Mukwonago Optimist History

In 1995, some of the citizens in Mukwonago decided to join and form a chapter of the Optimist Club.  A few of our current activities are the following: 

  • Tri-Star Basketball contest for ages 6 through 13  
  • Essay and Oratorical contests for high school and middle school students
  • Hat and mitten tree in the local banks at Christmas time
  • Sponsoring a family for gift giving at Christmas time
  • Scholarships for high school seniors and 7th grade music camp participants
  • Summer drama camp held at Mukwonago High School;
  • Skateboard competition at East Troy Skateboard Park
  • Build a fishing rod day for youngsters who are age 12 or older

The Mukwonago Optimist Club meets the first and third Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. at the Mukwonago Community Library. The library is located at 300 Washington Avenue, Mukwonago, WI 53149.
