John Ramthun of 6:8 visits with Sauk Prairie Optimists


On November 1, John Ramthun of 6:8 spoke to the Sauk Prairie Optimist Club about potential uses for the former Quartz Insurance property at the corner of Sycamore and Carolina Streets in Sauk City. Building on the success of the Circles Program, which provides support to individuals and families to lift themselves out of poverty, the goal of Sycamore Center is to provide a space that brings together multiple agencies, childcare, mental health services, food, job training, and other resources. Listening Sessions are still being held to get community input. Upcoming sessions will take place on November 27 at 6 p.m. in the 6:8 Building and December 3 at 9:30 a.m. at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Sauk City. The Sauk Prairie Optimists meet at the 6:8 dining room, 821 Industry Road, Sauk City, on the first and third Wednesdays at 7 a.m. If there is a fifth Wednesday in the month, the club meets at the Sauk Prairie School District Board meeting room at noon. November 29 will be a fifth Wednesday meeting – please join us, as visitors are always welcome! Pictured, Diane Shaw, Optimist Member, with John Ramthun of 6:8.
