4/29/17 – A Beaver Dam group is working to help brighten the future of local children. The Optimists Club serves 18 non-profit agencies that have youth as their focus. Club President Margaret Theis explains some of the things their group focuses on when they recently joined us at WBEV’s Community Comment. Theis says that the club will work on fundraising efforts to help support these groups and give personal support by assisting at different events. Jeff Rehberg, who is a member of the club, says their optimist creed is what makes them different from other civic groups. He says the creed is a set of principles that guide your existence as members and acts as a source of energy. Adding that it helps you look at the world through rosy colored glasses or to see the cup half full. The Optimist Club says that they are looking for more members to join their group. There will be a membership drive this Sunday at 6pm at John’s Bar in Beaver Dam. For more information on the club you can call 920-885-5396.
