With the theme, Christmas Toyland, club members created a Christmas morning scene sure to delight big and little children alike. This was the 15th year that the Middleton Chamber of Commerce coordinated the Middleton Christmas Parade and the third entry for the Optimist Club. Earlier entries garnered third and second place finishes, but this time, according to Kim and others, the club members really pulled together in the last two weeks to make the float special.
The creation of the float highlighted the social activity that makes an Optimist Club special. Mike and Joan Walker, newer members of the club, remarked, "Glad to be a part of a great club. Way to pull it together in awesome fashion." And that, my friends, is what being an Optimist Club member is all about.
