New Holstein’s Optimist Club has served local youths for about 25 years through a variety of annual activities.
The club has been the sponsor of the annual Punt, Pass & Kick and Tri-Star Basketball competitions, as well as regular Husky Hangout events on Friday nights for middle school age youths. The club also fills sandboxes around Mother’s Day, honors local law enforcement each May, holds Snow Day in January, conducts an Essay Contest, and gives a $200 scholarship each year to a New Holstein High School School student.
In the past year, the club also has worked with New Holstein Middle School teachers to select the monthly Student of the Month and will be honoring the winners with a permanent plaque in the school.
Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month starting at 6:30 p. m. at the Optimist Chalet. Guests and new members are always welcome and are needed. Call (920) 286-1305 for more information about the club.
