Optimist Club serves up free pasta

The Optimist Club of Waterdown, Ontario recently held a free pasta dinner for the community and more than 350 people turned out for the food and fun. Coordinated by the 11-member service club, this event helped stock the food pantry as visitors were asked to bring a non-perishable food item in exchange for admission, but according to Don Johnson, Optimist Club member and event coordinator, the real reason behind the activity was community-building.
