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 http://www.northridgeoptimist.org/2018-scholarship-scramble-fundraiser.html 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
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.
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
