Last week we held our April business and Board Meeting Last Friday, four of us Richfield Optimists journeyed to Roseville to attend their April luncheon meeting. (Lindgren, Odefey, Bjostad, Fogarty) We heard from former International OI President Rebecca Mona, a very dynamic speaker. Roseville has about 100 members that meet once a month. It is a very unique club in that they do a table talk at each table to get to know each other better as a part of every meeting. 


The Chili and salad dinner is well underway by a combined committee of Richfield and Bloomington Optimists. It is scheduled for April 26, 2024 with serving from 4PM to 7 PM. Held at Oak Grove Lutheran Church 7045 Lyndale Ave. S. In Richfield. Posters and tickets available now. Adult tickets are $10.00 and children under 12 eat free. We need every Optimist member to get behind this and sell tickets, and bring your family and friends to the dinner to make this a success. 


We are attempting to re-start our Junior Optimist Club at Richfield High School before school ends this spring. Our previous club faltered with the covid pandemic and loss of our advisor. We’re ready to go full steam ahead with this very worthwhile part of serving youth.


Come in person if you can. Or catch the meeting on Zoom. Watch your e-mail for your weekly Zoom invite!
