Welcome to Our Club!

Sauk Trails Optimist Club - Madison currently has 40 members. We have weekly lunch meetings at the Radisson in Madison, where we enjoy a variety of speakers, enjoy each others company, and have a lot of fun sharing in 'Happy Dollars' which go to our 501c3 Foundation for the youth.  Following are some of our many yearly activities:

-  Sponsoring and supporting a Spartan Youth Service JOI Team of  over 200 youth.
    (The JOOI Team provides many hours of community service each year). 

 - Support the Reach-A-Child program not only with yearly funding but also with monthlly volunteering.  
    (Back-packs with books are given to first time responders to use in 'tragic'  situations affecting youth.)

 - Sponsoring and supporting a yearly Chistmas program with gifts for over 100 kids at the Lussier Community.
 - Providing scholarships to youth who are good students and have provided service in their communities.

 - Honoring officers through an annual Respect for Law program.

 - Providing optimists and JOI youth support in the running of Special Track Olympics in Oregon, Wi. 

We have quarterly Social events, where potential future members are invited to learn more about our club.  We have weekly lunch get-togethers at the Radisson on Grand Canyon in Madison at 11:45 AM, where anyone can attend as a Guest to find out more about our club, meet our Optimists, hear a speaker, and have a great time.

Our newsletters & weekly communication provides information of the clubs continued activities.   (Newsletters for the Current and Previous Years are in the About Area of the STOC Website at this link:      SWIS_Newsletters ).
