Optimist Club to participate in Service Club Olympics

The Rotary, Soroptimist and Optimist Clubs will challenge the reigning Kiwanis Club for the gold medal in the Second Annual Service Club Olympics in Fremont, Ohio.  The event kicks off at 9:45 a.m., Sunday, September 13 in conjunction with the Joy of Living Farmer's Market in downtown Fremont. 

Friendly competition will take place in Prescription Polo, Stimulus Shop Put, Carpet Curling, Brain Freeze Fencing and Try-athalon.  No, I haven't a clue as to how they will be played, what the rules are or how competitors will be dressed (business suits, perhaps?), but I know it will be fun.  Getting together with other service clubs and building cameraderie and community spirit is part of the joy of belonging to an service club.  In addition to being given a gold medal and bragging rights, the winning organization will be awarded $500 for their cause. 

Sharing pride and purpose is the cornerstone of an engaged community. There are no losers in this bunch!
