Optimist Clubs show appreciation for youth

This post may not seem like a big deal. After all, we've seen a couple similar ones already; but I believe the main purpose of an Optimist Club is to put on programs that benefit, involve or recognize children. To that end, I promise to publish every recognition program I discover where the kids are recognized for something other than purely athletic or academic pursuits.

Kudos to:
The Capital Area Optimist Club of San Marcos, Texas recognized students at the Baptist Academy for arts, music and community services.

The Optimist Club of Flint Hills,KS for recognizing some outstanding students from the Emporia, Northern Heights, Olpe and Hartford high schools.

The Sunrise Optimist Club of Columbia, Missouri for recognizing the children at the Coyote Hills Christion Home with a college softball tailgate party and game.

Stories are welcome! Please send your links to linda [at] newoptimistclub (dot) com.
