35th Annual Scholarship Scramble Golf Outing Update:

The Northridge Optimist Club fundraising event, scheduled for Thursday, September 27, 2018, supports Youth Activities and Scholarships for Northridge area youths. The scholarships are administered through The Optimist Club of Dayton-Northridge Scholarship Fund, a component fund of The Dayton Foundation. Visit the 35th Annual Scholarship Scramble event page at  for more information on this golf outing which is back at Miami Valley Gold Club this year. Last year was our first year to hold the event at Miami Valley Golf Club, and it was a hit with the participants, who enjoyed the beautiful course, followed by a prime rib buffet in the MVGC dining room, plus drawings and many prizes. There will be a 1:00 PM shotgun start, with sign-in at Noon. The $120 green fee includes golf and the buffet dinner after the round. In addition to the golfing, there are sponsorship and donor opportunities. Registration forms are available for downloading from the website (via the above link). A promotional flyer for the 2018 event is also attached to this email.
Optimist Kids Day in the Park:

Saturday, August 4, 2018 has been announced as the date for "Optimist Kid's Day in the Park" this year. This is a program, sponsored by Kettering Noon Optimist Club, which presents a day with a multitude of fun activities for kids, Kindergarten to 8th Grade, held annually at Delco Park at 1700 Delco Park Drive, in Kettering. Over a dozen Optimist clubs will participate by each setting up their own event for kids to enjoy. Last year was the first year for Northridge Optimist Club participation, and members are looking forward to joining in again this year. The Northridge Optimist event theme was rocket launching. 

Community Links:

Some links of interest to the Northridge area are posted on the Northridge Optimist Club website Bulletin Board Page (under "Other Northridge Links"). One is for The Northidge Alumni Bear Facts website by The Northridge Alumni Association, and also the Northridge Schools website, and the Northridge Schools facebook page. One good way to show support of the community is to patronize the alumni businesses that are listed on the alumni website: http://www.northridge
