One might think that a list that long covers everything, but they would be wrong. Additionally, the Truckee Optimist Club awards four scholarships to high school graduates each year. The scholarships range from $2,500 to $4,000 each. 

The club's ability to fund these important projects comes from the success in their community events. Namely, the Cannibal Car Cruise, Christmas Tree Sales, and the Brew Fest. 

The Truckee Optimist Brew Fest is what caught my attention today because it is fast approaching. It will be held on Saturday, June 8, 2013, 1:00 to 5:00 p.m. Attendees will taste specialty brews from Northern California and Nevada breweries, enjoy live music and lots of fun at Truckee River Regional Park

They say it's a great way to kick off the summer. I agree! It's also a great way to support the community.
