(June 29) Letter In Optimism, from UW-Whitewater Community Optimist Club Board - The UW-Whitewater Community Optimist Club regrets that we are unable to staff the gyro stand for the Fourth of July Festival this year. This would have been the 35th year of operation, and we know that many of you will be sorely disappointed! As you might know, our Club has used the proceeds of this fundraiser to provide opportunities for the youth of the area through events such as Breakfast with Santa, the Easter Egg Hunt, a fishing derby, scholarships, youth grants, the school district emergency fund, the Whitewater Food Pantry, and much more.

We appreciate the support that the community provides through participation in our fundraisers throughout the year, but our membership has dwindled as potential new members have found themselves pulled in many directions and participation in civic groups has declined in the City of Whitewater and throughout society, in general. We welcome new members who are interested in reversing the trend and who would actively participate in helping our Club serve the youth of Whitewater. Membership is not restricted to UW-Whitewater staff; "Community" is an important word in our Club name! At one time, there were two Optimist clubs in Whitewater (University and Community) and we merged several years ago.

We hope to return to making gyros and seeing your happy faces next year, but we need your support through participation in our Club. Let's keep our "Friend of Youth" motto alive and thriving in our community! If you're interested in being a part of the solution, please contact Club President Dave Halbach at 920-650-6089, or e-mail whitewater.optimist.club@gmail.com, or see us on Facebook or visit our blog for information about joining the UW-Whitewater Community Optimist Club.

The session ended after 2 hours and 14 minutes and in open session the comment was made that no action will be taken. Also, the City Manager Cameron Clapper and Community Development Coordinator Patrick Cannon will work together at bringing a grocery store to Whitewater.

Three residents were in attendance. Due to the unavailability of the Community Room (Council Chambers) at the Municipal Building the meeting was held at the Innovation Center.

SATURDAY - July 16th, 10:00am, Natureland Park, Whitewater - The Kettle Moraine Land Trust (KMLT), a non-profit working in Walworth County, is partnering with the Whitewater Community Foundation and Feeding Walworth County to offer individuals an opportunity to explore nature and help local food pantries.

Hunger is not limited to a single demographic or geographic region, nor is it a problem for only the homeless or poor. The summer months are a difficult time for food banks and pantries. During the school year, many children get the majority of their daily calories from free or reduced price school lunches. In Walworth County elementary schools, 44% of the students take advantage of free or reduced lunches. When school is out of session, these same children need food and nourishment and many times these families turn to food pantries. According the United States Department of Agriculture, many formerly middle-class families have been forced to turn to their local food banks and food pantries for help. In the summer, food pantries need to keep their shelves stocked and this series of hikes will help do that. Contrary to popular belief, many people served by America's food banks have at least one working adult in their household. Many others are too old or too young to work. Children and the elderly are most at risk for food insecurity.

SATURDAY - July 16th, 10:00am, Natureland Park, Whitewater "WILD EDIBLES"
August 13th, 1-4pm, Price Park, Elkhorn "HAND FEED MONARCH BUTTERFLIES"
