We invite you to attend our weekly meetings, Tuesday at 12:00 Noon on the UW-Whitewater campus, to learn more about Optimism. For more information, please contact Dave Halbach, President, at 262-472-5749.

The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater/Community Optimist Club was organized in November 1991 to further promote Optimist International’s focus of being a “Friend of Youth.”

Our club’s slogan is “Connecting Campus and Community.” With this slogan, we believe that by combining the efforts of University staff and members of the Whitewater community, we can maximize our potential to “connect” with area youth and have a positive influence on their development.

We have learned that there is a tremendous need and opportunity to help enhance the quality of life of our youth. And, we know that we have the potential to impact 30 youngsters per club member. So, we ask you to consider our Optimist organization.
