THE KNOW BRAINER  
The Know Brainer was very successful on April 8th, with eight teams of 4th and 5th graders participating. This year’s winner was North Ridge Elementary with 2nd place going to
Littleton Academy and Mark Twain Elementary rounding out the top three winners.
Thanks to Ralph Dergance, Gary Olmstead, Connie Ackerman and all those who
worked diligently to make this event a success.
April also saw the essay contests winners read their winning essays to our membership at one of our Friday  meetings, hosted by Chairman Steve Patterson. All  were very well done and we presented the winners  with certificates, medals and checks for their efforts.  Superintendent of Littleton Schools officials are often included in such award ceremonies.
YOUTH APPRECIATION DAY 
We held Youth Appreciation Day and Hank Wyeno did an excellent job putting together
the program where we recognized outstanding students from four Littleton
Middle Schools. Their parents and teachers joined us for a recognition ceremony at
our breakfast meeting.
ORATORICAL CHAMPION FROM OCL 
The Oratorical District Competition was held in April. Matthew Yohannes from Arapahoe
High School was the first place winner and is now moving on to the District
contest to be held in Denver in early May. Thanks to Darrell Schulte for doing a fine
job in heading up this event, something he has done for twenty-five years.
 
During the month of May we will be having the Rockies pregame picnic 
AND game on May 7th.
 
On June 5th we have a fundraiser for the Optimist Junior Golf
Golf Tournament to be held at Broken Tee Golf Course in Englewood.


NEW OPTIMISTS WANTED: MESSAGE FROM CHASE MALHOIT

At various times during the year, the OCL provides opportunities to invite new potential members into the club.  The Now Committee represents this effort and is currently directed by member Chase Malhiot. Our NOW events often have district officials in attendance.  We also invite various community sponsors and businesses to such events.
 
BRING A GUEST TO THE NEXT CLUB MEETING!!!

The membership committee will be discussing some ways we can improve our NOW events. If you have any suggestions please feel free to contact Chase with names. Thank you again for all the help and support.
