October 1, 2019 is the beginning of our new Optimist Year. As our year moves forward, watch for our weekly programs, projects, awards, new members and Optimist International programs which we sponsor giving youth in our community scholarship opportunities.
During the month of November, the St. Cloud Optimists seek nominations for outstanding youth from various local youth service organizations. On November 27nd, during Youth Appreciation week, the Optimist Clubs recognized 8 area youth who were nominated for their efforts in community service work. This is perfect opportunity for clubs to make a difference in their community and demonstrate the Optimists' commitment to young people. These nominees are invited to a Youth Appreciation Breakfast and given a plaque for their efforts. This year's breakfast was at the Boy Scout Offices
This years nominators and receiptants are Big Brothers, Big Sisters/Justin Barber, East Side Boys and Girls Club/Maya Shimabukure-King, Girl Scouts/Katlin Bennet, Tech High School/Elizbeth Hennen, Boys Scouts/Adam Burton, Apollo High School/ Derick Stanoch, and Boys and Girls Club/ Gianna Johnson. Not present was the St Cloud Hospital nominatee Dan Yuan
Dan Yuan visited our Club on December 11 to receive his plaque and check. He was nominated by the St Cloud Hospital.
On September 26 the St Cloud Morning Club
had our installation banquet to kick off our new year 2019-2020.
DMM Governor, Dave Martin, installed our new leaders Makayla Wijeratne as President and new board member Don Berger.
