Optimist members,

As we turn the calendar to November that signifies, we are only weeks away from the 11th Annual Parent Holiday Drop & Shop.  If you are new to the club here’s a little summary.  On Saturday, December 4th from 10 am until 2 pm we will be face to face with approximately 125 – 150 children between the ages of 3 – 10 years old.  Parents are given a little break to take care of holiday tasks whether it be shopping, baking, wrapping presents or just need a little “ME” time away from the kiddos.  We entertain the children with making crafts, visiting with Santa, watching holiday movies, challenge their little minds in the I Spy Room, show off their creative talents with the Young Rembrandts Drawing Program and hands on demonstrations provided by the Art Guild of Menomonee Falls, burning off some energy running the obstacle course in the gym and have lunch.

We always need extra hands-on deck to help make this event a yearly success.  If you are interested in spending some time with other Optimist Club members than WE WANT YOU!  Please contact Dawn Mariscal directly by phone/text to (262)442-4952 or by sending an email to

There will be a volunteer briefing meeting on Tuesday, November 16th @ 6:30 pm at the American Legion Post located at N88W16652 Main St in the lower level.  Hope you can join us and find out more about how fun this event is.
