Optimist Clubs hold Just Say No poster contest

Each year the East Missouri District helps the Optimist Clubs in their jurisdiction relay an anti-drug message to their communities by holding the Just Say No poster contest. Some clubs have participated annually for more than 25 years including the Optimist Club of Maryville, MO.

According to an Optimist Club spokesperson, their project is coordinated with the DARE officer for all students in fourth grade. Top honors went to Abbie Loe and Brody Snow. Their posters will advance to Branson, MO for district judging.
