October 2015 | Volume 43, No. 1

From the President… I want to thank all of you for your support this past year.  I was a tremendous experience serving as your President and I couldn’t have done it without you. I have people ask me what the Optimist Club is all about and I tell them “we raise lots of money, we […]

April 2015 | Volume 42, No. 7

From the President… Well, spring is finally here and along with advent of longer days and warmer weather, it’s time for the rebirth that always comes at this time of year. Ironically, that rebirth leads to this month’s goal. To add new ideas and avoid becoming stagnant, the Executive Board has a “rebirth” of sorts […]

March 2015 | Volume 42, No. 6

From the President… March is here and even for an Optimist, it might be the most depressing month of the year. Outside of March Madness, St Pat’s and Ed Schlumpf’s Spring Baseball reports, I think much that I like about March. Let’s face it, we’re tired of the cold, snow, ice and wind chill readings. […]
