New Holstein’s Optimist Club has served local youths for about 23 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 does a Youth Appreciation Week activity, fills sandboxes around Mother’s Day, honors local law enforcement each May, and gives a $200 scholarship each year to a New Holstein High School School student, among other activities.
Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of each month starting at 5:45 p. m. at the Optimist Chalet. Guests and new members are always welcome and are needed.
