Optimist Club provides hope and a positive vision

The Optimist Club of Hillsboro wants to thank and recognize the extended community for another successful and fun-filled afternoon of golf and fellowship.

The tournament was played at The Forest Hills Golf Club. A box lunch as provided, as well as an awards banquet following the game. A great time was had by all. Because of your generosity, the Optimist Club was able to deposit approximately $10,000 into their checkbook.

It is important to know all this money is spent right here in Hillsboro, serving the kids of Hillsboro.

The Optimist Club is an international organization dedicated to provide “hope and a positive vision to bring out the best in kids.”

Optimist volunteers consist of 45 civic-minded men and women motivated by the desire to contribute to the community from which they draw their daily benefit.

They strive to aid the development of youth in the belief that by providing the kids “hope and a positive vision of themselves,” they will have the ability to achieve their goals in life.

The Optimist Club meets every Tuesday morning at 7 a.m. in the Hillsboro Senior Center. You are invited to attend a meeting and join the club.
