34th Annual Scholarship Scramble Golf Outing:

This year we are moving the event to Miami Valley Golf Club, which will offer our participants one of the top courses in the area. As usual, proceeds from the event go to Northridge student scholarships and other Northridge area youth activities.
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 that are listed

Optimist Kids Day in the Park:
• "Optimist Kid's Day in the Park" 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. This year the event was held on Saturday, August 5, with over a dozen Optimist clubs participate
by each setting up their own event for kids to enjoy.
• Northridge Optimist Club participated in the event,
and the activity presented by our club was rocket launching. The rockets that the kids launched were made of light
weight material and were launched by compressed air that the contestants pumped up themselves. Prizes of rockets kits were
awarded to kids whose rocket landed in a hula hoop target. In addition there were demonstration launches of fuel propelled
rockets (one every hour). Nearly 500 kids attended the event on a beautiful day. The kids enjoyed the launchings , and
the club members and volunteers were happy to see the kids have so much fun with the rockets. A slide show of the Northridge
Optimist activity can be seen on the Northridge Optimist Club website's Bulletin Board Page at this link: http://www. northridgeoptimist.org/club- bulletin-board
