A note from the UWW Community Optimist Club regarding the Gyro Stand at the 4th of July Festival

The members of the UW-W Community Optimist Club want to thank you for the years that you have supported our Gyro Stand at the Whitewater 4th of July Celebration! From the beginning of our club in 1981 (at that time the Whitewater Optimist Club) the gyro stand has been a good source of funding for the programs we support along with a wonderful interaction with members of the community.

Unfortunately, the stand will not be at the Cravath Lakefront this year. The club can no longer meet the demands of this effort, and we are sorry to miss the Festival.

As a service club, we welcome new members and volunteers so that we can continue offering community events such as Youth Appreciation Week, Breakfast with Santa, the Toys for Kids program, the Easter Egg Hunt and the Free Fishing Day. We also provide support for the Whitewater School District Emergency Fund, the Whitewater Food Pantry and other programs for the kids of Whitewater.

Please consider joining our club! You can find more information on-line at: https://blogs.uww.edu/uwwcommunityoptimist/ or contact any of our members. We welcome your questions and support.
