The West Point Optimist Club’s Annual Clothing Drive is being held today and Thursday. Drop off on Thursday is 8-noon, and adoption of clothing is from noon to 5 on Thursday. This year the amount of clothing has increased a lot. There is also bedding and blankets. Northstar has been helping the club for at least 15 years. Other community volunteers and club members help with this two day project which is going on over 30 years. Originally the drive was held in the old auditorium basement. The club is very thankful for the communities participation and help all these years. Thank you to club member Karen Baumert and JoAnn Lewis who coordinate it.
This Wednesday their monthly meeting and lunch was held at the Nielsen Center. The NE Optimist Lt. Governor Zone 2 Marquerite Hansen from Valley was a guest.
The Club also welcomed Candra Guenther, Onie Michaelis, Andy Fuston and Jeff Axtell with membership packets and framed certificates.
