WE DID IT!!!!  The 7th Annual Parent Holiday Drop & Shop is now in the history books and once again a huge success.  Prior to the event, 144 children were pre-registered.  We had 113 children actually attend, 42 wonderful Optimist volunteers, and 36 student volunteers partake in all the fun and festivities.

To all the club members who continue to support this event year after year, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!  Thank you for all being so flexible and jumping in to different areas to keep things flowing along.  That was truly above and beyond!!

To Jason Husslein and the Rec Dept. staff – we would not be able to put so many smiles on so many faces without all you do for the Optimist Club.  Thank you for your partnership and support.

Sincere thanks and appreciation goes out to Alice Barbeln, Gloria Behr, Jean Christian, Linda Christman, Jim Dieter, Don Eisenhauer, Steve Fleming, Ann Freudenthal, Joy Fricke, Larry & Marcia Hebbring, Gail Heinecki, Kathryn Hoff, Jason Husslein, Kathie Jensen, Kathy Kiepert, Cory Kleeba, Linda Kons, Rema Kunnath, Peter Lalonde, Meg Latus (along with Nora & Mason), Kathy Matthiessen, Deb & Greg Mattson, Diane Matuszek, Jenny O’Keefe, Chris O’Reilly, Gary & Laurie Pollpeter, Corrine & Joe Reiter, Nancy & Randy Schopf, Rose Schwartz, Kirsten Sperl, Carl Trapp, Kathy Walkner, Joanne Wanner, Bob Wenzel, & Linda Zylka
