Mandy Curry, DOC President 2015-2016
Hello fellow Optimists! Are you ready for a new year of projects, fundraisers,
and FUN?!?! I am so excited to be your Club President for this upcoming year. I
have been meeting with many members of the club all ready to come up with new
ideas for the upcoming year. There are so many opportunities for our club to
grow as we move forward. Since this membership year will be our club's 100th
anniversary year, we have more potential than ever!
I want to personally invite each and every one of you
to our first meeting of the membership year on Friday, October 2nd. At this
first meeting of the new Optimist year, we will be talking about the goals of
the club and all of the exciting things we have planned for the year. Let's make
this year a year of celebration. Our club has a lot to be proud of . . . so
For those members that have not been able to join us at our Friday meetings due
to schedule conflicts, we want to invite you to join us for our once a month
evening meeting that we recently added to our schedule. You will have the
opportunity to hear about all of our club happenings and to be a part of all of
our activities this coming year. Our first evening meeting is Monday, October
5th at 6:30 p.m. at the Wendy's located at 3223 East Washington Street (at the
corner of Washington St and LaSalle). All are welcome to attend!
