On March 12, 2023, our Optimist Club presented the “Coo Olympics”, a new fund raiser for our club, to our Menomonee Falls downtown area. A well-received event by our six local downtown establishments and the 90 players with an average age of 50+ that participated in playing 11 games, raffles, food, and having just a whole lot of fun with the volunteers, friends, and families surrounding them. Special thanks go out to The Hot House, Sal’s Pub and Grille, Players Pub, Wisconsin on Tap, Krueger’s Bowl, and the American Legion for providing space to do the games in their establishments and gift certificates for all of our winners. A special thank you to the American Legion for providing a place for the awards’ presentations, 50/50 raffle and an in-house raffle, along with great food provided to all. A special shout out to our head chef, Mr. Greg Mattson. A daunting adventure, months in the making, a few flaws here and there but truly a great outcome. A huge thank you to 25+ volunteers of which a third of them weren’t even club members. We couldn’t have done it without them. So, at the end of the day, a WIN WIN for the Optimist Club and our kids along with a great partnership with the American Legion, and our Vets. The Coo Olympics netted $2,200.00+ and with so many requests for a return engagement, we definitely are considering coming back next year. Hope to see more of you participate in some way. Happy 50 Years, Optimist Club of Menomonee Falls!!!!!!
