Dr. Richard Bauscher was the guest speaker at the Middleton Area Optimist Club meeting on September 27. Dr. Bauscher spoke to a very interested group about the progress on the new Middleton High School and shared architectural renderings of the development.
Of great interest was traffic control and the Optimist Club volunteered their help and support to make this campus and all school campuses as safe as possible.
It was also interesting to learn that the school will hold over 1,500 students so there is room for growth. The football, soccer and tennis courts were discussed. The high school does not currently have a tennis program, but one is being started in the middle school to feed into the system.
President Patrick Halpin thanked Dr. Bauscher for his presentation. In other business, the club will be selling TV raffle tickets at the Oregon Trail Church barbecue on Saturday. Members are invited to attend. The church has offered that the Optimist Club may use their gymnasium as a community center and for meetings. This will be discussed at the next meeting along with some other quick projects to get the club moving.
An invitation has been extended to Tory Von Wolfe, President, Middleton Community Center Board to address the next meeting on October 4, 2010. Hope to see you there.
And in conclusion, two more members joined our club. Welcome to Drea Contreras and Don Bertelson.
