
