The Downtown Optimist Club is having a Tree Dedication Ceremony for two of our club members (Forrest “Red’ Leighton and James “Jim” Beckett) next Tuesday April 4th at 5:30 P.M. at the Downtown Optimist Park at the corner of Forest & Grand Ave. This is to honor them with their 50+ years of club membership (Red with 55 years and Jim with 52 years).
YOHO (Young Optimists Helping Others) is coming up April 6th! Please join us at 1839 Taphouse (212 E Green Meadows Rd) from 5-7 pm to meet current members and find out about volunteer opportunities within the club!
